Flour

Grain reduced to the form of meal is spoken of in the time of Abraham (Genesis 18:6 ). As baking was a daily necessity, grain was also ground daily at the mills (Jeremiah 25:10 ). The flour mingled with water was kneaded in kneading-troughs, and sometimes leaven (Exodus 12:34 ) was added and sometimes omitted (Genesis 19:3 ). The dough was then formed into thin cakes nine or ten inches in diameter and baked in the oven.

Fine flour was offered by the poor as a sin-offering (Leviticus 5:11-13 ), and also in connection with other sacrifices (Numbers 15:3-12 ; 28:7-29 ).
