Swiss Dark Flour (409)
I first discovered Swiss Dark Flour when visiting the small alpine village of Saas Fee. To find out how the bakers made such delicious breads, I...
...visited the family mill at Brig where Mr Augsberger, whose family had been milling the flour for three generations, patiently taught us how to produce flour Swiss style! We are still learning. But in Switzerland wheat is still grown on the high alpine terraces and harvested by hand, then delivered to the mill in parcels as small as 500 kilos!
If you are looking for a 'First Clear' type flour commonly sold in North America for New York Style Rye Breads this is closest we have available in the UK.
Swiss Dark is technically a brown wheat flour, although essentially it's a white flour with a little bit of brown left in, colloquially known as a 'specky' flour. The Swiss term can be misleading so please don't mistakenly expect literally a dark brown flour as it is actually nearer a white flour in colour.
