Bread for a Year
If you only had one food to eat-bread-do you have enough to make a loaf of bread every day to live on in your food storage? Wendy DeWitt figured it all out and here it is:
2C white wheat (3C Flour),
1C water,
1 1/2 tsp salt,
2TB melted shortening,
One of the following: ¼ C Applesauce, ¼ C sugar, or ¼ C honey
2tsp yeast.
Warm the water and add yeast. Set aside. Mix flour, salt and sugar. Add the yeast water, melted shortening and knead until smooth and elastic. Shape into loaf, place in greased pan, cover and let rise until doubled. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
Total supplies needed for one year:
61 #10 cans of white wheat
23 gallons of water
4 2/3 containers of salt
19 pounds of shortening
45 pounds of sugar
5 pounds of yeast
