If prepping your own flour, here are the steps to take. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3! You’ll need to 1} cleanse the einkorn berries, 2} dry off the water from them and 3} mill the berries to flour.
Step #1: Cleanse the einkorn berries. Place the einkorn berries into a glass mason jar (wide mouth, 64 ounce size), and fill the jar no more than three quarters of the way.
Step #2: Add enough filtered-purified water to cover over the einkorn berries by a few inches.
Step #3: Use the two-piece lid that came with the glass mason jar, seal up the jar and shake vigorously.
Step #4: Take off the two-piece lid, and use a strainer lid to pour off the water from the einkorn berries.

Step #5: To thoroughly cleanse the einkorn berries, repeat this procedure one more time.
Step #6: Place the einkorn berries into a dehydrator machine, and dry them at a temperature no higher than 112 degrees Fahrenheit. You may first need to line the dehydrator trays with parchment paper (so that the einkorn berries don’t get stuck in the holes of the trays).
You’re going to need parchment paper later on in the bread-making process. So, why not make sure that you have it on hand?

Before you mill the einkorn berries, the berries must be good and dry. It’s best to leave the einkorn berries in the dehydrator for at least 24 hours in order to completely dry them.
