To be filed under: something we’d like to own for our idyllic, bread-baking, seed-sprouting, whole-grain life in the future. In truth, none of us at Remodelista has ever ground our own flour, but we have friends who swear by the benefits (better flavor, far more nutritious). And we were so delighted by the look of these wooden home mills, grain silos, and companion accessories by Hawos of Germany that we’re ready to start—or, at least, to contemplate welcoming these accessories into our tiny kitchens.
Ready to consider milling your own flour for bread baking? My friend Giti Koenig has been doing it for years. She orders whole grains online from Azure Market, mills the amount of flour she needs (it doesn’t keep for long), and makes Mark Bittman’s much-celebrated No-Knead Bread from Jim Lahey: “Using a sourdough starter, it takes me a total of about three minutes to make a loaf. At one point, I was baking a loaf a day.”
