Grinding my own flour

I’ve been baking my bread for several years; after the pandemic, I increased that to baking bread several times weekly. Like many others, I had a lot of time on my hands while many of us were required to shelter in place. I’m happy that my bread-baking knowledge increased significantly because of this time, and I truly enjoyed the freshly baked bread’s welcoming smell to the home. Although I’d seriously considered purchasing a grain mill then, I didn’t. I still was unsure of what I truly wanted, and because of the pandemic, certain items like flour and products related to baking bread were hard to come by.

Years before, I was looking at Country Living and the Diamante grain mill. Reviewing my posts here on Celebrate Life, I first mentioned Country Living grain mill in 2013. That was almost ten years ago! I was planning to buy it then; however, I held off. I can sit on my wants for a long time.

Fast forward to today, a few hours ago, I purchased the Mock Mill Pro 200. Unlike the Country Living and the Diamante, which are manual, although both can have a motor added, the MockMill Pro 200 is electric. I must admit that I’m excited about grinding my grains and am especially looking forward to bringing ancient grains, quinoa, and sprouted grains that I can turn into freshly baked loaves of bread and pasta. I’m a member of a few breadmaking forums, and many who grind their flour talk about the freshness of the flour compared to flours purchased in the store, some of which have had chemicals added to them.

What will I make first? My daughter loves dinner rolls, and so that’s what it will be.
