Making my own flour from whole wheat berries was an eye-opener for me about seven years ago. I had been bitten by the bread-baking bug, and was using high-quality store bought whole wheat flour in my recipes. When some friends turned me on to the idea of grinding my own grains, it took me a few minutes to get over the fact that they sounded like fringe health-nut purists at first. But as the idea sank in, the whole thing began to make a lot of sense. 

The taste and nutritional value of whole grains is indescribably superior to stale, processed, store-bought grain products. Even the "100% whole wheat flour" you see in stores has had much of the oil and germ removed to preserve shelf life, since grains begin to oxidize and go bad the minute you open them. Many people find their food sensitivities go away when they stop using prepared flour and instead mill their own whole, live grains. Plus, whole grains are affordable, they stay fresh indefinitely, and there is virtually no maintenance or clean-up with a grain mill. It's even easier and less messy than grinding your own coffee beans.

Can you tell I'm a zealot about this? My grain mill has been my constant companion for seven years now. It's paved the way to a whole new way of thinking about food, cooking, and the adventurous world of DIY. Our family uses our mill on a daily basis for everything from oatmeal to cornbread to tortillas to granola bars to birthday cakes. Want to see one in action? Come get a demo at the shop!

Meantime, here's a look at how to grind grains, and why you should consider doing it in the first place:

I love oats, it is good for the skin and great source of fiber. Older people love this food because it is very easy to eat and convenient to cook and even the babies, I remember that my cousin loves to eat this because you just need hot water for it to be cooked and that is very simple and the oats are just that important in our body as well, I will spread this news.
