    Hi there, This is my first visit here in yeeeears but I knew, if anyone would be able to help with this topic it would be you guys!

    So I’m a stockpiler, I use the method the LDS church uses with the foil pouches and oxygen absorbers. So anyway, I stored about a year’s worth of flour a few years ago, thinking it would last about 10 years. Because it’s organic and obviously not refined enough to store as well as white flour, it’s gone bitter and sour. 

    I have HEAPS of it. Other than feeling sick that I’ve wasted so much food and money.. (and no see the sense in storing grain and having a grinding machine!) I’m wondering what to do with it.         

    Is there a use for it??
    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like the oils have gone rancid

    Oh thanks Snags!!
    Because they were being packed in an anaerobic environment I chose flour that had less than 10% oil content. They should have been fine.. but… never mind! Thanks so much for the link – my kids are still young enough to give away home made dough presents for christmas!! haha

    phew!
