This week I finally broke out my Family Grain Mill (FGM) Grain-Flaker/Roller attachment, can I say that I love it? Because I do. Up to this point, I’ve been purchasing rolled oats to cook in the morning, I may continue doing that I’m not sure yet, but one thing I’m very happy about is if we are in a survival situation with no power and no way to order rolled oats I can roll my own in a jif!

This is the only attachment on our Family Grain Mill (FGM) that has gotten very little attention in the last year — the other ones have gotten many hours of use. So let me tell you all about my hand-powered FGM!

In my kitchen I keep the FGM base attached to our counter at all times, this makes it quick and easy to grab an attachment and start using it right away. Probably our most-used attachments are the ones for shredding and grating. When we want to add fresh carrot or zucchini to our spaghetti sauce or quick breads, we need only drop the vegetables in the top and crank the handle a few times.

Any type of cheese is also easy to grate or shred. For hard cheeses I uses the one with smaller holes, and for softer cheeses (mozzarella or Colby) I grate it a little bigger.
