Have been grinding my own flour with my Vita-Mix dry mixer for a couple of years and it is wonderful. Here is a great link offering the challenge to grown your own grain along with your peppers and basil. Pretty interesting, although I am not doing it. http://www.alternet.org/environment/140300/homegrown_grains%3A_the_key_to_food_security/?page=entire

Loved the article, thanks for sharing pierino. Very Nostalgic. Grinding flour was the norm in India up until 20 yrs back when the commercial brands were introduced in a big way. We'd take bags of wheat & set it in line to be grounded by the flour guy who was perennially covered with a dusting of flour!

The hyperlinks are getting messed up because of the commas in the link itself -- so you'll actually need to copy and paste the whole thing, up to ".story"

Pierino, this is very cool, thank you for sharing it!
