Grind Your Own Whole Grain Flour


Loretta SorensenNow that you have the list of tools, details about the method and the bread recipe, you're all set to bake some of your best bread ever! And if you'd like to go a step further, you can try your hand at grinding your own grain, right in your kitchen!

This has been a goal of mine for a long time. At the beginning, I envisioned a large grain mill that I had to somehow squeeze into my back room because it would take up so much room.

I also stressed about how I would ever afford a top notch grain mill. They cost several hundred dollars.

Much to my surprise I found that I already owned an appliance that would grind my grain beautifully: my Vitamix blender. From the research that I've done, not just any blender will grind wheat berries in a satisfactory manner. It will have to be a high speed appliance.

If you own a major stand mixer (i.e. Kitchenaide), you could likely purchase a grain mill attachment. Check out all your options, but know for sure that you don't have to own a $500+ grain mill to grind your own grains.

There are numerous options for obtaining wheat berries (including growing your own). A search for wheat berries will give you plenty of options.
