Today is National Homemade Bread Day!

Today is National Homemade Bread Day, so I thought I'd share a favorite recipe for baguettes! I received baguette pans one year for Christmas, so I found a recipe on-line which I use, but I do not steam the bread - I like a soft crust, not crunchy. I know, not a "true" baguette, but it is tasty for sure! You will find the recipe at this link.

Let's look at some fun bread facts, did you know . . . 

  • Bread is one of the only foods that eaten by people of every race, region and culture.
  • Breaking bread is a universal sign of peace.
  • Egyptians were the first to add yeast to bread, transforming it from a flat bread to something lighter.
  • It takes 9 seconds for a combine to harvest enough wheat to make about 70 loaves of bread.
You will find more bread facts at this link.

Clearly the best way to celebrate National Homemade Bread Day is by making some bread at home, so gather the ones you love, the ingredients, and make some bread! It really isn't difficult, and it is a fun thing you are able to do with your grands - let them do the kneading - and of course the tasting of the freshly baked, from the oven bread!

Keep a camera handy and enjoy your bread!
