In gathering my thoughts for this week’s program about homemade bread I so wanted to promise you that making your family’s bread would be neat, easy, and delicious. I have tried all the shortcut methods to homemade bread – as you may have – in hopes that I could produce good bread with less work in less time. And less mess, too. Because let’s face it – baking is messy!
There are some very “okay” recipes out there for making bread that looks like it came from a bakery. Unfortunately, most of these are sadly lacking in flavor. I’m not satisfied with “okay” bread. I want good bread. Bread that is a pleasure to eat and that sustains me. So while I cannot promise to offer you bread recipes that are “easy and mess-free!” I can promise that they are delicious. It seems one of the most important ingredients in good bread is… time. And I can offer you some tips to get you thinking about how you can work bread-baking into your life.
