When you use your carb allowance you want it to be something to appreciate. This fits the bill.
I've made pie crust and bread and now sourdough starter is going. Can't wait to try it I recommend this flour and this mill.
I first learned about Red Fife from my brother who uses 25% Red Fife (with the rest white or artisanal flour) and I started looking for it. He got his in Canada and said it wasn't available in the US. Eventually I found two sources of good Red Fife and started getting into 100% Red Fife bread (using Peter Reinhart's Whole Grain Bread book) . Of the two, Janie's Mill was by far the more convenient because they have so many other great grains available. I am currently using 50/50 Red Fife and Turkey Red to get a bit more than the pure Red Fife in my yeast bread. But Red Fife has found its way into so many other things -- from cornbread (with Bloody Butcher cornmeal--which is my daughter's favorite) to sauces. I should probably diversify, but honestly, I'm hooked on the taste of Red Fife.
I’ve really enjoyed using so many wheat varieties from Janie’s Mill since starting my sourdough journey two years ago. This Red Fife has quickly become my favorite. The flavor of this flour is absolutely beautiful. I find myself adding it to nearly everything I bake. It also absorbs water really well which allows me to play with higher hydration formulas.
I loved baking with this flour and what it added to my results!
The taste of red fife is really good, far more complex than most whole wheat flours you can buy in the market. It's the kind of wheat you would use for any type of bread, from table bread to sandwich breads. It used to be the gold standard in Canada until recently. It's the kind of of bread that everyone would enjoy, no one would dislike, but at the same time, not terribly remarkable.
