I was introduced to Red Fife wheat just a few weeks ago and I’m hooked!! I have mixed it with hard white and hard red wheat to make bread and LOVE the results! Great flavor and texture!
I made a sourdough bread with this wheat. It was excellent. My sourdough started is all fresh ground rye. Janie's Mill does a great job with packaging. Looking forward to trying the black Emmer next.
Red Fife tastes great, don't get me wrong, but it makes for a very slack dough so it's not very easy to work with. It does much better combined with another more elastic flour like Warthog.
I just received 25# of Red Fife wheat berries along with a lidded plastic bucket which I also purchased from Janie's. I have had time for only two bakes of sourdough bread but it was excellent (for me) and was the best I have done so far. The order arrived promptly (a surprise as I live on the west coast) and in good condition. The berries were of excellent quality and ground into a very fresh smelling flour. I am using a discontinued model of Magic Mill III electric and currently use the flour un-bolted. I have just ordered a #40 and #60 sieve and will try some brioche recipes after they arrive. Couldn't be happier with the order, the website information, and the final product.
To follow up with my last review, I was contacted by Jill Brockman-Cummings, Mill Manager, and she was wonderful in making sure I was completely satisfied with my order….problems happen, but nothing matches great customer service. This company is the best, and I will always use them for my wheat/grain orders in the future. Great selection of grains, fast service/delivery and Excellent customer service and attention. I cannot recommend this wonderful company highly enough!
