Rye and Buckwheat
For so many years, white flour has been the go-to ingredient in North American baked goods. And yet, we grow such an amazing variety of grains on the prairies! I’m delighted to see local bakers moving beyond making bread with a variety of grains to also selling sweet treats made from different local flours.

I highly recommend Earth Bound Bakery’s Buckwheat Cinnamon Buns and The Night Oven’s Salted Chocolate Rye Cookies. The grains provide a depth of flavour that’s missing in white flour products.

Flavourful Saskatoon is a weekly Monday feature. I also post articles about food that is good, clean and fair; travel; and books. You may also enjoy EcoFriendly Sask profiling Saskatchewan environmental initiatives and events.
