Chef Tess 9 Grain Tortilla Mix
3 cups Mountain Mills Whole Wheat Flour
2 cups 9 grain flour (it can be made by running 9 grain mix through a grain mill on the finest flour setting)
1 cup organic Spectrum shortening OR powdered shortening
1 T baking powder
1T real salt
To make the mix: Combine dry ingredients. If you use the organic shortening, you need to cut it into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender or a stiff wire whisk until it's in small pea-like sized pieces.
Yields 2 mixes, 3 cups each. Each mix will make 8, 10 inch tortillas.
To Prepare: Bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Put tortilla mix in a heat-proof bowl and pour boiling water into dry mix. Stir with a spoon until well combined. Let dough sit 5 minutes and then knead by hand until supple (about 1 minute). You will not need flour on your counter top. Boiling the water will partially cook the starches and cause the dough to be more workable and is the most traditional method for making flour tortillas.
Preheat a griddle while you are rolling out the tortillas, about 3 minutes. Cook the tortillas on one side and then turn over.
Place in a covered pot or tortilla warmer to keep them moist an pliable.
