Grind Your Own
Not coffee beans ... but Wheat Grains to make your very own flour and bake bread 😀🎩
Flour is made from grains .... whether this is Wheat, Rye, Corn, Rice or even from Ancient grains, such as Spelt, Kamut, Emmer or Einkorn etc
Using either a dedicated Grain Mill or attachment (e.g. KitchenAid Grain Mill), you can grind the grains to whatever texture you require (coarse or fine) and control the amount of nutrients in the flour.
Each grain of wheat contains three elements: 1. Bran
2. Germ 3. Endosperm
The way in which wheat is milled determines which parts of the grain, remains in the flour and which are lost. Commercial 'roller-milling' crushes grains through a series of metal rollers and sieves - generally just leaving the endosperm remaining and very little if any, nutrients.
By contract, 'stone-ground flour' (crushed between two stones) is healthier because it retains all the natural vitamins and oils in the grain and nothing is thrown away.
Grinding or milling your own, lets you control exactly what is in the flour 😀
This 100% Wholemeal Sourdough, was baked using the freshly milled Wheat Grains and there is a very noticeable difference in the flavour!
