Hi! Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how very much I am enjoying my Country Living Grain Mill. IT IS AWESOME !! I am blown away by how fast and easily it works. So far I have used it for wheat and corn and could not be more pleased. The bread I've baked is so tasty, and here in this part of the country with fresh okra and squash coming out of the gardens we do a lot of frying after dredging in cornmeal. Oh my goodness what a tasty treat! I can hardly wait until the next catfish fry!
I do a lot of cooking for some elderly and disabled family members and knowing that the things I'm making for them are fresher and more nutritious makes a world of difference to me. I'll soon be experimenting with making other types of flour (coconut, almonds, amaranth, quinoa) for other family members with gluten tolerance issues and will let you know how those work out.
Last, but certainly not least, I want to let you know how much I appreciate the friendly, caring service I encountered with everyone I've spoken to at Country Living. All of you have been so helpful and kind. That means a lot. I'll be reporting back about the other types of flour in case someone reading your reviews would be interested to know how that works out.
I am very curious about milling rice and other gluten free flours. Please let us know. I’d like to know before I purchase!!!!!
We’re pleased to hear you’re getting some good use out of your mill! You’ll probably have good luck with amaranth and quinoa, but the mill handles dry grains best, so expect your experiment with coconut won’t be as successful.
The Country Living Mill is capable of grinding rice and a number of other non-gluten grains. The main key is that you stick with hard, dry grains. Oily, moist, or soft grains will tend to clog.
