More about grinding and mixing

Nowadays herbs and spices are ground in modern mechanical mills, often in the country of origin. This is efficient, safe and fast. Why then do we grind on wind force spices in De Ster and De Lelie? Here we have a number of reasons for:

  • In operation, the mill comes into its own and we can best show you how to grind spices with very old machines.
  • By regularly grinding spices, we maintain knowledge about grinding spices on wind power.
  • Spice milled spices are a unique product and the profit benefits the mills.

Most spices are ground on the edge stones. In this way the regrind is crushed by the large weight of the stones (the stones of De Ster are approx. 2.5t each) and the tight turning circle of the stones. During milling, the spices are continuously mixed by sliders so that the spices are also mixed at the same time. As a result, the spices do not get hot during grinding so that smell and taste are kept as good as possible. After grinding, the spices are sieved to get a constant fineness.
