Kamut - Khorasan Wheat Flour
 
Anyone used this?

Good, bad or indifferent?

Bought some in the health food shop.

I have never used the flour, but we buy kamut bread every once in a while. It tastes pretty much like any other whole grain bread. But, it is more likely for the slices to break than with wheat bread.

Thanks Taxi. I bought it in the heat of the moment and then things got in the way and I shoved it in the freezer until "I got a round tuit". Found it this morning and remembered I'd asked on DC so came to look.

I'm not a very good wholegrain bread maker and usually include a little unbleached white flour to stabilise it, so I might experiment a bit with the kamut flour.

Good luck with the bread. Adding a bit of unbleached, white flour is probably a good idea. My problem with baking whole grain breads is that they don't rise enough. I solve that by using more yeast.
