Flour is made from hand-picked, wild foraged English Sweet Chestnuts that are collected from private organic farmland in rural Oxfordshire, they are then dried in our purpose build comercial dryer and shelled. They are then milled by hand 5x (decreasing grade) to a medium grain finish, direct into packaging.
Chestnut flour is a beautiful flour to work with, and lends its self to a variety of uses both sweet & savoury.
Great for bread & Biscuits (Please Note: Flour is made purely from sweet chestnuts and will not on its own make a bread loaf, needs to be mixed with bread flour).
