Flour - Wheat, White and in Between
I've finally found a type of flour that I like using for all my cooking and baking! It isn't whole wheat - but it is close. It is an organic, hard, red, winter wheat flour that is sifted to remove most of the bran - but retain the germ. It is an amazing and versatile flour that I've been using in cookies and anything else that calls for flour. That wheat germ is oh-so-healthy, and my baked goods don't have the whole-wheat grittiness.
I got the flour from a fantastic natural foods co-op called Azure Standard. I paid less for this organic product than I would have for regular white flour at my local "big box" grocery store. Here's a link to the product page: https://www.azurestandard.com/shop/product/695/
This company is in the pacific northwest, but they ship UPS - as well as freight delivery. Check them out. And check out this fantastic flour!
