    Rouge de Bordeaux Great in Sourdough Bread

    I added some Rouge de Bordeaux whole wheat to the most recent sourdough bread I made. It was DELICIOUS! Superb results.

    Great grains for all types of baking

    I typically make sourdough bread and the Rouge de Bordeaux creates great bubbles of all different sizes within the bread, which is a good thing. The chewy texture also makes for a wonderful eating experience along with the taste of wheat, which is muted in less costly flours. I've also used the blue cornmeal for tamales and waffles and the texture and taste is superb. These are very high quality grains. A bit more costly than conventional flours, so not ideal for everyday home use if on a budget, but you definitely get what you pay for.

    I’ve now added this to a sourdough and French loaf. Amazing depth of flavor!

    Whole Wheat Is Very Tasty

    I have not ordered whole wheat for any of the flours I have used in the past, but wanted to make a loaf of wheat bread. The Rouge de Bordeaux is perfect and very tasty. I used half whole wheat and half of Tam 000. The loaf came out perfect and the family loved it.

    Tastiest Flour for Bread

    My family and I had a bread tasting at home with different flours from the mill. Ruby Lee came out on top with Yecora Rojo as a near tie.

    In the Refer

    I haven’t used this flour yet…in storage [temporarily]. I will make a batch of buckwheat waffles with thick-cut oats added on top while cooking, eat a couple of squares and freeze the balance for another day [not to far off]. Also going to make some noodles…Can’t wait to taste the rich taste of this grain.

    Delightful!!

    Beautiful, creamy grits with little flecks of red...
    Great flavor!! Thank you all so much!!!
