Ground Linseeds, my a**e

Postby Superflor » Sat Jan 28, 2012 10:04 pm

I reed that ground linseeds were better than whole as you can absord the goodness better but so far I've tried using a blender, a papper mill, a wooden pestle and mortar and today a manual coffee grinder and the b*****ds still come out whole. I hate the taste of the oil and would prefer to use the seeds but can't seem to get them in the ready ground form here. Anything I'm missing? Getting a bit fed up of returning kitchen equipment to the discount store!

I use an old Bodum coffee chopper and have no problems grinding them up quite finely.

Obviously the result of cognitive decline brought on by an omeg 3 EFA shortage.

I use a $20 dollar electric personal coffee grinder I got at a Starbucks several years back. Works great. You can probably get something similar at any big appliance store.

I use a hand blender, with a chopper attachment. Not too expensive, and no problem chopping up linseed. ie something like this (using the chopper thing on the right): http://www.braun.com/au/hand-blenders/multiquick-3.html

Cheap electric coffee grinder from ebay. Reduces them to powder in just a few seconds.

In the past I used a coffee grinder, at the moment I just put them in my smoothie and the blender seems to sort them out.
The grinder is probably better, from what I can remember, when I ground them in the coffee grinder and then added them to the smoothie it used to go less smiley.

Doke Cheers. I noticed an electric grinder next to the manual one I got from the shop so hoping I can exchange and hoping it works.

Ok, AT LAST!! Was able to trade in the hand held coffee grinder for a cheap electric one and after a while I finally got my result. Cheers.
