A few weeks ago, I posted a video of my son and I grinding our own flour with our Kitchenaid stand mixer. I got a lot of questions about how and why I do this rather than just buying flour.
For us it all started last May when my husband gave me this article from the Wall Street Journal. The article addressed the need for healthier wheat processing and bread production in the US as a way to change the conversation about gluten in the American diet. In summary: commercially processed white flour is bad, small batch, fresh whole wheat flour is good.
And because we are who we are, we decided that we would become people who grind their own flour. Here is how we did it.
