Home-Made Bread – It’s Easier than you Think!

Slice of bread with heart cut-out in the middleNothing beats home-made bread, and it’s much easier to make than you think. Home-made bread costs about half the cost of store-bought bread, and is healthier because it doesn’t contain all those icky additives and preservatives. If you make your own, you can probably afford to upgrade to organic ingredients, which is better for you and for the planet. Home-made bread doesn’t require any packaging, which is also better for the planet.

My bread

I love the Bread in Five Minutes a Day method (Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking), which uses no-knead, quick and simple recipes. You prepare the dough in advance, and you can keep it in your fridge for up to two weeks. When you need a fresh loaf, you just cut off a portion of dough and bake up a loaf. However, I usually bake up the whole batch at once, and freeze the loaves not needed immediately in a big re-usable plastic container. That way, I only have to use the oven once, and that saves energy. Here is a picture of my home-made bread.
