But humor me for one minute. When you stop and think about it, how is milling grains any weirder than grinding your own coffee beans? Lots of us do that. And this is pretty much the same thing-- but even MORE crucial for flavor and freshness. It only takes a few seconds to make your own wholesome flour, and you get countless nutritional benefits, terrific taste, and NONE of the bitter flavor we often associate with whole wheat.
Today, I made the kids' favorite: Dutch-style breakfast crepes, using my Mom's recipe. I modified it for whole grains, and it tastes great. Less than 30 minutes from wheat berries to the breakfast table. Makes me so happy to see my kids enjoying good, simple food. So basic, only a few key ingredients. Give it a shot!
And of course, a giant thank-you to Jason and Karyn, for turning me on to cooking with whole grains in the first place.
