Yecora Rojo, a favorite of West Coast artisan sourdough bakers (i.e. Tartine) was developed by the International Maize & Wheat Improvement Center in Cooperation with the Mexican ministry of Agriculture in Mexico.

It was first received in California in 1970. Yecora Rojo is a standout performer for bread making; it is texturally smooth and lightweight, while exuding buttery and creamy flavors that enhance the end results of any baked item. Out of all the varietals we offer, Yecora Rojo is a Mill favorite, and staff pick!

    I’m enjoying using your flours again especially to make breads of Italian and French parameters and types of European flours, learning curves!

    Very tasty

    I am not a professional baker, but I have been baking two loaves of white bread and a loaf of rye every week for my family for about 15 years and used to use King Arthur bread flour. When I discovered Barton Springs Mill I started using their wheat flours and now I cannot go back! However, as tasty as Yecora Rojo is I cannot make it work for my bread recipes. It does require more liquid, though first bag took more than my second order. Takes longer to rise and still doesn't rise well. The bread is not elastic, but crumbly (if that's a word). I tried mixing it with Rouge de Bordeaux, the results were much better, but still can't compare to 100% Rouge bread. The rye bread came out OK, even though didn't rise well, and I haven't tried baking my rye bread with other varieties to compare. Overall, I give it 5 stars and will buy it again and continue exploring with other types of baking products because I love that flavor.

    short

    The last two orders were incorrect. First order we ordered 3, 5lb All Purpose flower we got 2 1/2lb instead. We were charged the higher price. Second ordered we ordered 6, 5lb All Purpose flower and we got 6, 2 1/2lb instead.We were charged the higher price again. We would love a response to this problem. [****] Doyce

    These make the best hummus.

    Canned chickpeas just don’t measure up. These, plus Soom Tahini, plus a proprietary blend of citrus juice 🍋, olive oil, diced chilis 🌶 and spices, make the best hummus ever. And don’t even get me started on couscous salad. Happy and satisfied customer. Will absolutely order again.

    Outstanding! Nutty flavor!

    Wow! I have every wheat grain Barton offers and several not offered but this is my favorite! This has a beautiful nutty taste unique to it. I wish berries were available!!! Outstanding and well worth your trying it.
