    Hi- I love King Arthur's white whole wheat and whole wheat flour. Jewel quit carrying both of them last year, although the Kosher Jewel on Howard still carries both kinds of flour for $6.99 which is more than I am willing to pay. Walmart does not carry either one of them any more, and the last time I was at Target they had the white whole wheat but not the whole wheat flour.

    I was in Whole Foods in downtown Evanston yesterday to see if by some chance they had them on sale. I am out of the whole wheat flour, and when I looked at the flour section, I did not see King Arthur whole wheat flour, but saw the white whole wheat on clearance for $3.99. Somebody stocking shelves there asked me if I needed any help. I told him I was looking for the King Arthur ww flour. He said that they were discontinuing a lot of the King Arthur flour and putting them on clearance. Apparently the whole wheat flour sold out, and they are not restocking it. I ended up getting a bag of the white whole wheat flour, and a small amount of organic whole wheat flour in bulk for $1.69 a pound. They still had two pound bags of organic King Arthur whole wheat flour for $6.99, which I passed on. I did not even see any Arrowhead Mills WW flour. All I saw was their store brand in five pound bags.

    Where does any one else get their King Arthur flour? Does Mariano's still have the whole wheat flour? I am going to Michigan this weekend for a family reunion, and if I have the time, I might stop in at Meijer's in Benton Harbor. They always have it, and it is always under $4 a bag

    BTW- For those people who have a Prime membership, I noticed that WF had their rotisserie chicken on sale for $5.99. I think their rotisserie chicken is way better than Jewel's. Thanks, Nancy

    I order a lot because I bake a bit.

    King Arthur has a product finder on their website. Just make sure you have the whole wheat flour selected.

    Thanks for the link to the product finder. It looks like Target carries the white whole wheat, but not the whole wheat, and Walmart carries the whole wheat and not the white whole wheat. The last time I was in the Skokie Walmart store, they did not have either one. It sounds like I should start buying it at Mariano's or hit Meijer's when I go home to Michigan. A few of the Jewel stores still carry it, but neither one that I visit on a regular basis. I don't know if this is because people don't cook. I was told a few years ago that the white whole wheat was a good seller at WF, and so I was surprised when they told me yesterday they were discontinuing it. I have only been in Heinen's once. It was okay, but it is expensive, and it is not convenient for me. Valli used to carry it too, but I did not see it on their list of stores.

    I went home to a family reunion in Michigan last weekend, and on the way back to Chicago on Sunday, I made a really quick trip to the Benton Harbor Meijer's. I got a bag of King Arthur WW flour for $3.49, and that was their regular price.

    Has anybody seen their new three pound bags on their website or in any of the grocery stores? The last time I was in Jewel last Friday, they were out of KA flour again, and they did not have any bread flour, although they had cerresota which is passable. They did have yeast though.

    I must have been lucky--I got on their alert list months ago, and as soon as the new 3# bags of AP were available, they emailed me. I bought 6!!

    Some of our local village supers here in the North Country still have the 5# bags of bread flour so I consider myself lucky, even tho' I have to buy them one at a time.

    I have definitely seen the large bags, 6# perhaps of KAF AP at Costco this summer in the South Loop location.

    I purchased 5# of KA bread flour for $5.99 at the local Kroger affiliate. It is something that I would not have purchased at the store but the DW ...

    Yep. I knew it was larger but couldn't recall how much. And that makes sense b/c the price was pretty much the same as 5#of KAF AP in the grocer.

    I have a lot of whole wheat flour to use.

    This loaf of 100% wild-yeasted Honey Whole Wheat was good, and very easy. Mix before bed. Shape and bake the next day.

    Very good for those short on time.

    Pairs--do you do a lot of bread baking? I've cooked for decades, but didn't bake my first loaf of bread until 2 months ago: Pandemic exercise, I guess! : ) I happened across Kenji/Serious Eats' no-knead and have, after a dozen times, mastered it. I use his recipe exactly, except I use half/half KA AP+Bread. I adjust the second half-hour bake to the colour of the loaf when I take the lid off.

    Like you, I mix the night before, and commence first thing in the morning.

    I'd like to take advantage of your expertise and ask you if you know any semi-foolproof beginner's baguette method? Now that I've got a rustic bread down, all's I need is a baguette to keep me happy!

    TIA!

    Look and see if Raffa has a baguette recipe, otherwise best explanations tend to come from America's Test Kitchen/Cook's Illustrated in my opinion.

    I bake a bit of bread, but primarily they are either wild-yeasted or biscuits.

    Hi,

    At Mariano's today, they had two five-pound bags of King Arthur AP flour for $5. I did not visit the flour aisle to see if this sale extended to other flour varieties.
