Since getting your cracked rye flour, I have made 5 loaves of bread and most likely will not buy regular baked bread again unless it is some specialty bread. A 1 inch slice of my bread easily satisfies any hunger cravings with its molasses and honey ingredients. Because it is stone ground, my only complaint is the occasional crunch of a stone particle.
I use the cracked rye as a hot cereal, sometimes straight and sometimes mixed with rolled oats. I like the taste and texture as well as the ability to mix up whole grains. I recommend the cracked rye and will be purchasing again.
Cracked rye was very hard for me to find in the Chicago area; much of the time I had to buy small quantities of cracked rye from the largest online retailer. Until I found Janie's Mill. The quality of their cracked rye is superior to all of the cracked rye that I purchased in the past.
since Red River Cereal is no longer made, had to try to duplicate the cereal which is the basis for a hearty, whole-grain molasses bread ... Janie's Mill comes to the rescue with both cracked wheat and cracked rye ... these two grains combined with brown and golden flax and you've got the best 'copycat' Red River Cereal ... keep up the great work, Janie's Mill ...
I first bought this cracked rye before the Covid pandemic and I've returned to it because it has best flavor I can find (presumably because it's the freshest). Since the pandemic, whole grain rye has disappeared from local shelves and the cost of Janie's Mill, even with shipping half way across the country, is close to the best I can find for rye "chops." I use the rye to bake a complex "Cornell" bread which includes all sorts of protein additions, even sourdough and eggs. I wish the texture were slightly coarser, more like that of cracked wheat, just to achieve a certain complex mouth feel. But I wonder whether that's even possible?
