Not too long ago I was given a wonderful gift of two different types of grain mills. The first is an electric Wonder Mill.
Actually I've wanted one of these for a long time, but I have my Country Living manual grain mill and couldn't justify buying another, even though it takes 20 minutes to grind enough by hand for a loaf of bread. I have to admit that I sometimes feel pressed for time when it came to making flour. Worse, I would end up buying whole wheat flour to have on hand, just in case I didn't get any grain ground.
The Wonder Mill is a wonderful time saver, plus, it makes beautiful whole grain flour including a fine corn meal.
I'm delighted to have this mill as well as the manual back-up!
The other mill is a Marga Mulino.
It is a hand crank mill which can make flour, but it can also flake grains for cereal! That has been something else on my wish list.
The knob has three settings. One for flour, one for flaking grains...
and one for finer than flakes from harder grains like oats.
This means I can make my own fresh oatmeal and granola!
For these I must express my most heartfelt thanks to Ashley for her generous gifts. They are a blessing indeed.
