Simply Resourceful

Simple ways to be more conscious about how we use our resources.

Valentine's Day Grain Mill Gift!

What says, "I love you" more than a grain mill?  This Valentine's Day the boys gifted me this awesome GrainMaker grain mill.  We just love homemade bread, noodles, hot cereals, and baked goods.  Grinding our own flour is the next step in having more whole grains in our diet.

Straight out of the box we couldn't resist grinding a cup of flour.  Paul was thrilled to pour in the wheat berries and turn the big "pirate wheel." 

We have the GrainMaker Grain Mill Model No. 99 which can grind grain, seeds, legumes, and nuts.

All I have to say is that we are impressed with our american made grain mill built in Montana.

Bob ( of the Red Mill) would be proud! I love the pirate wheel description. :)

You are right, Bob would be proud. I wish there was a distribution center on the east coast to decrease the shipping costs. I didn't realize how privileged we were living only 20 miles from Bob's Red Mill headquarters a few years ago. Nothing can compare to Bob's products!
