Grinding Grains [Video Recipe]

grinding grains

Grind fresh whole grains and legumes, which are packed with nutrients, to turn them into healthy, whole grain flour. Have you ever made flour in your Blendtec?

    I grow Heirloom Hopi corn. It’s purple when picked, and turns blue as it dries. I pull the shucks down to the stem and hang them upside down to dry. When completely dry, I pull kernels from the cob. Add 2-2.5 cups and blend on 9 or 10 (i use 10). If you want the flour a bit more fine, do a double cycle.

    (I’d still like to get a finer pastry flour blend, but I find the blender to be insufficient. I’m considering purchasing a mill, too. If you don’t mind the courser corn meal, that it works fine.)

    Can I use my blendtec grain mill to grind almonds? I read something about not grinding things that were too oily because it will start to clog the gears up.

    You cannot grind almonds in the Blendtec Kitchen Mill, the moisture content is too high and will gum up the machine. You can find out more about what you can and cannot use in the mill on our FAQ page under the “Kitchen Mill” section.

    You sure can. Check out our grinding grains guide for assistance.
