A little back story. For many years, I have used my Vita-Mix to grind flour. I’m generally happy with the quality of flour – because I grind for extra time so it isn’t too coarse — but what kills me is that I have to be right there, moving the tamper up and down for near half an hour to get the amount of flour I want. That’s why I was looking out for another solution.
Every package has a barcode — use your smartphone to scan the barcode to see the details about your product. They call this “identity preserved.”
My iPhone pulled up this Google map of the location where my berries were grown — between Spokane, Washington and Pullman, Washington. How cool is that? Of course, I’m not suggesting this as an alternative to really knowing your farmer — but isn’t it neat?
Another side note. Our free grain mills webinar on Friday kicks off two drawings for free grain mills. One of them is a Wondermill from Millers Grain House. The other is a Nutrimill from Amazing Graze Farm. Palouse Brand is adding three pounds of wheat berries to the Nutrimill package (and JoshEWEa’s Garden is adding two pounds of sprouted berries to the package, too).
Why is this important? Well, I really wanted to bake with Palouse Brand berries myself before offering them to you in the grain mill drawing, and with the arrival of the used Nutrimill and the berries, the timing couldn’t be better!
Then my daughter B. and I jumped right in. We filled the hopper. I love how you don’t have to count cups. Just fill it to the top and you know that you’ll get 20 cups of flour in the basin below.
Turn it on. It grinds in a matter of minutes, no hands-on required. It was also quieter than the Vita-Mix.
The flour turned out of a very nice quality. I was eager to see how it performed.
Fast forward to this morning: we’re having warm and crusty sourdough bread with breakfast. I could not be happier about the flour’s quality, taste and performance. I am thrilled with how the Nutrimill worked, too.
Don’t forget… if you’re not already signed up, please register now for the free grain mills webinar on Friday. You’ll get excellent, excellent information about grain mills, and we’ll also kick-off two free grain mill drawings. Attendees (live or at the replay) will get exclusive codes for the drawings and/or discounts. You don’t want to miss it!
Plus, you’ll take home a PDF booklet of all the information that I and Vickilynn Haycraft (product reviewer extraordinaire) will be sharing. See you then!
Do you have a Nutrimill? What do you think of it? Or, what is your favorite grain mill? Have you tried berries from Palouse Brand?
