Flowers to Flour (flour extender)
I am also running low on my flour supply. I remembered something I read last summer about the early settlers adding ground clover flowers to their supply of wheat to extend it. I just so happened to have a gallon bag of dry clover flowers gathered last summer (during the first challenge). I figured - why not? So, above are a progression of flowers to flour. From left to right are the flowers, the petals and the flour. I'll let you know how it turns out. Mark, I have more if you would like to try them.
We hope you enjoy our blog about 3 challenges we embarked upon to experience eating from the past. We grew our own food, hunted, gathered and preserved while trying to avoid modern day conveniences and temptation. It was challenging and rewarding! Stay tuned for updates!
