Anyone in here make their own bread? I've had a bread maker for over 6 months now, and I highly prefer homemade bread to any of the bread in the store now!

wndranne: It's Aunt Millie's Multi-Grain Bread. And the first ingredient is wheat flour. So I guess it is refined. Well, my parents can eat it if they want. I'm getting something else.

Sorry to be chiming in late here, but I have spent alot of time trying to decide which bread to buy. I was buying breads that only had whole wheat as the first ingredient on the label. Then DH was told to cut out all HFCS and much to my chagrin I found that it is quite difficult to find a bread that meets our (now) 3 main criteria
1) WW
2) no HFCS
3) no peanuts, tree nuts, or made anywhere on equipment that may have touched them
...and one I forgot

4) doesn't cost an arm and a leg!

We found Vitabee at Fred Meyer to be a pretty good solution (we live in the PNW). I would like to get away from other preservatives, tho'.

Has anyone tried to bake Ezekiel bread? Our naturopath recommended that bread, but I just can't get past the price. I do bake bread, but don't have any experience with sprouted grains. My food coop sells the grain in bulk...I guess I need to do some research.

I'm glad I am not the only one who spends this much time thinking about bread, lol!

My local Trader Joe's carries Ezekiel bread and it is much cheaper than the grocery store or Whole Foods.

Alvardo St makes several sprouted grain breads and here in Colorado, they are cheaper than Ezekiel.

I found a recipe for Ezekiel bread on Bob's Redmill.comI would need to get a grain mill attachment for my Kitchenaid to grind up the ingredients, but other than that it looks pretty easy. No kneading....my kind of bread baking

I wonder if I could "mill" the grains and beans in my Cuisinart? I may try it soon as an experiment.

For the ezekiel bread.. that you buy at the store.. I find it in the freezer. So far I have kept it in the freezer just because I only eat it once and a while as a snack (cinnamon raisin kind). Last time I tried heating it up though I had no idea if I should defrost it and then pop it in the toaster oven? haha any one have this problem? I think next time I'll try just popping it in the toaster oven first.

For the money issue, see if there's a bakery outlet in your area. I pick up organic 100% whole grain bread that doesn't have HFCS etc. in it for 89 cents. It's the Aunt Millie's bakery.
