Pre-Mixed and Pre-Measured, Premium, All Natural Bread Mixes

Just add Mix and Water to your Bread Machine

 

 

Basic information about Ingredients: -(it varies by flavor)

All Natural High Quality and Fresh Ingredients.

Premium King Arthur Flour, an All Natural, Non brominated, and Non GMO flour, Fair Trade Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Yeast, Sea Salt, (We try to use as little salt as possible. You may want to add more salt) and then some combination of spices, herbs and dried fruits.

 

The outer paper and plastic bag is made from recycled material and has a special biodegradable plastic liner. If you remove the metal strip, the bag is compost-able.

 

Storage, Best if you store the mix in a cool dry place. You can even refrigerate or freeze it to extend its shelf life, but let it warm to room temperature before using.

The mixes should last at least 60 days, more if kept cool and dry, but we hope you will use them up sooner and come back for more or share them with your friends. They make great gifts.

Donít be worried if the ingredients in the bag donít seem mixed, as we measure the ingredients for each bag separately to insure the proper blend. They will mix in the mixing process. Some of the bags are in two parts; just follow the extra instructions on the bag.

 

Three ways to make the bread

 

Method 1. Bread Machine

1. The only thing you need to do is measure and add the water to your machine and then the contents of the bag of mix and press Start. You then need let the bread cool some before slicing it or it is too soft.

Water quality and temperature can have an effect on the bread. More precisely the yeast that makes the bread rise.

If your water has too much chlorine in it, it may kill the yeast and the bread wonít rise. If that is the case, use bottled water or boil your water for 5 minutes, then let it cool, as water over 140 degrees Fahrenheit will also kill the yeast.

The amount of water is also important. Because of the large amount of herbs and spices in our recipes, each one requires a different amount of water. We test mix each batch, so the label instructions may be different for each batch. If there is not enough water in your bread machine, it will make a knocking sound. Add water one tablespoon at a time and give it a minute or so to blend in, before adding another tablespoon. If your bread dough seems too loose, donít worry; you only need firm dough if you are going to make freestanding loaves. In a bread machine, it doesnít matter too much if the dough is a little thin. You may bake it a bit longer and remember to use less water next time.



Method 2. Stand Mixer, with a Dough hook

1. See method 1 about water quality, temperature and amount.

2. Pour mix and warm water (80 to 120 Degree F) into mixing bowl.

3. Mix for 10 minutes or more at low speed.

4. Pour dough in a greased loaf pan or coat it with cooking spray. Let the dough rise in a warm place (75-100 Degrees F) for 40 minutes or more. You can also let it rise for 5 minutes, then put it to sleep in your refrigerator to use later.

5. Preheat oven to 350 F.

6. Bake 40 to 50 minutes, depending on your oven.

7. Let cool on a wire rack. You will be tempted to rip off a hot piece, but please give it five minutes to rest.
