Our hard red wheat is known in some circles as the best wheat to have on hand. It has a low moisture content and a high protein content (14% or more) making it the best wheat to make bread with and other baked goods. Hard red wheat is great to eat as a nice hot cereal for the mornings. Just put it in your crock pot at night and a nice healthy cereal full of protein will be waiting for you the following morning. This is a great wheat to grind down into flour and use in your baking goods. It is also good for sprouting if you like to eat sprouts. This is a must have for your long term food storage needs!

WHOLE WHEAT BREAD
- 4 cups hot tap water
- 2 tablets Vitamin C-crushed
- ½ cup oil
- ½ cup honey
- 1 ½ tbs. salt
- ½ cup lecithin
- 10-12 cups whole-wheat flour
- 2 tbs. yeast
Grind 8-10 cups wheat. Using the hottest tap water measure and add crushed vitamin C. In the mixing bowl add the water to the oil, honey, and lecithin. Mix in 4 cups flour. Sprinkle yeast over top and let stand 5-6 minutes until bubbly. Add salt and 4-6 cups more flour and mix for 10-12 minutes. The dough should be smooth and elastic. The dough should pull away from sides of the bowl. Dough should be moist and may be sticky. Adding too much flour will cause dry cracking bread. *Dough is thoroughly developed when you can pull off a small piece and stretch it to form a paper-thin sheet.
Shape into loaves and place in well-greased bread pans. Let rise until double in size. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Temperatures and times will vary. Remove from pans and cool. Yields 5 medium loaves
