    Great bread flour

    I mill these berries for whole grain or high extraction bread flour. Rouge de Bordeaux adds depth and a wonderful, unique aroma and taste. I use in all naturally-leavened, artisan bread, which is about all I make.


    I use about 40% sifted, freshly milled Rouge de Bordeaux when I mix my sourdough (Tartine country bread recipe- about 78-80% hydration) and it is delicious! The flavor is awesome and the crumb stays open and airy. I usually throw the sifted off germ and bran into the freezer for when I make Irish brown bread, which also turns out wonderfully. I have reordered this variety multiple times because it is a family favorite.
