How to make buckwheat flour - two ways

This is more of a method that a recipe. option A. is simply to chuck it in your blender and whiz. option B. is to soak and dehydrate and then grind - Q. Why bother? A. It makes it more digestible. I can't have rice flour or ordinary buckwheat flour as they make me feel sick. However, soaked and dehydrated buckwheat flour is fine for me. (I'm going to experement with soaked and dehydrated rice flour soon, too)

Method A:

Place 1 and 1/2 cups buckwheat in blender and whiz until a fine flour is reached.

Method B:

Put buckwheat in a bowl and cover with 5 inches of water. Soak over night. In the morning drain and place on a baking tray. Spread thinly. You might need two trays. Place in dehydrator and dry at  50C for 8 hours or overnight. When dry blend to a fine flour.
