Outstanding flour. Great to work with, and produced beautiful bread with complex flavors
Nice crust and crumb.
It will be a new work horse in my future bread baking.

I have recently discovered the Shorties Pizza Pies here in Austin. The combo of Rojo and Ruby is a winner. Greek Style pizza like I have never tasted before

Wonderful result

My first purchase from you and I’m already enjoying the products!
I combined the 00 flour of this variety with a small amount of Rouge de Bordeaux WW (20% of all flour) to make a loaf. The dough had nice stretches and the bread turned out with wonderful oven spring! I will come back to purchase more in the future.

Love it!

Beautiful as whole wheat flour in fermented sourdough. Also used the 00 as bread flour last year when TAM 105 was out of stock, and it was wonderful.

New Favorite Shirt

This is my new favorite shirt. They are very soft and comfortable, although they are a tad bit long for my taste. Not a big deal by any means - I've had it two weeks and already worn it 3 or 4 times.

Yecora Rojo

I bought the Yecora Red to make some artisan sourdough & it came out so delicious. It has a wonderful nuttiness with great complex flavors. Just love it. Can’t wait to try some of the “00” sifts.

Just what I wanted!

After having blue cornbread on a trip to Colorado, I looked everywhere for the cornmeal to make it after returning home to Boston. Luckily I found it through Barton Springs Mill, and it arrived a few days after ordering. I've already used it several times for several different recipes. It's awesome, and exactly the flavor and quality I was looking for. Highly recommend!!

What a taste

I baked already two sourdough loafs with the flour and the taste and smell is amazing.

Helped with colic from breast milk!

I have three kids and breast fed all of them and I always had to watch my wheat intake otherwise my babies were gassy. I thought for whatever reason it was the gluten but then I learned that it’s actually how the wheat is made and what pesticides were used that upsets the babies and the mamas through the breast milk. So this third time around I have been searching for an organic wheat flour that wouldn’t upset my 6 month old’s tummy through the breast milk and I say success! I have baked muffins and cakes with this flour and have no complaints! If you want a fluffy result I’d recommend sifting as I would with any flour. Very happy and will buy again
