Rolled Grains

An easy way to reduce the cooking time for all grains is to pass them through a table-mounted, hand-cranked, roller mill. It is also called a grain flaker mill.  We have one on display at market and we highly recommend it.  We have had one for over 10 years and we love it—especially our children.  It turns wheat berries into cracked wheat for a delicious breakfast porridge (known as cream of wheat).  It turns rye berries into cracked rye, which can also be used in a breakfast porridge.  It turns oats into beautiful, truly old-fashioned rolled oats.  Most important, it’s an easy and fun way to include small children in food preparations.  They love it and it connects them.  It is a great step in eating wholesome, fresh food.

We can recommend two sources for the Italian-made roller mill, which cost around $100.00: Wisemen Trading and Supply and Lehman’s.
