  • The awful thing about bread, is the glyphosate residue. Farmers spray it on just before harvest to dry out the wheat, to save on the cost of grain dryers. 
    Awful Chorleywood recipe.  I have recently bought a second hand Panasonic bread maker and I've also managed to buy reduced wheatgerm and rye strong bread flour and French bread flour from a farm shop.  Makes lovely bread.  I don't suppose it works out any cheaper but it tastes delicious.

    Can you slice it though? Mine would come out looking like that, but cutting it was like sawing through a brick.

    So much to read, so little time.
  • Ooh are we showing pictures of homemade bread?

    re slicing, we use electric bread knife which works very well to slice our lovely Panasonic bread, which we only make once a fortnight as we scoff the lot at once which is not good.

    Ditto re electric knife, ideal for HM bread

  • If you need a power tool to cut it, then I worry about my teeth!

    It is not because it is hard, in fact the opposite.  A hand bread knife just squashes and tears it, the opposing action of the 2 blades of an electric carving knife prevents it from tearing apart.
  • Slicing no problem with the correct knife.  I have found that it needs to cool completely otherwise the slices crumble

    I’ve had 2 bread makers neither ever produced a decent loaf whatever I used or did.
  • Really?  Who needs bread?  What for?  Don't see why if you are home cooking.  Use veg or potatoes to mop up sauce.

    (yes being a devil's advocate but I am really interested as I used to walk with 2 females whose extra bread was used to feed the ducks - lots of it too!)
