~ When grain is milled, the final volume of flour is greater than the initial volume of grain (for example: 12 cups of wheat kernels yield about 16 cups of whole wheat flour). In the olden days, farmers didn’t have much money to pay the town miller so they paid him in grain. If the farmer came in with 1 bushel of grain (wheat, corn, barley, etc), he got back 1 bushel of flour and the rest of the flour was given to the miller as payment. The miller would then sell this flour to the townspeople to make his profit.

The gift can be as large or small as you would like. Wrap the gift in cellophane and tie a recipe into the bow. Works really well to give an “everything you need for this recipe” gift.
