What makes this classic bread better than other wheat breads

This is not your ordinary whole wheat bread, it's made with potato flour and lots of sweet milk. The potato flour gives it just a hint of rustic flavor, almost sourdough. And the milk is a sweetener--lactose--and the combination is delightful. Potato flour is hygroscopic, that is, it absorbs moisture from the air instead of drying out as wheat flour does. It stays fresher, longer. The result is a tempting loaf that is tender and moist with the nutty taste of fresh ground wheat. It's better tasting than other whole wheat breads.

How to Store Bread

What do you do with your crusty bread?

If you put it in a plastic bag, it sweats, and that nice crust gets soggy. Not good. If you put it in a paper bag, the correct thing to do, it will keep your bread crusty, but the bread will stale in a day or so.

What’s the answer? Slice what you don’t think you’re going to use in the first day and freeze it. Slip a waxed paper piece between the slices so that they don’t freeze together. When you want another slice of that fine sourdough bread, pull it out and toast it. The chewy crust isn't as good as fresh, but close.

I’m in the mood for a grilled cheese sandwich on Heritage Wheat Bread. What do I do?

You should have an assortment of your favorite breads in the freezer. Go dig a couple of slices from the freezer, thaw them, and make your sandwich. You can thaw the bread in your toaster.

Better yet, you can freeze that grilled cheese sandwich.

Thaw your sandwich and then heat it in the microwave for 40 to 50 seconds or until the interior is warm, about 160 degrees. If you want to “crunchy-up” the crust again, place the warm sandwich on a preheated griddle or in a preheated skillet for 45 to 60 seconds.

Tips for Storing

  • Press the air from the bag before freezing.
  • Date and write the type of bread on the bag.
  • Use your frozen sliced bread within 2 months.
  • Never refrigerate bread. Cold accelerates staling.
  • You can freshen a slice of bread by toasting. Heat refreshes bread.

Directions for use in the oven

  1. Place the mix in your stand-type mixer along with the yeast and melted butter or oil (if called for on package directions). Add water. Use 110°F water instead of 80°F!
  2. With the dough hook, mix slowly until the dough ball forms. Turn the speed to medium high and mix for five to ten minutes until the gluten forms and the dough becomes stretchy and elastic.
  3. Place the dough in a large greased bowl, cover, and let rise until doubled, about one hour, depending on room temperature.
  4. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Turn the dough onto a lightly greased or floured work area and form your loaf. Place your dough in a 9 x 5-inch pan or other pan and let rise until the size has doubled and bubbles are about to surface.
  5. When the bread has raised, place the loaf on the center rack of the oven. Bake for 35 minutes or until the bread is done. The internal temperature should reach 190°F. Remove the loaf from the pan and let it cool slightly before slicing.

NOTE: If you make this bread in your bread machine, water temperature is critical. Please use a thermometer to measure water at 80 degrees and we'll guarantee the bread. If you are baking the bread in the oven, use water that is 110°F.

Superb bread

This is an excellent mix! Great taste, even rising, consistent cell structure and over lovely texture! New favorite! (And I always get the best performance in my bread machine when I heat my water to 120 deg F then add my butter in small slices to melt it - then add the yeast when the water is 100 deg F - then dissolve the yeast in the butter-water mixture before adding to the dry mix in the machine.)

Great taste and look

I made this for the first time and took it to a diner I was invited to. It was such as hit that everyone was asking me for "my recipe".
