Topic: Cleaning that Grinder: Rice vs minute Ricee (18 msgs / 290 lines)
1) From: Rbt Tut
Does the group have any strong opinion one vs the other?  don't have any
minute rice but as its par-boiled and then dried it might be softer than
regular Basmati.
there by prolonging grinder blade sharpness by a little?
many thanks!

HA! One thing that's not lacking here is strong opinion on this.

You're going to get lots of opinions, I'm sure - all I'll say is just make
sure you don't cook the rice first...

No opinion, but since we only eat brown rice, that's what I feed my grinder.
This could be the worst option.  It is quite loud when grinding, but then
again I don't have a very nice grinder (yet).

The instant rice was much easier to grind, so I use only it now. I found a
box -- an off brand -- at a discount store for a quarter. Enough grinder
cleaner to last years!

I regularly (once a week) use some cheap parboiled rice. Regular rice is
hard, and has jammed the rocky!! Ive used both white and brown (when i want
to give rocky a spa day).

Oatmeal works well, as well...  It has a slightly abrasive quality 
and tends to hold onto oils...

Hmmm. Excellent idea. Does it stick in the grinder though?

Yeah, I'd rather switch to oatmeal from brown rice instead of trying to
stock minute rice just for the grinder, if it works.

Oatmeal has a pretty high fat content. May not be the best choice...

Sure, but at what point do I add the brown sugar and butter?

Do you use the quick cooking oatmeal, or the 5 minute?
Or better yet, steel cut? MacCanns?

Best bet would be pearled barley.
Low fat, cheap, and an every household staple....
or not.

Grind as fine as your machine will allow.Grind some stop,for a few minutes,
to allow the rice to absorb the oils. Repeat procedure until all the rice is
gone. Vacuum remains, grind some beans vacuum out remains.

Mark -
If you really are in the organic grain business - you should post a link to
your info.
Many of us here are avid bakers and cooks.
Or at least I am...

Hello Lynne,
Well, I'm in the commodity side. If you'd like a rail car or two....We
have yet to launch a retail brand, so I'm not sure how relevant it
would be...
(and that wasn't my intent...)
But here's a link...http://www.ceresorganic.com/Mark

Ha - well, there are some winter days that it seems I make enough bread and
pizza to take a rail car - or two. But... I think I'll pass..
Thanks for posting the link, though. Wish you had a retail end..
