From an other Angle
A very ‘Dutchy’ picture today, the Greyhound mill from an other angle. It is most of the time a picture of the same mill on my blog. Woerden has one mill and I live right besides it. I think it is a magnificent one. It is build on a hill and on Saturday it is 'working'. They still do grind cereal there, so if you like you can go up to buy an ounce of flower.... I don't think it tastes different.
I have read ones that the ancient Egyptians used to have very bad tooth. This because when grinding cereal, they added sand. That simplified the grinding process..
