Week 6

I think Red Fife has a sweet, nutty flavor. It’s also described as spicy and toasty. I’ve used Red Fife in bread, biscuits, muffins, and pancakes thus far, but it’s also used in pasta and brewed as a beer. You can find recipes for it in cookies, pastries, cakes, cereals, pizza dough, and crackers as well. As with most wheat flours, you can experiment with your existing recipes to see how Red Fife can be incorporated. Try swapping it out for 25-50% of the all-purpose flour in a recipe. While Red Fife is not as “thirsty” as some wheat flours, you may still need to incorporate a little more liquid to your recipe, depending upon what you’re making.
