    Hi, Order this bread without realising that it needed to be mixed with other flour. Does anyone have a reliable recipe for a bread maker please. Thanks in advance

    Well, I felt a bit of a dare devil when ordering dark rye from you! I’ve always enjoyed the taste of rye bread when abroad but thought it was going to prove too difficult for me to work with – in the past I have produced some poor quality loaves which have been like cannon balls. Not so with Matthews Rye, which produces wonderful bread when mixed with strong white or 8 grain. I want to have all your flours and feel compelled to be baking ALL the time! I limit myself to a loaf a day. So many flours, so little time! Thank you for your beautiful products and efficient service.

    Used for my favourite bread recipe which uses a mix of white bread flour, this dark rye flour and caraway seeds. The taste is like a sour dough bread but without the need for the usual starter. Taste was superb!

    IT was your dark rye flour that lead me to discover FWP Mattews in the first place. It was so extraordinarily beautiful tasting when I used it in my bread making that I started using it in a mix with your Churchill White for scones, pancakes and pastry. I have never had a failure and feel it makes an average baker appear very accomplished! Most recently I have been tackling sour dough baking and again I feel much of my success depends on the very high quality of this particular product! Also thank you to all of the FWP team who have been patient, polite and have unstintingly gone the extra mile over the past few difficult months. Many, many thanks from myself and my sister with whom I share all my purchases (she is also a fan!)

    Makes a great, tasty, loaf. So glad, during lockdown, I have started making sourdough bread with flour from this mill. Thank you.

    State of the art packaging ! And an excellently robust and tasty rye flour, Having abandoned my bread making machine a few years ago ( and now a convert to the electric fan oven ) I’m indulging my creativity with a variety of rye inventions !

    I was so happy to receive my delivery of rye flour…my rye starter was looking a little hungry! Lovely flour that makes a fantastic. tasty dark rye loaf and also brilliant in recipes that use a mix of rye and other flours.
