We just celebrated another Halloween; for some reason, a quiet Halloween for our neighborhood. Our tradition, however, of hanging out in our neighbor's front yard, around a raging fire, continued. There was a big pot of chili, plus my contribution of Pumpkin Bars.
Common Pumpkin Bars... with a unique difference. I have started using in my baking, organic, stone-ground, heritage flour from Sunrise Flour Mill in North Branch, Minnesota. I discovered them through the Mill City Market in Minneapolis where they sell their flour + additional products on Saturdays. The heritage grain is considered more digestible by many suffering from gluten intolerance. That would be my daughter. Whenever I know my daughter will be eating at our house, the Heritage Turkey Red Flour is used. And so far, so good! I'm thrilled that I can now make anything from yeast breads to cakes and cookies, tart crusts and pizza dough as I would normally do, knowing my daughter can be included in whatever we're eating.
TURKEY RED REFINED FLOUR... "This is a heritage grain which some people find more digestible. Most of the bran and germ are removed resulting in a spectacular white flour that is not bleach or bromated."
