You know what's weird about bread?

When you bake it yourself, it doesn't go bad in less than week (unlike the store bought stuff). Why do they add all the crap to the store bought stuff then? How old is their stuff? Weird shit. Sourdough may not be as trendy now, but it's part of my routine. Glad I learned this skill.

I've started making bread, too - not the kind you knead, as my skin is very sensitive to touching flour. I slice it up, store it in the freezer, and love the flavour. Plus no additives. I do whole wheat bread - it makes the best French toast!

Tradition

Bread is 4 ingredients, flour, yeast, salt and clean water. The secret ingredient is time.

The taste comes from 6 to 8 hours of fermentation, with folding and resting in 20 minutes multiples. They add stuff because 6 to 8 hours is a loooooong time to wait, so they hope to trick you.

If you want fresh bread in the morning, do the math and see what working hours a breadmaker has to work.

Nothing is new under the sun... and I'm so happy we're rediscovering the past traditions. They are traditions for a reason, and more and more I have an aversion to "new things".

Come again! Does anyone remember thick-sliced, freshly baked bread with fresh pats of butter?

Of course it'll go bad on the counter in a week, I always store it in the fridge and it'll keep for weeks

That bread goes bad quicker in the fridge.

that is because you put all these semi plastic ingredients in there. buy a bun from McDonalds, keep it on the window sill, a year later it will look good as new still.

My experience has been that store bought, brand name bread has a lot of preservatives and I'm surprised at how long it lasts, doesn't seem normal. But the bakery bread/ organic bread without better be in the fridge or it will be mouldy pretty quickly. I'd still prefer the bakery though. I don't make bread.
