Organic Whole Grain White Wheat - Giveaway

Product - Certified Organic Soft White Winter Wheat Whole Grain (5lb Bag)

Company - Tropical Traditions

Price - $12.51

Description from the Company

"Wheat, Soft White Winter is used primarily for cake or “pastry” flour. Its lower protein and gluten content make for a light flour and a tender baked good." 

My Thoughts 


I bake with wheat flour on a daily basis. I was thrilled to receive this bag of organic whole grain. However, I did not realize it was "whole," meaning it was not "flour!" It needed to be milled or ground in order to use. Well, I searched and searched and tried to purchase a mill at a reasonable price but couldn't find anything that was inexpensive. Sadly, I was not able to use this. However, I plan to continue my search for an affordable mill and have every intention of starting the process of baking with whole grains! I look forward to learning how to grind this myself and use fresh flour in my baking.

How would you like a chance to win a 5 pound bag of this Soft White Wheat Whole Grain?  I have one available for a giveaway. All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me whether or not you own a grain mill. You can even offer a suggestion for an inexpensive one!

I own two grain mills! One is electric and my favorite (Nutrimill). One is hand crank and takes a lot longer to get enough flour milled for my family...but we used it for years before getting the electric one.

I have a Country Living Mill hand grinder ~ it is a lot of work, but can also be motorized which is why I selected it. We also have an old commercial grinder that was given to us by Luke's grandmother ~ finding an old stone mill in good working order would be a good idea and save money!

Don't forget about Sue Gregg! You can make so many things with whole wheat in your blender! I just made Blender Banana muffins this morning to bake tomorrow morning. I also love her Blender Batter pancakes.

I'd love to win this! I own a grain mill that was my grandmother's, but my parents buy wheat in bulk & have a really heavy duty grain mill (Dad got it free 35+ years ago when he helped clean out an estate that had been left to the church, so it was probably old even then) so I usually just get flour from them.

Oh boy! I am looking for a cheap grinder right now, but don't own one yet boohoo, but have friends that do. I would love to try this!!

Susan Oehmler said...

I do not own a grain mill, but I could also use it as sprouted wheat in bread. I've been wanting to get one, maybe this would be the push to finally do it.

April E. said...

I don't own a grain mill but Susan just reminded me that I could try to use it in other ways, like Sue Gregg's blender method of baking.

I own a nutrimill. I bought it last year with our tax return and absolutely love it.

I did "I Like" on Facebook. I don't know what type of grinder you want but I got a Victorio Hand Grain Mill not long ago from Wheatgrasskits dot com for $69.95. this was the lowest in price and it had good ratings so we bought it. It does not make the flour real fine but it is good enought to make bread and pizza. Thanks Jessica

I used to own a grain mill, but it broke. :( Now, I borrow my sister's mill occasionally, grind up a bunch of wheat at one time, and keep the flour in the freezer.

You could use your whole grain for Sue Gregg's blender batter baking.

I have a vita mix which works very well at grinding grain.

We own a grain mill (K-Tec that we purchased through the Urban Homemaker in Colorado) and have owned it for 15 years. I used it for 5 years, then stored it away for 9 years, and now have been using it again for about a year. It's very fast and grinds the grain at a low temperature, which is what you want to maintain all the nutrition in whole wheat. It stores nicely, in it's own flour 'bin' that holds about 5 pounds of milled flour. We bought lots and lots of whole wheat for the Y2K thing, and are still using buckets that I stored away back in 1999. I didn't do anything special...just used 2nd hand food grade plastic buckets with lids and duck taped the lids onto the buckets. A couple have gotten wormy, but that's all out of many buckets. My mill cost $200 back in 1995, but here is a link showing it for even less than that! The mill shown looks identical to mine, except my flour bin in tinted a dark grey.

I have been grinding wheat for baking for years.

Did you know you can do blender batters using whole grains? I have been doing this since my electric mill died.

The blender is just a $30 osterizer.

If you would like more info I will be glad to forward you some recipes and tips.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Beth said...

I own a nutrimill. I also use whole grains with Sue Gregg's blender batter recipes.

Debra said...

I do not have a grain mill. I do have friends who do. And I've done things with the blender (ala Sue Gregg) with my whole wheat before. :)

I do not own a grinder. But, my husband and I have been talking about getting one and doing a "bread day" --right now, we go through a loaf a day most days, hmmm. Either way, if I won, I would go ahead and use some recipes where you don't have to grind it...

Heather said...

I retweeted...but couldn't get the tweet stamp on new twitter! But, its me--I DID do it!

Heidi said...

I own a Whisper Mill (I think it might be called something else now). It doesn't exactly "whisper", but it works great!

I have baked with whole grains for about 18 years. My grain mill, of that age, just died this spring and I need to replace it. Like you, I am interested in recomendations of a good mill for a reasonable price.

I have also used Sue Gregg's blender batter recipes and can recommend those to you.

I would enjoy winning this grain!

I own a grain mill (nutrimill). I make blender pancakes all the time by blending the buttermilk with the grain. No need for a mill with this recipe.
