COUNTRY LIVING GRAIN
MILL - Main Page
Prepared for History
By Jack Jenkins
The day will come when (History - a sure template of the future
- leaves no question that it's not a matter of 'if' but 'when')
the wonderful luxury of having all of the ingredients that we're
accustomed to for our favorite recipes might be severely limited.
In Western Washington, where I live, if just two key bridges went
down because of a disaster (man made or natural) the stores would
be empty in less than six hours and it could be weeks or even months,
depending on the scope of the disaster, before they could be replenished.
Just having a prudent grain storage and a quality hand grain mill
(for some reason the Country Living Grain Mill springs to mind)
could literally be a life saver for you and your family.
For example the luscious waffles pictured at the top of this page
were made without oil or eggs - and they could have been made without
baking powder too.* I whipped them up (notice the date on the photos)
the same morning that I milled the wheat on my Country Living Mill
and substituted one half cup of a blended up raw apple - or apple
sauce if you will- ( I found a few left hanging on my Melrose apple
tree) in place of the eggs and oil. The recipe for whole wheat waffles,
and other whole wheat goodies, can be found by clicking on the recipe
links at the top of this page.
