It's been way too long since I've posted. I've been trying to prepare for Christmas and I finally learned how to crochet correctly, so instead of being on the computer at night, I usually have yarn in my hands.
One of the things I've been experimenting with lately is milling my own flour from wheat berries. Two summers ago, I was VERY lucky to find a Nutrimill at a thrift store for $7. Truthfully, I didn't even know for sure at the time that it was a grinder, but knowing how expensive they were, I was willing to take the chance. And I'm glad I did! They are $259 new!
Unfortunately, most of the recipes for wheat bread call for half white flour, and I didn't want to have to use it. So I decided to buy the book "No More Bricks" by Lori Viets, which is a great one for beginner grinders like me. There are only like 4 basic recipes in the book, but it teaches you all sorts of ways to use them, along with discussing the different types of grinders and grains. I have been extremely happy with the bread I've been baking, and even happier that there is no white flour in the loaves.
On a recent trip to the local Amish Bulk Store (it's kind of new, and I
was thrilled to discover it!) I bought a package of 7 grain berries, excited
about the possibility of turning it into bread. Normally, I don't pay that much for wheat berries, but normally, I buy in 25 or 50 lbs quantities!
