Ezekial 4:9 bread

In a comment to my last post, Gail asked what Ezekial 4:9 bread is.   I thought that there might be others also that might wonder, so I thought I’d post it in a regular post, just in case you don’t read the comments.

No better way to explain something than to go directly to the source–God’s Word!

Ezekiel 4:9 (New International Version)

9 â??Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself. You are to eat it during the 390 days you lie on your side.

Yes, you can make it, but you need a grain grinder to grind the grains/beans into flour (you can do a sprouted grain version, I just donâ??t know anything about doing that). You can definitely buy it. Many grocery stores carry it now, or you can find it at natural foods stores also. You may also be able to order it online somewhereâ?¦..That Iâ??m not really sure about!

    Ah ok, so you can buy it….which is what I figured from the recipe I’d seen that called for it.
    But did you say in your last post that you were making some? If you do, you should do a post about it, with pictures!

    Gail, I will be happy to do that….My schedule for the rest of the week has changed though, so I’ll make it next week! 🙂

    Hi Julie,
    I am interested in making Ezekiel Bread with your recipe and I really love your idea about making up the mix and storing it in a bucket! I have one question though…

    Do you grind up the mixed stuff all together? For some reason I always thought you would have to grind each ‘thing’ separately. I have a NutriMill and I was concerned that the wheat will not be ground up at all when I have to open it up to allow the larger beans to pass through??

    Hi there Evelyn Mae,

    I do grind everything together in my whispermill. I have never used a nutrimill, but I know that they are very similar to the whispermill in functionality. Your concern about the wheat not getting ground is nothing to worry about, because with impact mills there isn’t anything but flour that comes out…..you can’t “crack” your grains using an impact mill….only mill flour. Your flour will come out SLIGHLY more coarse (I BARELY notice a difference and I’ve been doing this for 15 years) than normal ww flour, but once you make your bread, you won’t notice a difference. This is a recipe where you definitely want to use the vital gluten as a dough enhancer…..you will get a softer fluffier loaf if you do.

    I hope that that helps!
