My Flour Can Beat Up Your Flour

I've been playing with Flour A for a bit now. It's a formula I made from mostly home-ground nuts, seeds and anything else I can make into a flour. Although there remains one component that I still buy. But it won't be long until I'm making that at home as well. Because home-ground flours beat the ever lovin' snot out of anything, shoppe-bought.

But I digress.

This afternoon, I was struggling with Flour A and I thought, wait a cotton' pickin' minute. How about I add my beloved sorghum flour and call this batch, Flour B.

Voila! Flour B is born.

Now, for more testing. Let's see how she does in my double butt waffle iron. But first, I'm off to Aldi to see what's on offer this week. Tim had the car all last week and now that I am not housebound, I'm going ingredient shopping.

Muwhahahahaha.

  6. What do you use to grind your nuts up small enough to make flour? Have fun with your ingredients.

    1. I have a killer food processor, A nice spice grinder, plus a blender. All do well with various nuts, seeds, dried herbs and whatever else I can grind into a flour. Someday, I'll get a small mill. But for now, those three do great.

  12. I don't believe I've ever known anyone with allergies to the extent of yours. My goodness, just trying to figure out what you CAN eat must be quite a chore....do you have children and are they also this allergic ? I know allergies run in families..my dad had skin allergies, I have them and some of my grands have them..no food allergies, tho.

    1. Oh man, I've been making my own flour combinations and grounding things at home LONG before I ever started this blog.

      I'm a from scratch kinda gal.

      As for allergies, I'm doing pretty darn good. I've learned so much from the last year, that I wouldn't change a thing, even if I could.
