Bread flours...?

megajas(z7 VA)August 6, 2007

Ok, I have a question ... I know some of you grind your own flour to bake with ... but which grains do you use and in what proportions? And 2nd question... if a recipe calls for "all purpose flour" how do I use home ground flour in that recipe?



Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I buy hard spring wheat for bread (highest protein/gluten), hard winter wheat for all purpose, and soft spring wheat for pastry. But if you are making a yeast bread recipe that calls for AP flour, you can go ahead and use bread flour, and if you are making a pie crust recipe that calls for AP, you can go ahead and make it with pastry flour. AP is just a compromise flour.
