Different Grains differ in use – even wheat types
Well, it doesnt take a rocket scientist to realize that you cant make wheat bread out of corn meal. But it can be confusing to know just what type of grains work best for what type of recipe. I hope these tips will help you to begin sorting out some differences among grains - even among types of wheat.
Freshly ground whole wheat is wonderful! But not all recipes work the same with one type of wheat. A brief list of wheat types and food types is:
Other grains may make a light flour but lack the gluten to make a loaf and must either be inundated with gluten or used in other recipes suck as batter breads.
We have many recipes coming to our site and in our upcoming cook book that I have developed and learned by trial and error just how to use some of the varieties of wheat and other freshly milled grains. It is my hope that my blunders and failed experiments will help other find the adventure in trying many different grains and recipes!
