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.

Sonora has a nutty, buttery flavor well suited for richly flavored breads, pastries and piecrusts. richly flavored breads (up to 50%).

    Used this flour for the first time today. Made pizza dough. The dough turned out the best ever. It stretched without any resistance or rebound. I was so surprised. Will only use this flour for my pizza dough from now on.

    Still experimenting

    When combined with 50% white bread flour, Sonora made a soft and silky dough before baking, then a wonderful loaf afterwards. Still using it in various combinations with other flours

    Love this flour!

    On the road and space is limited in your RV? Besides my Mockmill, Sonora wheat berries are coming along! This versatile flour can be used in all your favorite baked goods. From rustic breads, crackers, puff pastry, cookies and light cakes....to chef feedings. Sometimes I bolt it, sometimes I use it 100% I love this Texas grain.
