New Grinding Surfaces!
Last spring and summer we had a problem with a huge lot of grain that had rocks in it... some of them escaped our cleaning process and damaged the 24-inch stones in our flour grinder. This effected the flour by making it coarse. We did a temporary 'fix' until our grinder repairman could do a resurfacing.
Below are the pictures I took while the repair work was being done. That's Hank Duncan working on the stones. I was so amazed when Hank had the machine opened. The 24-inch stones are pink granite and are just beautiful!
So, I'm sure you have noticed... the flour is back to being a fine, powdery consistency.
We Are Changing Our Name!
As some of you know, the name 'Essential Eating' that we have been using belongs to Janie Quinn, the author of Essential Eating - A Cookbook. It is her registered trademark and she graciously offered us the use of the name as a way to link our products and concepts together.
But, as most of you know, the plans and directions that we think we can follow often have 90 degree turns in them. Such a turn presented itself to Janie and I and the name is returning to her.
As part of our new direction and energy, the Sprouted Flour Co. is changing it's name to Summers Sprouted Flour Co. Expect to see the old and new names interchangeably for awhile. It will take us some time to use up all the labels we have... but as we reprint, all our new changes will be reflected.
This direction change has allowed us to catch up with other plans we have had on hold. One change is that our parent company, CreatingHeaven.Net, has incorporated. We are now CreatingHeaven.Net, Inc., an organization of and for developing franchise companies dedicated to creating healthy eating habits, healthy food products, healthy lifestyles and healthy working companies and environments.
We are also ‘going kosher’. This was an eventual addition. Most health food processors that make breads, baked goods and other processed foods like candy bars, are kosher and require all foods used in their products to be kosher. We have a pending development that required we go kosher to land the contract.
And, all these changes mean that our website is being rearranged to reflect our new direction and energy. You will still see me blowing out sparks of joy that turn into our CH.N menu… but we are adding new links, pages and information.
Sprouted Rye Flour
All these changes - the name, the incorporation and the kosher rating, are going to be reflected on our labels. And it means we can now print the proper labels for our Sprouted Rye Flour. So, after the beginning of the year, you can start asking for Sprouted Rye Flour in your stores!
