How about simply less flour + more liquid?

You asked a question. I'm trying to give you a TNT solution that I know works based on my own experience (20+ years of bread baking).
Yes, Steve, I read the article. I just don't know, yet, where I can get that product here. You guys in the US have so many things available that are not readily (or even) available here. And that cross-border shopping thing, can be a real pain.

That was one of the things that came up when we went surfing for bread recipes on the 'Net using red fife flour. We are just looking for a wheat that grows here and is fairly hardy re: disease free, etc. And, one we can use for bread that the DH likes. I don't eat enough bread to give a ...

I looked up red fife and it's kinda low in gluten.

As far as getting vital gluten in Canada, I found this http://www.amazon.ca/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_...en%2Caps%2C208

A lot of health food stores carry Bob's Red Mill products.

Thanks, TL. I know a couple of places that aren't too far off the beaten path that carry Bob's Red Mill products. Remember, we don't go grocery shopping often except for dairy products since we grow most of what we eat. I do more grocery shopping when I visit you in Montreal than I do here!

You can buy vital wheat gluten on line from King Arthur flour. They ship to the great white north.

You can also order it from Amazon.ca and get it in 2 days if you have Amazon Prime.

I already gave her the link on Amazon.ca. We don't bother with Amazon Prime. The Canadian version only helps with shipping. No free TV, music, ebooks. You have to buy a lot from Amazon.ca before Prime is worth the $79/year.
