Honey Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread Loaf

First time using 100% UNSIFTED Freshly Milled Whole Wheat Flour, using our Wonder Mill….. and Whole Hard White Wheat Berries. The taste and beautiful texture is unlike ANY store bought OR homemade bread using all-purpose processed flour. Rich, soft, spongy and slightly sweet. It is incredible!
