A friend visited the Gulch a few days ago while passing through, and came bearing gifts – among which was a quantity of ground wheat flour and another of wheat berries.
Which means I can go back to adulterating my white bread with some taste for a while.
One cup of wheat flour roughens the texture somewhat and improves the taste substantially in my opinion, without negatively affecting the rise the way trying to bake a whole wheat loaf can (and in my case, invariably does.)
A few years ago Landlady brought up a grain mill which allowed me to start using these two buckets of wheat berries that had been around here for going on fifteen years, and once I learned the proper proportions to use in the dough I really enjoyed the result – Until I ran out, and learned that the price of wheat berries is ridiculously out of my budget, and went back to eating white bread. Now thanks to my generous friend I can enjoy more tasty bread for a while.
