Waffles, Wondermills, Webs

This week, we’re extending the Extreme Food Storage Makeover to Grandma Lori’s daughter Jasmine! She is Jodi’s little sister, and Julie’s sister-in-law. Jasmine has always been into cooking. She has made her own little recipe book and everything. When she kept hearing her big sisters talk about how whole grains are healthier, she wanted to learn about it… Since the Wondermills are on sale for the summer, Grandma Lori took advantage and bought one so now we get to share some fun recipes with the family.

If you’re new to this project, visit our Grandma Lori Makeover Page for the full scoop, and see the journey as it has progressed so far.

Watch the video as Julie shows Jasmine how to grind wheat, and other grains to make Jasmines regular waffle recipe, a delicious multi-grain version. Jasmine might even have a future on the Food Network – who knows? Oh and please excuse the guest appearance from SPIDERMAN himself. Yes it’s last years Halloween outfit he has worn daily since -luckily he didn’t shoot webs into our food.

Here is the Recipe Jasmine used. The ingredients in the brackets are halved, so she can make small batches for herself and her friends.

Waffles
1 ¾ c. flour (1/2 cup + 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp.)
1 tbsp. baking powder (1/2 tbsp.)
½ tsp. salt (1/4 tsp.)
2 c. milk (1 cup)
1/3 c. oil (2 ½ tbsp.) -replace with unsweetened applesauce for low-fat option
2 eggs ( 1 egg)
Mix all ingredients with electric mixer. Pour batter into waffle maker and cook until done.

Stay tuned as we keep showing our family some fun recipes using their food storage!

    I love spiderman standing on the table at the end, haha : ) But seriously! Thank you for this! I didn’t know you could just store the wheat after you grind it in the freezer until the next time you need it.

    Spelt is one if the most perfect and healthy grins you can get, but it is very hard to use… requires patience and experimenting. However, for pancakes and waffles, they make the easiest and best ever!!! Invest in some spelt, because storage is about keeping health in difficult times. Learn to use it and remember, it is better for overall health if you do NOT mix your grains.

    I received some wheat in #10 cans from a neighbor who was moving. I opened a can today to grind and found that it was not cleaned very well and the kernels are very small and whithered. I don't want to ruin my wheat grinder with small rocks, and I don't want to eat straw that I missed picking out of the grain. I think I may need to through it all out. What do you recommend?
