This is how the bread starts for me. With my Kitchenaid attachable wheat grinder. This handy dandy tool attaches onto my mixer and does the work of grinding for me. I would suggest that even before you start gathering and storing wheat, you get a wheat grinder. You could still cook your wheat and sprout your wheat, but having a grinder is what will enable you to make breads, etc. if you need it!
I grind 3 cups of wheat which equals 4 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour. I then add to the wheat flour:
1/3 c. sugar
1 T. salt
1 T. powdered egg (a real egg could be used also)
Add 5 1/2 cups of hot water
2/3 c. oil
1/3 c. honey (use the same measuring cup you used for the oil, the honey will just slip out!)
Then add 1/2 c. gluten flour (The most economical way I have found to buy this is in the Morning Moo's #10 can.)
Oh, the pride! I hope you'll get ready to make your first loaf, too, if you haven't already. So, so yummy and so, so good!
