We took another trip into town to get supplies. This time we got wheat berries and oat groats. Both of which we can grind in our new grain mill. We decided to buy the Family Grain Mill from Pleasant Hill Grain Co. We ordered the combo which includes a base motor and a hand crank. The motor is on back order so we have been trying out the hand crank and it works great.
This is the grain mill.
We decided to also purchase the flaker attachment. We have oatmeal almost everyday and with the flaker we can flake or roll our own oats. They taste so much better when they are freshly rolled.
I had an empty instant oatmeal carton so I filled it with oat groats and used a rubber band to attach the label.
Whole Oat groats
I was quite impressed with the ease of use. I was able to flake this bowl of oats with no problem and I'm kind of a wimp :) I'm looking forward to trying the wheat berries next!
Thanks for stopping by,
