Fresh-Baked Bread

Our 30-year old Retsel grain grinder gave up the ghost, so we got a new Wondermill grinder and this is Lesley’s first loaf. We buy organic hard red wheat berries in 50 lb. sacks and grind into flour just before baking. The secret to wonderful food, with any cuisine, anywhere, is F-R-E-S-H!

  1. I used to have a Corona hand grinder. It made bread baking a test of strength. Still regularly make it, but now with organic pre-ground flour, which just isn't the same.
    Where to get the 50lb berries?
