Bob's Red Mill ROCKS!

We toured Bob's Red Mill last week. Very interesting tour- I learned something new about oatmeal. No, I am not going to tell you what I learned, you have to go to Bob's to learn it yourself.

We met Bob,

watched corn being fed into the grinder,

felt the textures of different grinds of different grains,

saw an older version of a stone grinder,

went to the restaurant and store (it's down the street from the mill),

ate delicious sandwiches,

and bought Scottish Oatmeal Blueberry Scones for the evening's dessert. (Nuke 'em for a few seconds and serve with ice cream... YUM.)
You can buy Bob's tasty products in grocery stores, but I would highly recommend a trip to the mill itself. Check the website for details.

  1. Krista just picked up 25 lbs. of wheat berries for me from Bob's! (Oh, such yummy bread it makes.) I've yet to go there myself, but you've inspired me. Looks like the kids would enjoy it!

  2. The kids would enjoy it- even LMAK (but the hour tour might be too long for her?)
    Touring sooner is better than later- if you want to meet Bob, that is. After all, he's 81 years old.
