What's cracked wheat? Well, it's simply wheat kernels that we've cracked with our crimping machine.
Both the cracked wheat and the flour in this bread are made with a variety called Expedition, a hard red winter wheat that we grow on our farm. When we're milling the flour for this bread, we sifts out about 30% of the bran—just enough to lighten it up a bit.
A pre-fermented dough gives this bread its rising power and flavor. A third of the flour in this bread is made into a pre-fermented dough, giving the enzymes a head start and leading to a mildly sweet, malty flavor in the finished product.
The sweetness in this bread also comes from a small dose of local honey (and the care that we put into farming and baking). All in all, our Cracked Wheat bread is packed with local ingredients, flavor, and nutrition!
