I learned to bake bread from recipes online. So can anyone.
I guess this all misses the point...that another reason crepitus' post was ignorant is that bread is not a health food to begin with.
And warm freshly baked homemade bread is just plain yummy, whereas grocery store bread is blah.You can buy an entire chicken for a reasonable price, roast it and eat if for couple days and then make soup out of the carcass. It's a very economical meal. They sell huge half turkey breasts at our grocery store. I can feed 4 people with that. Frozen veggies are cheap and healthy.
And, a 10lb bag of flour at Walmart is $2.24. There are 34 cups of flour in a 10lb bag. An avg loaf of bread is about 3-4 cup. You can make 8-10 loaves of bread with flour, water, a small amount of yeast, salt and a bit of shortening. I have a 2lb pouch of yeast in my freezer. You can make bread for pennies. It really isn't that hard when you get the hang of it.
A 2lb pouch of yeast is 32 oz. Those yeast packs are 2 1/4 teaspoons = 0.25 ounces. This pouch is the equivalent of 128 of those small yeast packets they sell at the store.
