how to make bread

  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...

    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 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.

    I am going to start trying to bake my own bread. I will likely use store bought ingridents first untill I find a couple recipies I like. 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...

    I posted on another thread about dutch ovens, but I thought I should put something in this section. I made bread from a recipe off of youtube. Super simple and very good tasting bread if you don't burn the bottom.:D: I recommend trying this out, especially if you have children or are baking...

    Greetings, Anyone ever tried this? http://beprepared.com/product.asp?pn=FS%20G610 Is it the whole thing needed to prepare bread that you just add water, "mold it with your hands" and cook it and voila! bread! Thank you

    Greetings, all. Does anyone have a simple bread/biscuit recipe that can be made from stored (read dehydrated) ingredients? I am attempting to store a variety of different foodstuffs in five gallon buckets and need to know what to store to make the bread. Thanks in advance:thumb:

    I've got some 20" x 30" mylar plastic bags with o2 absorbers. I use about 1500cc of o2 absorber per bag. Each bag has either a) (1) 20lbs bag of rice and (2) 8lbs bags of pinto beans or b) (5) 5# bags of bread flour and enough yeast to use with that much flour. I think the beans and rice will...

    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...

    I'd like to start milling my own grain and baking my own bread. However, I want to ensure that whatever methods, recipes, grain storage methods I use are workable in a situation where I may have limited or no power. What if I can't power an electric grain mill? What if I don't have access to...

    I made a version of Ezekiel bread this evening. This is a very good survival food and one very simple way to use up your stores of grains. This is my own version. I took equal parts of Red Wheat, Barley, Millet, Spelt, Quinoa and Pinto beans. I put them all in a container of water for about 10...
