History of Bread: Lesson 1- Grinding the Wheat
And the Little Red Hen asked, "Who will help me grind the wheat?"
Wow, no wonder why it was so hard for Red Hen to find help, this is hard work!
Here are some locally grown, organic wheat berries bought in the bulk food section of our grocery store. Try smelling them, feeling them, tasting them, chewing them....I wonder who thought of grinding them? Who discovered flour? All great questions to ponder with your children.
The set up is simple: a spice grinder, a spoon, one container with wheat berries, and one container for the ground flour.
