Grain Mill Wagon Experience:

I had a wonderful time using my WonderMill to create many traditional recipes. My first thought was to get very creative and make different dishes using unusual grains that I would not normally try. Then I realized that if I were going to use the grain mill on a daily basis that I needed to cook as I normally do simply replacing the store bought ingredients with fresh ground meal. One thing that surprised me was the ease of use and short amount of time (seconds) that it took to have fresh ground meal. I now consider the WonderMill an essential tool in the kitchen.

I had the opportunity to work with many great bloggers and share their creativity. I will continue to use the WonderMill and experiment with different types of grains make creative dishes. I'll also continue the wonderful recipes of old using fresh home ground meal.
