I kind of like saying that I'm a shareholder, but really I'm just a regular ol' member of the CSA Urban Grains.
Which means in July, I paid some local grain farmers. And in October, I went to pick up four 5kg bags of their organic whole wheat flour that had been milled just days before.
Now I'm coming to terms with the fact that quality ingredients really do make a difference. First dairy, now flour... what's next, will I be springing for high-end table salt?
But we enjoy a whole lot of bread around here. And since my weekly batch of bread has never tasted so good, or had such killer consistency, I'll be ponying up the cash again next summer.
