Back in November I posted some things that were on my Christmas list; and I am so thrilled to say my husband bought me a WonderMill Grain Mill! I had been using my manual Victorio hand-mill (yep, turning by hand... literally) but once I knew I really liked the idea of buying and grinding my own wheat berries, I was ready to jump in with both feet and invest in a WonderMill.
The week after Christmas have 2 daughters (and 1 Dad and 1 sister-in-laws) birthdays so in addition a month of celebration eating with Thanksgiving and Christmas foods, we then have birthday cakes and birthday meals. Needless to say, we went into 'detox mode' of all that holiday eating and went back to eating sugar free and low carb for a bit. Now that it's been a month and we are back on track from all that holiday merry-making, guest entertaining and food, food, food and uh, more food... I was dying to make homemade breads and buns again.
Not only does homemade taste better... but this way I have the option of healthy, non-genetically modified wheat, natural ingredients, no chemicals and crazy as it may sound to some, I have bloating and gas with store bought breads but experience none of that with homemade breads!
I am THRILLED to say I love (love love love) the WonderMill. I had bought a 3 pk of non-GMO wheat berries from Amazon (red hard, white hard and soft white berries) to try all three of this brand - and make my own flour blend mixture. (Non-GMO Project Verified Soft White, Hard White, and Hard Red Spring Wheat Berries (15 total LBS) | 100% USA Grown | Identity Preserved (We Tell You Which Field We Grew It In))
- The World's Cleanest, Quietest, Easy To Use Mill

- Maintenance and trouble free design - no gumming, jamming or glazing
- 12-cup capacity flour receiver doubles as a convenient storage canister

To make a loaf of bread previously,
it took about 45 minutes of cranking the Victorio hand-crank (off and on - my arms got tired)
to get enough flour ground.
With the WonderMill I had my flour ready in about 1 minute.
