Tasty Bread from "Impossible" Wheat

But a Wegman’s store in upstate New York is using locally-grown organic flour from Frederick, an older variety of white wheat, in its house-baked flutes. And the flutes are now the most popular item in the bread aisle.

“Bakers love working with organic flour,” said Frederick producer Klaas Martens, a longtime organic grain farmer from Penn Yan, and OFRF board member. “Each variety has its own flavors and characteristics, just like wine grapes do.”
