Like a lot of people, I discovered Janie’s Mill when my local market was always out of KA flour. It is slightly more expensive, but it’s worth it since their flours will take your baking to a whole new level. Our son, who has access to many great bakeries in Brooklyn, says my homemade breads are as good, if not better!
I have used High Protein, Whole Kernel, Dark Rye, Frederick White & Artisan flours,
and they are all good.
Experiment with different blends to see what you like. My average hydration is around 85%, and I prefer an overnight rise in the fridge. I never knead the dough, just use the folding technique. Also, I find it very important to form a tight skin around the dough prior to the final proof.
This flour is my favorite flour to feed my starter with. It keeps it strong and healthy. It will last over a week in my fridge without feeding thanks to this strong, living flour. I love all Janie's Mill products, but the Artisan Blend Flour is a staple in my stock.
When the flour shelves were bare and my former source had shipping issues, I was prompted to find an alternative source. Thanks to some of my favorite reads, I found Janie’s Mill, started ordering and baking . It was love at first bite. This is my workhorse choice for artisan breads, sourdough rolls and waffles. I have enjoyed all of the flours and grains received. I can now pick up my “old flour” which I might do in a pinch, but Janie’s Mill flours are my first choice.
I use this flour to feed my starter and use it to make boules and baguettes all the time. You get a crisp exterior and an airy crumb. It's also a go-to when I make rolls as well. So versatile!
Love this flour for feeding my sourdough starter. It always makes my starter happy and bubbly.
