Can I tell you once again how much I love my grain mill? Freshly milled flour makes food taste so much better. Food is fresher and much more nutritious with fresh flour. And by using it right away, all the nutrition is still there. And I can mill only what I need when I need it.
Pumpkin Bread is so delicious and you can “mix it up” by adding walnuts, a bit of honey, raisins… the options are endless!!! Here is a recipe for a basic bread that is sure to please the whole family.
