Grinding Grain - Step 2

(Grinding Grain - 2)  Start the Vita-Mix and turn the speed to the highest setting.  As it starts to grind, the grain will be drawn down the center and the ground grain will be pushed up along the sides of the container.  As the grain turns into flour, it will begin to bunch up along the side of the container as shown in the photo.  Turn off the power and scrape down the flour with a rubber spatula and continue grinding until the desired consistency is reached.  Repeat as necessary.  Do not grind more than 2 minutes.  The flour from this grinder is about the consistency of stone-ground flour.  The grinding process produces a lot of heat, and it is important not to overheat the flour.  Add the flour to the dough mixer.  CAUTION: If the flour is too hot to comfortably hold in your hand, let it cool before adding to the yeast in the dough mixer.  Repeat the process with the remaining grain.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-5)
