More about Bread

I could talk about bread all day...and sometimes it seems like I do on this blog. I guess it's because it's probably the thing I make most often on a regular basis and I like to share what I've learned about it. So today I read this Deseret News Article where the author posted a friend's bread recipe. It's whole-wheat which immediately sparked my interest. It's actually a very similar recipe to the one I use all the time. It had milled flax seed as one of the ingredients so I decided to add it when I made bread today. I used 2 Tbsp of flax seed that I had ground in a blender (you're not supposed to grind flax seed in your regular grain mill because it has too much oil and could damage your mill). The bread turned out delicious with the same taste, but the texture was enhanced by the addition of the milled flax seed. Flax seed is also very healthy for you so I think I'll be including this into my recipe more often.

I have been adding ground flax to my bread for a coulple of months now and I agree it gives the bread a better texture, I add about 1/4 cup per loaf and my family loves it. I picked up a cheap coffee grinder and it works great for flaxseed.

Wow your blog is so fun! I LOVE baking bread and I have tons of whole wheat flour stored away. I got it from shelfreliance.com and it last for like 5 years! You should check out the website becuase they have so much stuff for food storage like: freeze-dried/dehydrated food, survival gear & kits, and shelves to organize everything in! They even have a sale going on right now. You are going to LOVE it!! Let me know what you think :)

Kelly, wow you're definitely two steps ahead of me. I'll try adding even more flax meal next time. Thanks for the tip on the coffee grinder - that's great to know!

Pamela, I have heard of shelfreliance, but I've never checked out their website. Thanks for the tip.
