Fresh Ground Flour and Home Milling

Fresh Hard Red Spring Wheat Berries

I have two home mills, the Blendtec Kitchen Mill and the Mockmill, well maybe three if you count the cheapo coffee grinder I used in the past before I got the Mockmill.

The Blendtec Kitchen Mill has been a mainstay in my kitchen for years. I’m actually on my second one as the first one ended up with a cracked housing (it was old, I bought it used on Ebay, years ago). I like that this mill will grind fine flour fast and in a large quantity (well large for the home baker). However, that’s pretty much all it will do, just flour. It will do a variation of super fine flour to less fine flour. It won’t grind cracked meal, bulgher, coarse meal etc. One of the cons is that it is veryContinue reading

My Favorite Baking Equipment – Gotta – Wanna –

Brod and Taylor Proofer

I am often asked where I get this piece of baking equipment or that one. I have done a few posts on singular items but no posts on an inclusive list of baking equipment I use or want to use. 🙂

These are mostly Amazon links and I am an affiliate. It won’t cost you anymore to use my links, but it will help me out. Also, if you pull any live link to your desktop and use it as an entry portal every time you use Amazon, I will be credited a small amount and lots of small amounts adds up to large amounts and then I can get my kids bigger clothes (they don’t seem to stop eating) 😉

So here goes:Continue reading

I am Wyllis Greenway, Teresa’s son. I originally designed these lames because I love to work with wood. Most bread slashers you could get were either made of plastic or metal. I thought that a lame should invite the same sense of warmth and character into a kitchen that a loaf of freshly baked bread does, which is why I decided to use richly colored woods and compliment them with shimmery brass hardware.Continue reading
