We are the PROUD owners of a Wonder Mill Junior Handmill! Eeek!
We have been interested in grinding our own wheat for some time now, but never really got around to buying a mill. Thanks to my friend, Kate, over at Venison For Dinner, I found out about the Wonder Mill company, and their amazing Handmills.
I seriously can’t believe I have been buying wheat flour all this time. Grinding your own is so much more satisfying. And is just plain amazing, too!
The whole family enjoyed our wheat grinding process:
We were impressed at how soft the flour was, and after running it through twice, it made my other pastry flours seem coarse in comparison.
Before and after:
You can do homemade nut butters, too! Can’t wait to try it out.
Part of my assignment, was to share a recipe we used the wheat in. Because we used a, run through once, batch of fresh ground wheat, I was afraid it’d make our Pizza Dough dry.
Boy, was I wrong! It was the best darn pizza crust we have ever made! All thanks to the Wondermill Junior and some locally grown wheat to grind.
Head on over to the Wonder Mill website for the recipe, and leave them some 4 little Ferguson’s love while you are there. I am so honored to be their guest blogger today! Look for a few more posts in the future over there…..
After all, I gotta earn my keep! 😉
If you would like to buy your own Wonder Mill, either electric or the crank one we got, go here.
