After I wrote the article about my Zojirushi Bread Machine, I got an email from a reader sharing her inexpensive tip to grind grain. Many of the grain mills cost around $200 and that is simply not in the budget for some families.
I put my grains in my coffee grinder and then sift them…
Using a coffee grinder to grind wheat is a great and inexpensive way to make delicious homemade bread for cheap! The thing to remember is that you need to sift your flour after you grind the grain in the coffee grinder. Only grind grain in small quantities so you don’t jam your grinder. Usually 3/4 to 1 cup of grain is all a small coffee grinder can handle. Coffee grinders cost under $20 so this is a great way to try out fresh ground wheat before you make a big investment in a grain mill.
