Searching for flour - found it

For more than 30 years I have made all our bread products and have been having a challenge finding ANY type of flour.

Happily I found a resource and ordered a 50-pound bag of bread flour today. I usually buy my bread flour at Sams in 25-pound bags.

Never mind.

No flour is available in my area right now and I am thankful I can get what I need. I just received an email telling me my flour is on its way.

If you are interested, you can check out this link look at this . Got it.

How are you storing your flour? Curious about other people storage techniques.

I’m fortunate that I bought a bunch of 5lb KA flour at Chrístmas time when it is on sale.

I was actually thinking the same thing.

For flours that I will be using regularly and soon, I store them in canisters on the kitchen counter. For flours that I won't be using soon or that I don't use often, I store them in the freezer.

I dont use enough flour to purchase 50# bags but I usually have a few 5# bags in reserve. I put them in one of the large seal a meal bags, seal them then store them in a cool spot in my basement. The flours that I use routinely and that are opened are stored in huge tupperware bins I got ages ago. Small bags of specialty flours get stored in the resealable sealameal bage and put into the freezer.

Since I make all our bread products, I go through flour pretty fast. 25 pounds doesn't last very long. As for storing I have several HUGE Tupperware bins that I store the flour in. Otherwise, in the freezer.

Do you have to be a Republican to order from them?

Guess I'm blind. I only noticed the General Mills logo. I don't care what party the flour belongs to, I'm just super happy to have found it. LOL
