We've entered that season when homemade soup and fresh out of the oven breads are preferred. The soup part Mary has perfected. The bread part we are learning.

Mary has a sourdough starter in the works, still not ready to use and we aren't sure why it's taking so long. If you are thinking of making your own breads check out The Perfect Loaf web site. (Click Here) He has a wealth of information there to guide you through all stages of bread making.

We use our Vitamix to grind the wheat grain which it does in seconds. It does heat up the grain the longer you grind it which isn't good for the flour.

Our flour, full of all the nutrients the grain came with and no preservatives or binders.

We grind a small batch at a time and I'll post more pictures once we actually get a loaf out of the oven.

Hot soup, fresh bread, my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Safe travels everyone and thanks for stopping by.

  1. You're making my mouth water just reading your post. I used to make eight loaves at a time but I didn't grind my own grains. I'm anxious to see how it turned out.
    I'm going to visit my sisters Carroll and Grace in Owen this morning. Grace has Alzheimer's disease and she probably won't know me but I have to see how she is. It is very heartbreaking to see a once very vibrant woman reduced to the state she is in now. I get knots in my stomach.
    Ian still without any pain since I started drinking the aloe Vera water!!
