I thought the hipsters were all about the "gluten free" garbage now, all pretending to have health issues they don't actually have for attention?

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.

You also have to eat it in the car on the way home before it goes stale.

JoieD'Zen: Some people have to put labels on things or categorize them in order to understand them. Idiots.


If we didn't put labels on things or categorize them, everything would be filed under "miscellaneous". Just sayin'.

According to this article, if you stick some whole grains on the oustside of your bread, it makes it healthy. I think i'll try this on some cinnabons.

bikerbob59: bmr68: LazyMedia: Bread makes you fat.

Bread does not make you fat. Being lazy makes you fat.

A pair of sneakers and 30 minutes a day.

OK, I'm waiting.  And then what?


Then you get plantar fasciitis.

Mad_Radhu: FTGodWin: vudukungfu: Lack of comments due to gluten intolerance in this thread is disgusting.
Just thought I would get that out of the way.

Grain makes you stupid.

I offer the last 6000 years of civilization as a refutation of his premise. Grain is pretty much why we have learning to begin with, and without it we'd be squatting in caves wondering what monster tried to eat the moon last night.


Nuh uh, the guy with the book to sell says so. He wouldn't lie for profit would he?

That's why I drink my grains in the form of beer.

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.

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.

Smeggy Smurf: That Guy Jeff: I thought the hipsters were all about the "gluten free" garbage now, all pretending to have health issues they don't actually have for attention?

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.


"Fark hipters!", says hipster.

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.

Why did the hipster burn his tongue?

Because he drank his coffee before it was cool.

/Thank you, I'd be here all night.
