The English word flour is originally a variant of the word flower, and both words derive from the Old French fleur or flour, which had the literal meaning “blossom”, and a figurative meaning “the finest”. The phrase fleur de farine meant “the finest part of the meal”, since flour resulted from the elimination of coarse and unwanted matter from the grain during milling. Milling of flour is accomplished by grinding grain between stones or steel wheels. Today, “stone-ground” usually means that the grain has been ground in a mill in which a revolving stone wheel turns over a stationary stone wheel, vertically or horizontally with the grain in between.
