How to make Mesquite Flour

Before you make Mesquite Flour you will need:
  • A mesquite tree with plenty of mesquite pods falling to the ground
  • A Vitamix
  • A sieve or colander
  • A bowl
  • A two-year-old (optional)
  • A four-year-old (optional)
Some people pick the mesquite pods directly from the tree or put down a tarp and shake the tree. All our pods are freshly on the ground so we picked them up off the crushed granite.

Since the pods were clean and dry no further processing was necessary. Next you put them in the Vitamix. The most efficient way to do that is to use a two-year-old and a four-year-old if you have them handy.

Now put the jug on the base and switch it on until you have a collection of seed and powder.

Sieve the seeds and chaff and let the powder fall through into a bowl.

Now you have mesquite flour.

You don't eat the seeds only the empty pods
