Millet is a very delicate looking grain. It’s tiny in size and round in shape. If you every looked or bought bird seeds it’s usually one of the main ingredients. It’s those tiny little yellow seeds you may see. I like millet because it is highly nutritious and easy to digest. It’s very high in the minerals iron, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium. Another thing is that I am allergic to corn so using millet flour, as a mock cornbread is perfect for me. I must admit I miss all things with corn :( But if you haven’t tried millet it’s mildly sweet with a nut-like flavor, very tasty i must say!! If you want to enhance the flavor a little bit just roast those tiny seeds in a dry pan before cooking.
Now, this delicious mock cornbread was made from hulled, organic millet. All I had to do was place it in my miller, change the setting to a fine flour and mill away. I was able to produce this fine flour in minutes that retain all of it nutrients even the natural oils in the grain are kept. WOW! To be honest the taste and texture was quite a bit like cornbread after cooking the millet in the oven. I think I have found my substitution when it comes to corn…Millet Baby…The taste is so delicious!!
