Grain & Bread connect to so many sayings:
"Bread is the staff of life",
"Home is where the heart is", "With a grain of salt", "Give us our daily bread this day", "One grain ten thousand grains".
Our human history begins around gathering wild grasses, grains, & around the hearth and baking bread.
Go ahead & take the dive into bread making - you won't be disappointed!
Many ovens have a proof function which is great, if not set your oven for the lowest temperature, when it reaches 110° (F) turn the oven off, the goal is around 75 to 85 degrees
keep the door closed. Yeast dies at 138° (F).

A grain grinder is a great investment to bring into your kitchen. The Komo is a stone grinder, it has many levels of texture from gritty to fine flours. It makes such a difference to be able to have freshly ground food from a whole grain, seed, and beans. The nutrition is certainly at peak best and the avoidance of rancidity is an added benefit. I love my grinder, it opens up my imagination for so many ways to utilize texture.
