Einkorn flour trial #1

Has anyone tried Einkorn flour lately? I tried just the other night for the first time – buttermilk biscuits –

I had actually purchased this bag way back in December – I haven’t been able to bring myself to use it because this little 2 lb bag was about $9.00! From Amazon – but since then I’ve found other resources –

I started researching Einkorn when I went gluten free way back in November. It’s the “original ancient grain”, completely unmodified by humans in any way. At least that’s my understanding –

Since going completely gluten free in November, I’ve stuck with going about 90% gluten free for the past 4 months. I’m not allergic nor do I have celiac but I do find I’m less tired than I am when I eat a lot of wheat. I can also tighten my belt one more notch:) But I think that’s because going gluten free also means cutting out all of the junk food that goes along with it:)

I made buttermilk biscuits to go along with my sausage, egg casserole for dinner. The flour is lovely and light. Not a total bleached white like “normal” flour and it handles just like a regular wheat flour. If a bit more finely ground –

The family couldn’t taste a difference and the only difference I could SEE was that the biscuits weren’t bleach white –

I thought the biscuits were delicious and had a wonderful flavor to them. Not quite “white flour” flavor 🙂 It’s hard to describe.

LOL!  I need to try another recipe now that I’ve worked up the courage to open that little bag of flour… What to make next?

Einkorn Brioche and Chia Seed Jam

This recipe looks delicious!

Bright Blessings!
