In the post-wonder bread era, most North Americans don’t know quite how to think about bread. We want the chewy texture and rich crumbs and whole grains of artisinal bread, but have been spoiled by the long shelf life that the preservatives in national brands offer.
What if there were some way to always have fresh AND healthful, tasty artisan bread on hand?
Turns out, there is. “ARTISAN BREAD IN FIVE MINUTES A DAY taught busy people how to make great bread at home, with only five minutes of active preparation time. Now, HEALTHY BREAD IN FIVE MINUTES A DAY whips up fabulous breads made with more whole grains, fruits and vegetables. The secret? Mix up a lightning-fast batch of moist no-knead dough, save it in your refrigerator, tear off portions over the next week or more, shape, and bake.”
Some of us at ManMade have tried this a few times, and it totally works!
