Sonora is one of the oldest surviving wheat varieties anywhere in North America. Predating Red Fife and Turkey Red wheat, it is a soft white, round winter wheat with pale red grains.

While earliest records document its existence in the mountain plains of Sonora, Mexico in the early 1700s, the wheat surely predates that era by generations. It was widely planted in California by the early 1800s.

    Perfect for tortillas

    I make tortillas weekly for my family and wanted to switch from store bought AP to an organic Sonoran flour. I tried a company local to me in CA but it was too coarse, the dough didn’t get strong enough, and they sell out often. I was happy to find Barton Springs and used the chat feature to ask if the whole wheat or ‘00’ would be better for tortillas. They said a mix would be a good idea so I bought both and just made a batch using a ratio of 3/5 whole wheat and 2/5 ‘00’ (1.5c and 1c) 2.5c total with .5c crisco and 1c warm water (makes 12). I don’t think tortillas require weighing like when baking. You can always add a little flour or water when kneading into get the consistency just right. I added some water on my hands when kneading as I think it requires a little more than traditional AP. They turned out perfectly — strong enough to not rip when transferring/flipping yet super soft and flavorful. I can’t wait to try more of their products!

    Not for tortillas

    I received my order of Sonora 00 and made tortillas right away. I bought the Sonora on your recommendation to use it for tortillas, as I had made them for years in Nicaragua, but only had access to locally ground, imported Russian wheat.

    The Sonora tortillas were delicately flavored and very tender, but they had no cohesiveness. I suspected that would be the case, as they didn't need to be rolled out; it was sufficient to pat them out. Under the weight of fillings they came apart in the hand. It would probably make good empanadas or in a similar style where they could be eaten off a plate with a fork, but tortillas are traditionally used as a vehicle for hand held food. “Wheat flour tortillas have been used on many spaceflights since 1985 as an easy solution to the problem of handling food in microgravity and preventing bread crumbs from escaping into delicate instruments.” (Wikipedia)

    This is lovely flour, but I think it is misleading to recommend it for tortillas.
