The reasons to mill your own flour are plentiful. Home-ground flour is fresher, nutrient-dense, safer from cross-contamination with allergens, and free from preservatives and chemicals. It also offers a diversity of new flavors and gluten-free options. Plus, grinding flour at home is surprisingly easy, versatile, and inexpensive.
In The Homemade Flour Cookbook, author Erin Alderson provides an overview of home milling equipment—including electric and non-electric grinders, food processors, blenders, and even coffee grinders—followed by flour-ingredient profiles and an abundance of sweet and savory recipes for enjoying your homemade flour.
Discover a great wide world of culinary possibilities with flours made from glorious grains such as barley, kamut, einkorn, and wheat berries; gluten-free grains including amaranth, quinoa, oats, and buckwheat; lovely legumes like chickpeas, black beans, and lentils; and nourishing nuts and seeds such as flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, and walnuts. Each profile describes the ingredient’s distinct flavor and culinary history, with tips on where to find it and how to grind it and cook with it.
