Flour



Flour for 7

One of the good things about having a large family (there’s seven of us two thirds of the time) is that you can sometimes buy products in quantities that average families can only dream about.

For instance, I recently noticed that Shipton Mill had some really interesting types of flour for sale (e.g., Khorason and Swiss flour). Normal consumers might find the £5 shipping charge too high for a couple of bags of flour, though.

However, delivery is free if you order 24 kg or more, and we can eat our way through that amount in just a couple of months, so that was £5 saved. 🙂

It seems to be an extremely efficient web shop, by the way – I had 26 kg of flour delivered exactly 25 hours after ordering it.

  1. Uhm, det ser dejligt ud – og så kan I jo også bage rugbrød, kan jeg se ,-)

    Maler de på sten- eller stålkværn? Sten-malet mel er afgjort det lækreste. Herhjemme får vi hvede og rug fra Søris – noget mørkere hvedemel end det traditionelle.

  2. Nogle enkelte af deres meltyper er malet på sten, men de fleste er vist ikke.
    Og rugbrødet er bare fra en dansk pose rugbrødsmix – det er lidt nemmere! 🙂
