Grinding Flour

Matt and I decided to give our grain mill a spin last night, and some amazing bread is in the process of being made!
Matt is showing off his speed here – although it is pretty easy to spin. The mechanism definitely does all the work of turning wheat grains into powdery flour, but it gets a little tiring turning the crank.
Here’s a view from the top: wheat on the left, and the bowl collecting the flour as it comes out of the mill.
And here’s the end result! A bowl of FRESH whole wheat flour 🙂

The bread turned out kind of crazy, but I think it might be because Matt braided it instead of just cramming it in a bread pan, and he says next time he will try blending in some other kind of flour. Now I kind of want to try grinding flour the next time I make muffins!
