This is my dream bread! I’ve always wanted to mill my own flour and make bread truly from scratch. My daughter got me the flour mill for Christmas, and I finally got a bag of wheat berries. It was worth it! I spent some time reading books, blogs, and recipes, and watching videos, and then sat down and puzzled out a recipe for what I wanted to make. After a couple of tries, I think I perfected it. So even if you’re not milling your own flour, you should try out this bread recipe.
The stumbling block people run into with making recipes for home-milled flour is that it’s very thirsty and soaks up a lot of moisture, and if you don’t handle that, you can end up with some really dry bread. My recipe deals with that in several ways: by carefully balancing the flour, by adding moisturizing ingredients, by resting during the kneading, and by ripening overnight. I think you’ll love this bread!
