I run my own farm and plant my own wheat by hand. Then I purchased a millstone from a family of quarry workers who have owned the local quarry for seven generations, and milled my own flour. Only after that, do I bake my own bread. None of y'all know what good bread is.

I just make my bread from scratch with whole wheat flour. Less salt and other things than if I were to buy it at the store.

Fark hipsters sideways with a rusty spork.

That said, I'm going to try my hand at making some bread out of the ancient grains after making the flour in a food processor.  I already make my own nut flour and meals for energy bars and cookies.  Making it for bread will just be another day in the kitchen.  As a bonus I, not some nameless exec at BlandFoodInc, will choose exactly what my bread is.

What exactly does "steel cut" oats mean?  Are oats that are cut with a steel blade somehow healthier than if the blade were made of -- say -- titanium?  ...and wouldn't steel be the default material to make industrial cutting equipment out of anyway, given that it's far cheaper than almost any other competing material?

My bread has so much whole grain it's just chunks of wheat plants pressed together.
 
2014-04-15 04:15:22 PM  
But are the ingredients mixed with love by an artisanal baker using old-world methods and equipment? How many different types of grains are used?  Are the grains grown locally, and if so can you provide the address of the farm so I can speak to the farmer?  I have some more very important questions about this bread I need answered.

Steel cut oats are different from rolled oats. That's your choices. Rolled oats cook really fast (that's what Americans think of when they think oatmeal). Steel cut oats take much longer to cook; that's what Scottish porridge is made from. Very different texture.

/I've tried steel cut oats; not enough better than regular rolled oats to justify the extra time.

I recently tried some Ezekiel bread, which is made primarily of sprouted grains. I guess it's supposed to be good for you but the only way I could stomach it was to *toast it and put some peanut butter on it. And unless you keep it in the refrigerator it will be moldy in two days. Other than that I guess it was OK.

*It doesn't really "toast". It just gets warm.

As someone that has met the farmers that grow as well as mill the wheat that is used in his kitchen, I'm getting a big kick.

No, seriously, they're actually local.

What you're missing from that link is that since Oregon banned field burning, more turf seed farmers have wanted to turn to grains, but previously the logistics of shipping that wheat to be milled a couple hundred miles away ate into profits.

I've decided that if I make it that long, it's cigarettes, alcohol, and opiates for me.

Until I am good and ready to go.

Hopefully, I will have retained enough of a circle of friends who will supply me with those vices.

This is why I work out and do my best to eat healthfully/low fat. It's quality of life. I know much of it is up to chance; but I want to do everything I can to have the best quality of life possible right up until the end. If I end up bedridden for 20 years on the way, like someone said a couple posts back, pass the opiates and remote.

If you have some kind of issue, just stay away from it. It worked growing up, and if some of the sickly kids didn't make it, so be it. If you or one of your kids has a problem eating some stuff, the marketplace will make the determination, and the price point, too.  rowing up, we used to have a friend that grew a lot of her own stuff, and she seemed fine. Granted, this was in the '70s, things have changed since then.

The article references Great Harvest Bread Company's Dakota bread. I love that stuff and buy it (or their honey whole wheat) all the time. I'm actually not big into "artisanal" breads, but the stuff from Great Harvest is a whole different deal. The bread is very dense but soft. In my opinion it's too dense for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but it's amazing for toast, grilled cheese, dipping into soups, or for many gourmet style sandwiches. It's not good for everything, but it's very good for a lot of things.

It sounds crazy, but if I have my kids eat something on a slice of bread from Great Harvest, they'll calm down and be better behaved than if I give them some other kind of bread/snack/etc. And for me it gives me sustained energy for hours. Not trying to be snooty -- everyone has different tastes -- but I love the stuff from Great Harvest. Glad to see them getting some good press!

Phil Clinton: Pincy: anuran: Dave's Killer Bread. That's all there is to say

Have to agree.  It has ruined me for all other bread.

This and this.


I bought my first loaf last week, I never thought  spending five dollars on a loaf of bread would be such a value.  This is seriously good stuff.

LazyMedia: jshine: What exactly does "steel cut" oats mean?  Are oats that are cut with a steel blade somehow healthier than if the blade were made of -- say -- titanium?  ...and wouldn't steel be the default material to make industrial cutting equipment out of anyway, given that it's far cheaper than almost any other competing material?

Steel cut oats are different from rolled oats. That's your choices. Rolled oats cook really fast (that's what Americans think of when they think oatmeal). Steel cut oats take much longer to cook; that's what Scottish porridge is made from. Very different texture.

/I've tried steel cut oats; not enough better than regular rolled oats to justify the extra time.


I only eat obsidian cut oats. It's the Mayan way, and the resulting gas gives me more power over my Aztec enemies.

Not to mention, when you eat oatmeal cut with dragonglass, your farts will kill white walkers.

tfudtuckerpucker: Some unethical bread makers simply add caramel food coloring to white bread, and label it "wheat bread", so it looks somewhat like whole wheat bread.



My view is: if you can flatten an entire loaf to 1/2" thick by pressing on it, it's not real bread.

I have such a weakness for carbs (bread, beer, pasta, etc) that I really need to curb, so the more rustic the bread, the better off I am.

/Have to give a shout-out to Le Bus as their multi-grain tastes good and can actually be used for sandwiches
//not the best bread I've ever had, but the best I can get with little effort.

give me doughnuts: I'm 7th level vegan.
I don't eat food that casts a shadow.

But go ahead and enjoy your bread, murderer.

Me too. My stomach has no tolerance for bleached white flour but I can eat Dave's. Sin Dawg? Deliciousness!
Rainier Organic Bakery has excellent Sasquatch and Ezekial breads.

It's a shame that it costs $23 bucks to get 2 loafs shipped to NC.


What part of NC are you in? There are some killer bakeries in most reasonably sized cities.

In Durham, 9th Street Bakery, Loaf, and the Farmer's Market have some amazing selections.

I'm in Marshall, outside of Asheville.  We have bakeries in the area that are great but they are hit and miss on my requirements.  My girlfriend is allergic to soy and it seems that a lot of bakers just can't keep themselves from using vegetable oil (soy oil) or soy flour or protein.  It's a pain in the ass to find decent bread and almost impossible to find decent hamburger or hot dog buns that are sans soy.

The craft bakeries are USUALLY better but there are a lot of people who just don't quite understand soy allergies.  I get a lot of "Oh, I'm on a gluten free diet as well" and "We don't use soy in our bread, just good 'ol wholesome vegetable oil".

I'll have to try out that place in Raleigh when I'm down again though.

For instance, although I like that bread, it contains lots of soy, so it's yet another no-go for the gf.  :-(

I know that my needs are different than most, but looking at the above ingredients makes me slightly irritated.

Great bread only requires flour, yeast, egg, salt, and beer (or water).  Just sayin.

Maybe saying saying "cut" might suggest it was cut with an inferior grain.  Perhaps cutting with iron equipment squashes rather than slices the grains.  Perhaps it was originally a term used for marketing or suggesting higher quality.  In any case, there is a distinct difference.  From Wikipedia:

Steel-cut oats are whole grain groats (the inner portion of the oat kernel) which have been cut into pieces. They are commonly used in Scotland and Ireland to make porridge, whereas rolled oats are used in England, other English-speaking countries, and Scandinavia.
Steel-cut oats take longer to cook than instant or rolled oats due to their minimal processing, typically 15-30 minutes (less, if pre-soaked). The flavor of the cooked oats is described as being nuttier than other types of oats, and they are also chewier.

And that's very important these days, what with winter coming and all.
