In my quest to eat healthier, I’ve been wanting to try to grind my own grains. But I’ve found the cost of grain grinders to be somewhat prohibitive, especially since I don’t know if I’ll grind enough to make such a big purchase worth it.
While I was visiting my good friend, Julieanne, last week, she mentioned that she was looking into getting a Cuisinart coffee grinder for grinding grains. Like me, she didn’t want to spend the money on an expensive grain mill, if she wasn’t going to use it very much. She got the idea from the Sue Gregg website.
A few days after my visit with Julieanne, I headed to Costco for a basic shopping trip and came across this Cuisinart coffee grinder for $30! You can’t beat that price!
So now I have a grinder that will work for small amounts of grains. If I find I’m using it a lot, I may someday splurge on something that’s a bit more heavy-duty, but this is a good first step.
Do you grind your own grains? Is a grain mill worth the price?
