Advice pls on grinding small amount of rye
Periodically I make a bread much-loved in Canada called Winnipeg Rye. It barely counts as rye bread because it's mostly bread flour, but those of us who grew up with it have to have our hit once in awhile. :) Among the ingredients is coarse ground whole rye soaked overnight, just 100 grams for two loaves. Until recently, was able to get coarse ground rye from the bulk section of a local supermarket chain. No longer.
I have destroyed two coffee grinders, trying to get rye berries from Whole Foods ground to an approximation of coarse rye. Don't dare try my blender or food processor as I rely on them for so many other purposes. I've taken a hammer to the berries, both as is and slightly roasted as per advice from a chef friend. I have, of course, looked online at grain mills (so expensive!). Also to see if I could source the product in something other than 20 kilo bags from bakery & food service distributors. No luck on the latter. Both online and locally, I can only find whole berries, rye flakes and rye flour.
Any advice for me? Some solution that doesn't cost the earth either here in Canada or because of duties if imported from the US? All thoughts welcome.
