~Home Made Bread * On the Rise is a workshop presented by Christoff Bemis of Birdsfoot Farm that will cover the basics of making a whole grain bread recipe or two - including fun extras you can employ like nuts and oats!
Making your own bread is easy, fun, and puts you in control of what ingredients you are feeding your family. Check out most commercial bread labels - they contain sugar and many other "unnecessary" items!
"Additives are used in commercial breads for various reasons. Antioxidants prevent spoiling and extend shelf life; dough conditioners achieve a desired texture; sweeteners are used for flavor enhancement and to retain moisture. These additives usually have scary chemical names, and some may indeed be quite harmful to human health."
With a little help from your friends at the Co-op and a couple of good recipes under your belt, you can take back another piece of your dietary health, and have a whole lot of fun creating yummy bread, fresh from the oven...
Presenter Christoff Bemis is a local baker and member of Birdsfoot intentional community.
