|so i ground some wheat berries into flour.|
the focus isn't quite where it should be, but of course i didn't see that until the flour had already been baked into yummy bread.
and wow, what a difference fresh flour makes. i don't usually much care for whole wheat breads, but this one was GOOD.
grinding 3 cups of wheat berries by hand into reasonably fine flour is quite the workout; i didn't do it in one stretch, but took breaks in between. if i continue with the physical labour in garden and house as i've started this year, soon i will have actual muscles.
the new grain mill (wonder mill junior) is excellent. i've wanted one for years, but could never see spending the money. however, this wasn't hideously expensive. i'll write a review as soon as i've tried grinding more things -- it has stones for dry goods, and steel burrs for oily ones.
