Ground your own flour from grains?


is it worth it by the time you buy the mill and buy or grow the grains?

I was tempted at one time.  I was the accountant for the 3 Pillsbury/ADM milling flour mills in Minniapolis.  So, I had access to all the wheat grain I could ever want.  But, I was newly divorced and didn't have it in my budget to by a grain mill.  Here's one on Amazon that I found.  Grain mill.

My cousin does it.  She gets the 50 pound bags of grain from a food co-op or something like that.  She grinds spelt and millet for the most part with a hand grinder.

I looked into it a few years ago but then we changed our way of eating so I'm glad I didn't invest in a grain mill.

No, For me that would be too time consuming.
