    Used the last of 2015 expired bread machine yeast. Worked fine. Used 1-1/2 teaspoons per loaf. When I was a kid they sold blocks of refrigerated yeast in the dairy dept. You broke off a hunk and dissolved it in warm water to bake with. Some old timers would eat it for B vitamins. Live baking...

    I stumbled on this recipe a few years ago and it has become a family staple. I use fresh zucchini in the summertime as well as fresh blueberries but in winter I use frozen zucchini and blueberries. Both ways work great. Two tips: if using fresh zucchini be sure to wring as much water out of it...

    there is a lot of talk about baking bread. soooo much to read, so i hope a new post is okay. i'm not sure why it's so important, other than variety. isn't it easier to just use grains as hot cereal? more nutritious? whole grains store longer. just trying to keep it simple in a complicated...

    I came across this website, that says you can store this bread long term. I am curious if anyone has tried it and how it faired after a period of time? http://www.joscountryjunction.com/totally-amazing-bread-in-a-jar

    My local Aldi had the sealed long-term storage German pumpernickel and rye whole grain breads (17.6 oz loaves) for $.59/loaf. You may want to check out your local Aldi to see because the shelf life is over a year.

    In my stock piles I have hundreds of pounds of flour and sugar, but I don’t want to expel lots of time and energy making complicated bread, especially if there is no electricity. I watched Ray Mears Northern Wilderness and there was a small clip about Bannock. Bannock is a survival bread that...

    Where does yeast come from? (Other than the store...) I make lots of bread and have always used the store bought in a jar or packages of yeast. Can I make or culture my own, or something? If so, how?

    ....bake your own bread. White or wheat. I would prefer to do whole wheat, but the ingredients seem to really add up at the grocery store. More so if you factor in electricity and such. Anyone have an economical way or recipe. Cheap bread here runs about $1.79 a loaf and the good stuff, up to...

    Over the last 40-years, with a few exceptions, I have always bought my bread at stores. I knew generally how to make/bake bread, but just really never did it myself. Wife and I have started baking our own bread (trying to get back to basics), and have had successes and failures. One thing we...

    I enjoy baking bread. I use several different recipes and methods to include a bread machine, regular bread pan, on a oven rock, in a glass covered casserole dish and now a cast iron dutch oven. I have had really good success with the method from the New York Times... but, I've only used glass...

    Yeast is a living thing, so it isn't really good for a long time. Maybe a year. I am a baker, but I don't make sourdough bread. I went online and got the recipe for the sourdough starter and the bread recipes. I figure that if I cannot buy yeast that I can still make bread with a starter...

    I was taught to start sourdough by my father whose uncle had been a 'sourdough' gold-miner. To begin a new batch of starter: Set out a mason jar with a 1/4 cup of milk and 2 Tbl sugar in it. Put the jar our on the forest floor with access to flies and critters. Watch the jar so it does not get...

Then I plan on trying to use a grain mill later to try out some of the bulk wheat, ect.. Do you have some recomendations on websites or books on the subject. I...
