Sprouted Wheat

This past Monday we launched our homemade breads using sprouted wheat! The process takes a bit of time, but the nutritional benefits are worth it! We buy the wheat berries in bulk and soak them for up to 3 days. Once the wheat has sprouted, the berries are dried overnight in a dehydrator. We then grind the wheat into our whole wheat flour. This week we made Sprouted Whole Wheat Bread, Sprouted Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin Bread, and Sprouted Whole Wheat Basil Bread. We also made two types of loaves with white flour: Our over-night Artisan bread and Sourdough Bread. Both of these loaves are crusty on the outside, soft on the inside and perfect for breakfast toast with butter, lunch sandwiches, or dinner garlic bread! We hope you'll make us your weekly bread supplier!

Attached is an article from LIVESTONG.COM with many of the benefits sprouted whole wheat brings to our diet!
