Jan,King Arthur's Harvest Grains Blend isn't actually flour, per se - I would called it an "add in." It's a mix of whole oat berries, millet, rye flakes and wheat flakes enhance, flax, poppy, sesame, and sunflower seeds.

In the bread recipe that comes with the package it calls for adding just 2/3 of a cup, along with all the other ingredients. It's not a stand alone product. The packaging states that there's enough product for about 9 loaves of bread.

I hope your bread is great - that is a pretty expensive flour, but it sounds good. I have been happy with most King Arthur products, but I find I still need to use about 1/3 white flour along with whole grain in order to get the bread to raise ok (even with added gluten). I never have tried a grain blend, just tend to add extra grains to the whole wheat flout (oats, millet, etc).

I just ordered a 25 # bag of whole wheat berries and am going to grind my own flour. Tried it about a year ago and loved the results, but the bread really does need to be used quickly.

I'm trying a King Arthur product that is new to me - Harvest Grain Blend www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/harvest
-grains-blend-2-lb
. It comes with a recipe to make bread; my very first batch is rising right now.


This is a pretty costly product - $11.95/2 lbs, plus I can only get it by mail order. I don't mind having to send away for it, but the final cost is going to mean that I can't purchase as often as I would like.


I'd like to hear from folks here, who bake bread, if they have any suggestion on an add-in product that is similar to King Arthur's Harvest Grain Blend, but that cost less than $6 lb:(
