bread making

  1. Food and water
    Remember when they used to sell fresh, refrigerated cake yeast? I liked the bread baked with it. It had a nice flavor. The bottled yeast and envelope yeast we got nowadays is all sold out wherever you look. Also baking powder and baking soda all gone. You can bake sourdough with no store bought...
  2. Food and water
    I used to buy wheat berries at Walmart, about 10 years ago. Then they stopped selling bags of them. I think they were 25 pounders. Also bought at health food store out in the stix, but they went out of biz years ago. I had given up on milling flour and just bought whole wheat flour at the...
  3. Ladies Section
    Hi, I'm starting my 2nd month on leave, I'm knackered and it's midwinter here, and I'm loving every second of not being up a ladder in the freezing cold, pruning things. So of course I'm broke. Broke at home in winter. Oh dear, how sad, never mind. Looked in the fridge. Nothing. Looked at my...

  5. Food and water
    I bake bread 2 or 3 times per week. I have about 5 favorite bread recipes and baking methods. Anyway, some days I'll bake 3 or 4 loaves at once. How do you store bread to keep a few days. Around my house, it won't sit around without being eaten for more than a week or so. :) But, I am asking...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I am planning on asking my parents to get me a wheat cookbook for Christmas, unless I just get it sooner, but I was wondering what other ingredients I need to stock up on to make bread from freshly ground wheat berries. I plan to get a mill sometime soon as well.
  7. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    My wife and I are working out the details of our long term chow plan, post-SHTF. Bread has to be one of the staples. We have been working on baking bread from scratch using yeast. So far, I have not been able to replicate a really good soft (inside) bread without an overly crusty exterior...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    My wife and I are conducting an audit of our preps and our skill sets and it appears that we are a bit out of balance. In an effort to correct this we are trying to work on post-SHTF food storage and prep. One area that will need to be a key staple is bread, for which one needs wheat, a hand...
  9. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Hi all :) OK, so my first 20kg sack of milling wheat, and the hand-cranked grain mill arrived today. In the spirit of true preparedness, and under the principals of learning to use and work with what you stock, I started work on my very first loaf of bread using home-ground flour (although I...

    Here's a quick break-making tip that I learned today....if you make a batch of bread that you aren't going to serve for a meal immediately, you can take the loaf/loaves out of the oven a little early - when they are cooked, but haven't quite reached that nice, golden brown color. Then, at...
