Because he drank his coffee before it was cool.

I run my own farm and plant my own wheat by hand. Then I purchased a millstone from a family of quarry workers who have owned the local quarry for seven generations, and milled my own flour. Only after that, do I bake my own bread. None of y'all know what good bread is.
 
2014-04-15 04:09:24 PM
I just make my bread from scratch with whole wheat flour. Less salt and other things than if I were to buy it at the store.

Fark hipsters sideways with a rusty spork.

That said, I'm going to try my hand at making some bread out of the ancient grains after making the flour in a food processor.  I already make my own nut flour and meals for energy bars and cookies.  Making it for bread will just be another day in the kitchen.  As a bonus I, not some nameless exec at BlandFoodInc, will choose exactly what my bread is.

What exactly does "steel cut" oats mean?  Are oats that are cut with a steel blade somehow healthier than if the blade were made of -- say -- titanium?  ...and wouldn't steel be the default material to make industrial cutting equipment out of anyway, given that it's far cheaper than almost any other competing material?

My bread has so much whole grain it's just chunks of wheat plants pressed together.
 
2014-04-15 04:15:22 PM
But are the ingredients mixed with love by an artisanal baker using old-world methods and equipment? How many different types of grains are used?  Are the grains grown locally, and if so can you provide the address of the farm so I can speak to the farmer?  I have some more very important questions about this bread I need answered.

Steel cut oats are different from rolled oats. That's your choices. Rolled oats cook really fast (that's what Americans think of when they think oatmeal). Steel cut oats take much longer to cook; that's what Scottish porridge is made from. Very different texture.

/I've tried steel cut oats; not enough better than regular rolled oats to justify the extra time.

I recently tried some Ezekiel bread, which is made primarily of sprouted grains. I guess it's supposed to be good for you but the only way I could stomach it was to *toast it and put some peanut butter on it. And unless you keep it in the refrigerator it will be moldy in two days. Other than that I guess it was OK.

*It doesn't really "toast". It just gets warm.

I offer the last 6000 years of civilization as a refutation of his premise. Grain is pretty much why we have learning to begin with, and without it we'd be squatting in caves wondering what monster tried to eat the moon last night.

It's "better" because it's less processed and healthier. As for the flavor, it's supposed to be nuttier.

As someone that has met the farmers that grow as well as mill the wheat that is used in his kitchen, I'm getting a big kick.

No, seriously, they're actually local.

What you're missing from that link is that since Oregon banned field burning, more turf seed farmers have wanted to turn to grains, but previously the logistics of shipping that wheat to be milled a couple hundred miles away ate into profits.

I understand trying to do things the old fashioned way, if for no other purpose than to get in touch with where you came from and challenge yourself to master what those who came before you mastered. But doing it to stick it to the man is a pretty hipster thing to do. Between the "ancient grains" babble and that, I'm going to assume you're in flannel and thick rimmed glasses riding a velocipede.

I don't even eat bread. I go out into my rooftop garden every morning and eat the grain right out of the wheat and barley with my bare mouth, as nature intended.

Missed this one.

I'm going to assume that you're young and live in the city because your understanding of the history of "sticking it to the man" is so grossly lacking.  People have been outlaws, rebels or just plain ornery towards anything resembling authority since Atouk wanted to zugzug Lana.  Hipsters are johnny come lately's to this party.

My grandmother is currently in an old-folks home because, at 87, she needs full time medical care. The place is full of old people doddering around in wheelchairs and drooling on themselves. It's a nice facility, but still, in any case, not some place I want to end up.

And the problem with adding years to your life through this kind of "healthy eating" is that I'm afraid the years I add will be spent doddering around in a wheelchair and drooling on myself.

I've decided that if I make it that long, it's cigarettes, alcohol, and opiates for me.

Until I am good and ready to go.

Hopefully, I will have retained enough of a circle of friends who will supply me with those vices.

Or maybe, at least, a sympathetic doctor.
