The past several months, I’ve been looking at grain mills and after much research, I’ve finally decided on the one that I will, most likely, purchase; The Country Living Grain Mill.
It’s made in the USA, and has a lifetime warranty. It’s not cheap, running over $400, but it will last a lifetime and from what I’ve read the customer service is superb. That’s definitely something I look for when purchasing a product. The big selling point for me is that it is manual, so even if we have no electricity. I already making my own flour, but on a much smaller scale and I don’t do it often… With this purchase it will completely eliminate my need to ever purchase store bought flour again.
I try to be as self-sustainable as possible, so naturally that applies to cooking also. While manually grinding my own grains and beans might take time, I don’t mind since it allows me to control a huge part of my food preparation. My arms will be even more toned than they are now and even if the electricity went out, I’d still be able to use my kitchen appliance. Just like my mortar and pestle. My favorite kitchen tools are manual. The reasoning behind that is blatantly obvious.
I most likely will make this purchase before the year ends. I must say, that I’m really looking forward to grinding my own corn meal and bean flours.
Of course, when I finally make the purchase. I’ll post a review here, and I’ll be sure to show some of the things I grind with my Country Living Grain Mill.
