Re: This bread recipe could be the difference between starving and eating in the times ahead.
It's also good to try it out now. I am a professional baker and can tell you that it works, it's easy and tastes like bread should!

I like to experiment with adding herbs to the dough like garlic and onion powder, oregano, basil, thyme etc. Tried raisins and cinnamon...fantastic!

Have also made this in an outdoor clay oven and yay!

* 1 1/2 tablespoons yeast
* 1 1/2 tablespoons salt coarse salt.
* 3 cups water
* 6.5 cups flour ( I like 1/2 and 1/2 white and cracked wheat), more for dusting dough.
* Cornmeal

1. In a large bowl (I use a pail and a loosely applied lid), mix yeast and salt into 3 cups warm water. Add flour, and stir to combine completely. Let dough rise in a warm place for at least two hours, until it rises and collapses (up to 5 hours – or even overnight won’t hurt it). The dough may be baked at this point, or refrigerated for later use.

2. Cover dough, but make sure it is not airtight – gases need to escape – and place in fridge. When you are ready to use it, throw a small fistful of flour on the surface and use a serrated knife to cut off a piece of the size you desire. (recommend a 1 pound loaf – which means cutting off grapefruit-sized piece of dough). Turning the dough in your hands, stretch the surface of the dough and tuck in under. The surface will be smooth, and the bottom with be bunched.

3. Dust a pizza peel (or any flat surface – I use a rimless cookie sheet) with cornmeal. (This prevents sticking, and adds a nice, rustic crunch. You can use flour instead, but you’ll need to use a very generous dusting). Allow dough to rest in a warm place for 40 minutes – longer (up to an hour and a half) if you use some whole wheat flour in place of the white, or if you make a larger loaf.

4. Twenty minutes before baking, preheat oven to 450 degrees with baking stone (or overturned baking sheet) inside on the middle rack, plus a shallow pan on the top rack. Throw a small fistful of flour over the dough, slash it 2-4 times with a serrated knife (in a cross, a tic-tac-toe, or a fan), and slide it into the oven, onto the baking stone. Throw 1-2 cups of tap water into the shallow pan, and quickly shut the oven door to trap steam inside. Bake for 30 minutes, or until crust is well browned and bread sounds hollow when you knock on the bottom.

Yes, gave credit and a link. I have also tweaked it 180 degrees with my version in this thread but this is a basic starter for those new to baking.

What variations have you tried?

Thanks, OP! I have been up half the night writing these recipes down as well as instructions for the earth oven that was linked to on page one.

One thing to keep in mind for when shtf, with all these delicious bread recipes, you will actually gain weight while your neighbors are starving. Word of advice, don't go parading your stuffed gut around town or the locals will know you've got food! Pace yourself, feed your immediate neighbors in need and, just to throw the roving bands of scavengers off your "scent", act just as starved as everyone else if government assistance comes to your area.

Folks will notice whose NOT there when the food truck arrives and just may decide to pay you a little visit! BLEND IN! And, for goodness sake, DO YOUR BAKING UPWIND whenever possible! Starving people have a very keen sense of smell and the smell of baking bread is irresistable when your FULL, imagine if you haven't eaten in 4 days! It's not worth losing a limb over!

How To Make An Earth Oven: [link to www.google.com]

Recipe scaled-down-- made as needed, no fridge necessary. Bake it all, and save a loaf or two... barter/sell the rest.

Also worth knowing: A good sourdough starter, fed properly, keeps fine in a Mason jar set in a bowl of water in a cool, dark cupboard in a southern US home with no AC in Summer for at least four days, from my own experience. I baked bread every day in a power outage. If you have a spring house, or a root cellar, this dough will overnight fine in a covered bowl. Put its covered contained in the water-- not covering it, or in a root cellar-- put its bowl in a larger bowl of water. Anything like this, if kept at under 60-degrees F will overnight just fine.

Excellent bread recipe!

Does anyone have advice on keeping yeasts alive when the power goes out?
 Quoting: Monkeyfister


Research wild yeast. Yeast spores are actually floaring around your head right now-they are dispered naturally in the air. You can start your own "starter" with flour water and sugar. Warmth helps the naturally occurring yeast to develop and grow.

This from: [link to joejaworski.com]

To capture wild yeast, place one cup of bread flour and one cup of water in a glass jar. Cover the jar with a fine mesh (a knee-hi stocking works well) to let air in but keep bugs out. Place the jar outside where it can receive some fresh air and some breezes. Best location is a shady spot. Let it set for three or four days. Stir one or twice a day. If it is cool outside ( 35F(2C) to 60F(16C) ) you will see very little or very low activity in your starter until you bring it indoors and warm it up. If it is less than 35 deg F, wait until warmer weather before trying to capture yeast. If the starter turns pink or dark grey in color, it has become moldy and you should discard it.



If you see no bubbles in the mixture after a few days, discard it and try again. If you see lots of bubbles in the surface of the mixture, congratulations! Feed the yeast with another cup of flour / water mixture and let it ferment indoors for another 12 hours or so. After that, try an experimental loaf. Even though you may not live in a place famous for sourdough, you will be surprised how tasty native yeast can be.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 668442


You are awesome! I have 500lbs of wheat-berries, a hand grinder, tons of salt, died milk, honey and dried yeast but I had no idea how to make the yeast myself. Thank you!!

RAW BREAD! Sun baked. Sprout any grains you wish until they little sprout just breaks through. drain carefully and then grind up in whatever you have to grind in. Good reason to have some sort of grinder that does not use electricity. Work in salt and yeast as your grind it. By the way, I think I need to get a mechanical grinder.

if the mess is too wet ad a bit of flour if you have some. shape into thin easy to use pieces and dry in the sun. will work.

I was trying to remember how many coals go on the top of the dutch oven to achieve a certain temperature. Isn't it 14 coals for a temp of 350 degrees? (which is the temp I use to bake my bread)

I've tried my bread at 400 degrees for the first half and then drop to 350 for the remaining. Find it makes a nice crust! As for the coals, Can someone weigh in on this? Would be good to know.

Great thread OP! So glad you kept it alive or I would have missed it. Well done!

I have been dehydrating and storing food for awhile now and then began looking for recepies and what to do with whole grains etc.

Here is a great site with lots of info on dehydrating and storing foods with lots of resourses linked. I especially love the LDS cannery links where you can buy food at cost and can in #10 cans at their location for a small donation.

[link to www.dehydrate2store.com]


This Lady (Tammy) has a fantastic recipe for Bread that I have made several times and absolutely love it! I make several batches and freeze the dough and make it as I need it.


[link to www.dehydrate2store.com]




I made a New Years resolution that I would make my own bread for the next year and so far have had no problems keeping it.

Another good bread making site that I found is here:


[link to www.youtube.com]


Videos about sour dough starters and a lot more.

That led me into beer making........another new endevor.
Seeing how beer is basically liquid bread (plus hops) and bread is basically solid beer (minus hops).

Thanks again friend!

Just to add...

My dad used to can wild meat in the old fashioned mason jars. A few years ago, he passed away and us kids had to go and clear things up. Down in the cellar and presto! He was still canning meat!

Not only wild but pork, beef etc. Found one jar that was 7 yrs old. Looked nasty on the outside, rusted lid, scratched jar and such.

My sister and I looked at each other and said, "Why the hell not?" So we opened it. Inside was just as I remembered, looked the same, smelled the same and the texture was like day one.

Should we? 7 years? hmmmm....we did! No problem, delicious and not a hint of nastiness that you would expect after 7 yrs.!

So, my point is, CAN MEAT if you can. It works and is delicious. We used to open a beef jar when we were young, put it in tomato sauce with the spices, pasta and viola!

Just passing it along.

Good luck all!

How's this for a bread recipe? While you're baking bread I'll sniff the air for a bread scent. When I smell it, I'll sneak up to where you are and cap your ass and take your bread!
