Meadows Stone Burr Mills and Related Products Meadows Mills has manufactured stone burr mills since 1902. Meadows stone burr mills, also referred to as grist mills, are designed to grind all dry, free-flowing grains and corn into flour, meal, or grits. The millstones used in all Meadows stone burr mills are cut from Balfour pink granite which is quarried in North Carolina. The millstones operate in pairs with a revolving millstone called the "runner" stone and a stationary millstone called the "bedstone." The millstones are set vertically, a feature unique to Meadows' stone burr mills. The surface of each millstone is a combination of "furrows" which are grooves cut into the face of the millstones, and "lands" which are the flat areas of the millstones.

Liver: nature’s most potent superfood The base nutritional content of Liver in comparison to raw vegetables bares no relevence in regards to the benefit it holds once digested by the human body. Yes, that’s correct. But the nutrients in liver are not only significantly more numerous than they are in fruits and vegetables, they are more assimilable.

Ferment Your Own Vinegar Even the most attentive cook can accidentally make vinegar when an open bottle of wine turns or apple cider starts to ferment. These natural reactions occur because Acetobacter, acid-producing bacteria, cover everything in our environment. Many wise cooks harness these cultures to brew their own homespun vinegars.

"The most interesting thing about beer vinegars, which are typically my favorites, [is] what flavors present themselves in vinegar form versus in beer form,” Smrecek says, "They definitely differ.”
