TIPS TO REMEMBER WHEN USING FRESHLY GROUND GRAINS: #1

1. Rainy weather will have some effect on your bread rising.

Rain

The moisture gets trapped more easily in the wheat or grain that has just been ‘cracked’ by milling. It’s more susceptible to absorbing moisture than dead flour that has sat on a shelf for months. So you may need to slightly adjust the water amount in your recipe or add more gluten to the mix to get the bread to rise. I personally avoid bread on rainy days and focus on tortillas and other flat or quick breads.

EnJOY the journey!
Best Blessings!
