Fresh Ground Corn Grits using the Hawos Queen 2 Grainmill

My Hawos Queen 2 Grain mill from Germany is amazing. A couple of weeks ago I ordered 20 pounds of organic whole corn. Today I ground the corn into grits. I love the expensive course cut grits found in boutique food shops in the south. The organic corn was roughly 2 dollars a pound.

Homemade Tortillas are always better than boughten

Making tortillas are easy. My 7 y/o daughter makes them by herself. No she does not just open the package and heat them in the microwave, she makes them from real ingredients all by herself without further instruction. Not only do we use the tortillas for Mexican food but fresh tortillas are great for wraps like roast turkey or roast beef. Making your own you know and control what is in them; fresh wholesome ingredients.
