In an e-mail newsletter from Donna Miller at Miller’s Grain House, she reminded me and her other readers that she had been interviewed by James Talmage Stevens, author of Making the Best of Basics.
I listened to the program with Stevens and Miller and want to share highlights from notes I took. It originally aired on January 27, 2010, but the information is as relevant as ever.
* If you have wheat allergies, you might find milling your own flour doesn’t cause you problems. Refined flour has only a few of the nutrients found in whole wheat grain.
* Donna Miller believes strongly in living a prepared lifestyle. Don’t just buy preparedness and survival goods and stow them away. Practice using what you’ve got, or you won’t be able to use it in times of emergency or crisis.
* Popcorn is a versatile grain. Donna says the Wonder Junior Deluxe Manual Mill is the best for grinding popcorn.
* If you make homemade bread and mess it up, there are ways to salvage it. Making croutons is one example.
* Donna explained the features and advantages of the pails she sells with spin-off lids.
