Product Description

    Details

    Lammas Fayre blends from John Letts are authentic recreations of flour contemporary with various periods of British history. Over many years of careful research, John has been able to locate extremely rare samples of the various cereals and then to grow them organically in sufficient quantity for us to be able to offer them to you. Several of the blends are only available in small quantities. Others are more plentiful: if you are interested in larger packs of any of the blends, please let us know.

    Emmer wheat (Triticum dicoccum) was domesticated from a wild grass in the Ancient Near East over 9,000 years ago, and spread to Britain over 4,000 years ago where it became the principal bread corn of Bronze Age farmers. Our flour is produced from a genetically mixed population of emmer varieties grown organically at Collings Hanger Farm in the village of Prestwood in Buckinghamshire. The large, plump grains are dehulled, stoneground and sieved to produce a delicious, cream coloured flour ideal for flat breads, pasta, biscuits and artisan-style bread.

    Usage: flours from ancient rather than modern varieties of grain can be more challenging to the baker since they tend to have lower protein levels. If you want the authentic experience of a heritage loaf then you may choose to make your bread from 100% of this flour. However, for a lighter loaf with the heritage flavour, we have found that using 50% Lammas Fayre and 50% strong white is a good starting point, giving enough strength for a free-form loaf. As you increase the proportion of Lammas Fayre flour, you may find that giving your dough extra support in a tin is helpful.

    About Lammas Fayre Flours: Lammas Fayre is a very small-scale artisan operation and consequently the stock and re-stocking can be a little variable. Our advice is simple - if you see it in stock then place your order: many lines are only available in very limited quantities.

    Note: Bronze Age Blend Emmer Wheat Flour is about to go out of stock and will remain so until autumn 2015.
