It’s a well known fact that bread you buy on store shelves has chemicals and preservatives to keep them shelf stable. Another thing a lot of commercial flours have is bleach. This is used to keep molding at bay on the wheat berries. In today’s world, people are wanting something more healthy with less processing and thanks to a genius invention called the Mockmill grain mill attachment for KitchenAid stand mixers, you can grind your own flours. Wheat, rice, you name it. Even cornmeal! Basically, it has two stones that rub together to grind,
Having a KitchenAid stand mixer for years, I jumped at the chance to review the Mockmill for it, and I have a another HUGE reason to grind my own flour… My mother-in-law can’t have gluten. she has not been diagnosed with Celiac but her stomach can’t tolerate it so she bakes with rice and almond flour. I knew the first thing I would grind would be rice flour for her!
One of the best things about this grinder is the ability to choose the size from coarse to nearly powder fine. Coarse for things like cornmeal and fine for flours. Also, because it is compact it doesn’t take up a lt of room in the attachment drawer, and it has super easy clean up, you simply take it apart and use a brush to get the particles out, that is it.
Now that I have started grinding my own flours I am looking to get some wheat grains to come up with my own pastry flour. They sell wheat berries on amazon, heck they pretty much sell any grain you want including oat and bulgar. I don’t have a whole foods place near me to buy the grains so I will be ordering. Basically the grinder doubles what you put in, so if you put 2 cups of wheat berries through the grinder, you can expect 4 cups of flour. If you bake a lot, this won’t be a problem but know that making a lot of flour without preservatives can lead to mold later if you don’t store it. I store it in the freezer 🙂
