    What a taste

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

    Great for Bread

    I used this flour to make a loaf of bread in my Zojirushi bread maker and it turned out perfect and delicious!!!

    Super for Sourdough

    I tried Yecora Rojo and Marquis for my artisan sourdough, but I like Rouge de Bordeaux best for taste and aroma.

    Best flour I’ve ever used.

    This flour has such a wonderful flavor and texture with a very high protein count that even 100% whole wheat can create and airy open crumb with a chewy yet crisp crust.

    Type 00 makes the most wonderful croissants I’ve ever made.

    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.

    Delicious.

    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

    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
