I haven’t seen this tip posted anywhere yet but here it goes. This may help the folks in Iraq as well as whole flax keeps better than milled.
You can ‘mill’ your whole seed flax with a coffee grinder.
It is actually better quality fresh ground than the milled. As soon as the seed is processed and exposed to oxygen some of the things we are looking for start breaking down. It is equivalent to why fresh ground coffee is better than pre-ground store bought.
