There's a Subscription For That is a new series spotlighting subscriptions the team at My Subscription Addiction finds interesting and is excited to share with readers.
Were you part of the pandemic bread-making craze? In the early days of 2020, many of us descended on the baking aisles of our local grocery stores to load up on flour and yeast. With plenty of time and lots of boredom, making our own bread seemed like a great way to keep our hands busy (and punch out our frustration on some dough).
If the habit stuck, you've probably picked up some great techniques and delicious recipes, but there's another way to take your break-making to the next level: up your flour game.
Janie's Mill specializes in stone-milling, and they use time-tested techniques to produce flour with great taste and high nutritional content. Whether you're making pizza, artisan loaves, or cookies, choosing the right flour can affect the flavor and texture of what comes out of your oven. At Janie's Mill, grains are gently crushed at cold temperatures to retain nutrients in the bran and germ. This results in tastier products that will boost the quality of all kinds of baked goods.
Flours are milled in rural East-Central Illinois, and the grain doesn't have to travel very far. Janie's Mill works with its sister property, Janie's Farm, to raise hybrid and heritage crops like corn, soybean, wheat, rye, oats, buckwheat, and more. The farm supplies large and small companies, brewers, and distillers, and it also delivers freshly harvested grains to the mill.
Janie's Mill's flours are available via subscription, and there are a number of different products to suit lots of different kinds of baking. If you enjoy making European-style breads and pastries, the Serious Bread Baker Sampler Subscription delivers three different flours that are perfect for making baguettes, boules, focaccia, and sourdough. Love to make pizza? The Italian-Style Pizza Flour Subscription delivers regular shipments of a flour blend that's pizza-maker-approved. There are also subscriptions available for cake flour, all-purpose flour, cornmeal, and more.
