    Bread doesn’t get any faster, easier or simpler than this. There are no special ingredients or equipment needed. Just a few minutes in a skillet on the stove and you can have fresh hot bread for sandwiches or to serve with dinner any time of the day without heating the house up with the oven. My Granny would usually make this for lunch if all the breakfast biscuits got gobbled up in the morning. In the days before we all lived air conditioned housed, we didn’t turn the oven on in the middle of the day during Summer. This skillet...

    <p>I don't have an adjoining study or some hardline facts to report alongside this discovery. Just a few seconds of a grocery store during the middle of this global pandemic and honestly it gives me hope.</p><p>It gives me hope that, while panicked, the world is still up to date on Wheat Bread. We're still in arms that it was a fad from the early 2000's to give the food industry a little bump. That we agree that it's dry and shitty and awful and it uniformly makes any sandwich worse.</p>

  • What We Need: Daily Bread...prayer 7

    Give us this day our Daily bread…(Luke 11)We have been learning prayer, according to none less than Jesus. He is the best qualified to teach us to pray, having a perfect and complete knowledge of God; what He requires and desires of men, and of man; His needs, limits, weakness, and our deepest longings. According to the LORD’s prayer, man’s needs are fourfold. We need to pray for our daily bread, as well as to pray for the forgiveness of Sin, and along with that, we must forgive any who have offended us. Finally we must pray for deliverance from...
  • Ireland court rules that Subway's sandwich bread is not legally bread

    LONDON -- Ireland’s Supreme Court has issued a ruling declaring that for the purposes of tax law, the bread served in Subway's hot sandwiches does not actually meet the legal definition of “bread” because of its sugar content and is rather a "confectionary or fancy baked good." The case was brought before the court by Subway franchisee Bookfinders Ltd. which claimed that the bread Subway served qualified as a “staple food,” which, in Ireland, means that the bread would be exempt from value-added tax (VAT), thereby saving Subway money.
  • Court rules Subway sandwiches too sugary to meet legal definition of ‘bread’ (Ireland)

    Ireland’s highest court isn’t sweet on tax breaks for footlongs. The country’s Supreme Court ruled that the starch used in Subway sandwiches is too sugary to meet the definition of “bread” — a legal distinction that would have saved the firm some dough. In deciding whether to give the fast-food chain a tax break for serving a “staple” food item, the five-judge panel ruled that the bread’s sugar-to-flour content is roughly five times too high to qualify, according to the Irish Independent.

    The Atlantic ^ | 8/29/2020 | KERIDWEN CORNELIUS
    Around 2000 B.C., a baker in the ancient Egyptian city of Thebes captured yeast from the air and kneaded it into a triangle of dough. Once baked, the bread was buried in a dedication ceremony beneath the temple of Pharaoh Mentuhotep II on the west bank of the Nile. There the yeast slept like a microbial mummy for four millennia, until 2019. That’s when Seamus Blackley—a physicist and game designer best known for creating the Xbox—suctioned it up with a syringe and revived it in a sourdough starter. Blackley, an amateur Egyptologist, often thinks about this ancient baker as he...

    The Covid-19 pandemic has tightened our social circles and narrowed the scope of our lives in ways no one imagined just a year ago. But the lockdown also brought an unexpected solace: Everyone, it seems, turned to baking sourdough bread. Social media has been overflowing with photos of frothy sourdough starters — many of them named, like a family pet — and the fresh-baked loaves that result. And though peak sourdough may have passed, many a fridge still contains that jar of starter. Most home sourdough bakers know that their starter contains a vibrant herd of microbes, which leaven and...

    Yeast or no yeast, fresh-baked carbs are the comfort food we all need right now.Along with a temporary shortage of all-purpose flour, eggs, and other important ingredients that go in baked goods, you’ll notice it’s hard to find yeast at the grocery store. It seems that a big part of sheltering in place involves back-to-basics comfort food baking, and homemade bread tops the list. While experienced bread bakers might turn to sourdough starters when they can’t find yeast, we wanted to find a way to get our homemade bread fix without that much work. We turned to Jennifer Tyler Lee,...

    It is amazing what has happened to our wheat products in a few short decades. In efforts to increase yield, improve shelf life, and enhance our appetites, modern food producers have taken a staple of our diet (breads and grains) that humans have consumed for millennia with little or no health issues, and turned it into a "Frankenfood". Bread, which was a cheap, nutritious way to fill our stomachs for thousands of years, is now potentially the cause of obesity and a variety of inflammatory diseases. A look at the processes we use to grow, harvest, mill, refine, enrich, and...

    In late February, the Israeli Knesset passed the NGO Funding Transparency Bill by 40 to 34. It had been a long journey for the bill, which despite, its neutered, state was still a declaration of war by the conservative Likud Party against the shadow NGO empire that was the Soros way. While the bill was no longer able to empower the lifting of tax exempt status for foreign funded NGOs and it only addressed foreign funding of NGOs by government entities, it was a major step for foreign funding transparency. The Soros empire had been built on non-transparency, on hidden...

    President Trump’s nomination of Washington, D.C., attorney Daniel Bress to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco was confirmed by the Senate Tuesday on a party-line vote, giving Trump seven appointees to a court he has regularly denounced. On the losing side of the 53-45 vote were California’s Democratic senators, Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, who noted that the seat had been held by a Californian — Alex Kozinski, who retired last December after allegations of sexual misconduct by at least 15 female staffers — and would ordinarily be filled by a Californian. Bress, 40, was born...

    Give us this day our daily foam expander. It may sound odd, but in America, your loaf of bread can contain ingredients with industrial applications – additives that also appear in things like yoga mats, pesticides, hair straighteners, explosives and petroleum products. Some of these chemicals, used as optional whiteners, dough conditioners and rising agents, may be harmful to human health. Potassium bromate, a potent oxidizer that helps bread rise, has been linked to kidney and thyroid cancers in rodents. Azodicarbonamide (ACA), a chemical that forms bubbles in foams and plastics like vinyl, is used to bleach and leaven dough...

    ....snip.... That’s no longer the case. Today, a team of researchers from the University of Copenhagen, the University College London, and the University of Cambridge released a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences detailing their discovery of 14,400-year-old crumbs from a flatbread. The archaeological site, known as Shubayqa 1, is located in the Black Desert of northeastern Jordan and was home to Natufian hunter-gatherers. The flatbread remains are not only the oldest instance of bread found to date, but also preeminent examples of how bread-making existed even before agriculture developed some 4,000 years later. “Nobody had...
  • Scientists Have Discovered The Earliest Evidence of Bread, And It's Much Older Than We Expected

    The people who built the ancient structure, members of what's called the Natufian culture, struggled in a "hostile environment to gain more energy from their food," said Ehud Weiss, an archaeobotanist at Bar-Ilan University in Israel who was not involved with the study. Archaeologists found the bread remains in sediment samples at a site named Shubayqa 1 in Jordan. The structure was oval with a fireplace in the center, and its builders carefully laid stones into the ground. Arranz Otaegui said she did not know whether the building was a dwelling or had other, perhaps ceremonial, purposes. Sifting through the...

    Evening Standard ^ | 11/24 | Harriet Pavey
    It's said to be richer in protein than regular loavesA Finnish bakery has launched what it claims to be the world’s first insect-based bread, made from crushed crickets. Helsinki-based bakery Fazer made the bread using flour ground from dried crickets. Each loaf contains about 70 of the insects, combined with wheat flour and other seeds. At £3.55 (€3.99) a loaf, it is slightly more expensive than a regular wheat loaf which usually sells for about £2 (€2.24). Due to a limited supply of crickets, the insect-bread will initially only be sold in 11 Fazer bakery stores in Helsinki, but the...
  • North German Court Rules Bread Rolls and Coffee Don’t Constitute Breakfast: Report (Taxes)

    According to a court judgement in North Rhine-Westphalia published on Monday, bread rolls and coffee aren’t considered a complete breakfast and therefore not subject to taxation. The ruling, which was made by a tax court in the city of Münster, stated that breakfast does not consist of just bread rolls and hot drinks, it is also accompanied by cold cuts, cheese or spreads, German media reported. Due to the lack of spreads and other types of toppings to accompany the bread rolls, the company in question was not serving a complete breakfast, the tax court found. After a software company...
