when buying in bulk is not cheap

February 26th, 2007 at 09:00 pm

We checked out the health food store, flour was 79cents a pound for whole wheat in bulk...and you had to put it in a plastic bag to take it home...somehow that doesn't sound 'organic'....... I can't recall the price of whole wheat at the former store though.

Also got yellow corn meal at 99cents a pound....that I am sure was cheaper at the food lion.

And saw MANY nuts and grains (saw quinona, I might try it, wonder if I spelled it right) most were well above the cost of white flour or nuts at BJs, though I am sure many were healthier.

Saw spelt flour, dying of curiosity what that is, and tasted three kinds of suckered into buying one for the party we went to that night!

    Spelt flour comes from a grain called spelt. It is a very good alternative to wheat flour and is particularly good in making muffins and sourdough bread. It still has gluten in it, so its not a substitute or anything for wheat.
