Making Flour from Mount Lassen Farms Wheat

Flour is made by grinding wheat in a wheat grinder.  Whole wheat flour can be substituted for flour in any of the recipes.  Wheat flour has a shorter shelf-life than white flour.  White flour from the store has many nutrients removed so it can be stored longer.

You can purchase wheat for sprouting, too! 
 - submitted by Nancy S                                 Print Recipe

Soak wheat in water for 8 to 12 hours.  Get a mayonnaise jar or mason jar, put drained and rinsed wheat in it, cover lid with nylon net or part of an old stocking, secure with a rubber band.  Twice a day, rinse (cover with cool water, swirl around, dump out). In 2 to 3 days, a small sprout will appear.  Refrigerate at this point.  Can eat raw, in salads, on sandwiches, or alone, or cook about 5 minutes, use in bread, or cook and eat plain or with rice.  Has a slightly sweet, nutty flavor.   
  Thanks for the tip, Nancy!

Whole Wheat Angel Food Cake                 Print Recipe

1 3/4 cups egg whites (about 12-14 large eggs) 
1/2 cup sifted cake flour 
1/2 cup Mount Lassen Farms whole wheat flour 
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, divided 
3/4 tsp. salt 
1 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar 
1 tsp. vanilla 
1/4 tsp. nutmeg 
In large bowl, let egg whites warm to room temperature, about 1 hour. 

Sift cake flour, whole wheat flour and 3/4 cup sugar together. Repeat process 3 times; set aside. 

Beat whites, salt and cream of tartar at high speed until soft peaks form. Add remaining 3/4 cup sugar, a tablespoon at a time, to egg white mixture, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until stiff peaks form. 

With rubber spatula, gently fold vanilla and nutmeg into white until combined. Sift a quarter of the flour mixture over the egg white. Gently fold in with 15 under-and-over strokes. Repeat, rotating bowl a quarter of a turn after each addition. After last addition, use 10-20 extra folding strokes. Flour mixture should be blended into egg whites. 

Spread batter into ungreased 9- or 10-inch tube pan. Cut through batter with spatula to release air bubbles. Bake in preheated 375 degrees F oven for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean. Invert pan over neck of bottle; let cool in pan completely. With spatula, carefully loosed cake from pan and remove. 

Serves 16.
