My hubby was thinking we could probably use our Magic Mill to grind almonds [affiliate link]. I told him I thought they would be too “wet” and he said that wheat isn't totally dried out.

So I thought I'd give it a whirl today.

First I grinded the almonds (with skin and everything) in my Magic Bullet.

Then I put the partially ground almonds into my Magic Mill wheat grinder.

Grinding Almonds

Well, now I know how to make almond BUTTER [affiliate link]. But of course that's probably not very good for the mill!!   I then put in some wheat to try to clean it out a bit. It didn't really work too good, but at least it's not totally clogged up.

The morale of the story is DON'T DO IT.  I found out it is the OILINESS of nuts that is the problem, not the “wetness” as I'd mentioned to my husband.

    OUCH! Poor Magic Mill! I sure hope it will be OK!

    I have always wondered how the almond butter comes out so oily in those machines where you grind the almonds yourself?!!! Everyone says when you make almond butter at home it comes out dry, unless you add additional oil, and yet the ones that come out of the machine at Whole Foods is a wonderful, soft and oily consistency and so delicious!

    Do you know the secret???

    Hi Victoria! I think my Magic Mill is going to make it. I sent about a cup of wheat through and it came out clumpy, which I hope means it was gathering almond butter while it worked. I do not know the secret, but I have an idea of how it works. The almond butter coming through my Magic Mill were warm, so I think it’s a heat factor. I am going to experiment when I get more almonds, and I’ll let you know. Not with the Magic Mill! A different experiment. 🙂 Thanks for visiting and commenting! Starlene
