Scd Almond Flour--what Are The Options?

16 December 2008 - 07:36 PM

I've been grinding my own almonds for a little baking, but am facing a period of time where time and energy will be a premium, and also the nuts don't grind as fine as I'd like for some baking.

What are the best sources and what is a reasonable price?

Grinding Nut Flours--help With Equipment

24 September 2008 - 12:41 AM

I'm on SCD and using almond nut flour for baking but am struggling with getting it ground fine enough. Appliances here in China are limited, weak in power, expensive for what you get. My current appliance grinds a small amount in the blender that is "meal" rather than "flour." The dry grinder attachment (looks like a coffee grinder) makes it into almond butter but very chunky.

There are only a couple of choices of food processor, one is very low watts, 300W, and the other is 600W and very expensive, over $200 US. There are a couple of blenders with 500W or so, one is about $50 US (my current one is 400W which is stronger than most of them). Electric here is 220.

I'm still looking for options. Any suggestions on what would work best? What power, what type of blade, etc.? Would some kind of hand grinder work better, if so, what kind?

Thanks for any tips you might have. I can't buy almond flour so am stuck pretty much.
