I'm really wanting a Vita-Mix. I was thinking I could use the excuse that I need it to make my own flours. But do you wash the chickpeas first before making flour? I think of all of the rinsing I do before I soak chickpeas for cooking, and I don't think I'd want to just grind up the dry chickpeas as they are when I purchase them.

this is funny because I've been thinking about the same thing myself. As I was throwing grains into my grain mill I was thinking how carefully I wash the grains when I make cereal! I'm almost out of chickpea flour and knew I was going to make my own with my mill and pondered this point! There's no other way, it's gotta be dry when you grind it.
