I just made 2 loaves of bread for the weekend from using Grandma's Recipe! Thank you Suzanne! It's the best!

Used my deep dish  stone for the one loaf and the 2nd I used a regular loaf pan. I didn't know whether or not I would like it without the addition of milk or eggs . Oh, the texture is great, slices great and I can feel  myself wanting to hide this bread from my family. What is happening to me? I'm taking a loaf to my daughter's tonite for supper and I had to sample it to make sure that it was okay to take- in the interest of science! Very excellent!!

That's great!  Alanna, try it with water instead and you may find you like it.  For every day bread, that's what I use.  It's the best!

I bought bread last week for the first time in ages...can't even remember the last loaf I bought and I have to make bread tomorrow as we have only a slice or two left.  I wasn't feeling really well and decided to forgo the baking...but now I'm better and ready to rock and roll...dough that is...

I just came back from my daughter's house and the bread was a definite hit with everyone. She made a deer roast with homemade mashed taters,gravy, vegetable  I took also a homemade chocolate cake .Been in the kitchen all day but the bread was defintely worth making. I called Fleishman's yeast Co. and they told me if you open a big package of yeast up you have to put the reminder in a glass jar to keep it. I had my other package in a ziploc bag in the refrigerator and that  it enough protection for the yeast to stay fresh. I guess you can learn something new everyday.Shimmy

I buy bulk yeast and I keep it in a glass canning jar in the fridge.

I made some Grandmother's Bread last week for the first time. It was great. We use it for sandwiches all the time now. I bought two new loaf pans that work great. I might buy two more so I can make four loaves at one time. We love it and it is so easy to make!

I went to Goodwill this morning and I found a Pampered Chef stone loaf pan for $1.99 for Grandma's Bread. Think I'll make some beef Stew with Grandma's Bread for lunch tomorrow.  My Amish friends are coming back tomorrow to finish my porch, bet they wood like a warm lunch -instead of a cold sandwitch.

I made a couple loaves of Grandmother Bread with whey today (instead of water)--that's my favorite!

Oooo! That sounds interesting! I am making yogurt cheese tomorrow. Can I use the lliquid drained from that to make Grandmother bread? Is that whey too?

Yes, you could use that, Sheryl!  Any liquid drained from cheese is whey, and it's nutritious and really great in bread.  It adds flavor and a slightly chewy texture.  I really like it.  Store the whey in glass jars in the fridge--it keeps for a week or so.  When I make ricotta, I get three quart jars of whey.  Just reheat as you need it to start your bread.  (It needs to be warm, just as you would with the water.)

I wouldn't think there would be a problem freezing whey....

I would like to try making Grandmother Bread with whey so for the first time ever, I am draining my homemade yogurt.  I am not sure how much whey I will get from my quart of yogurt...if I don't get enough would it be okay to mix with part water?  Or will that just mess it up?

Yes, just add water to make up the difference.  I don't see how it could hurt it at all!

Not at all an expert on whey, but thinking it through, i don't see how it can mess up by mixing water and whey.............

I've never frozen whey (yet) so I'm not sure about that, but I'll try it and let you know!  Or you can try it.  Whoever tries it first, let us know!

As for using part whey, part water, yes!  No problem.  The whey is replacing the water, but you can replace it in part or whole, doesn't matter.  If you don't have enough whey, just fulfill the rest of the liquid with water.

You can freeze whey for use later in bread - no issues with separation when it thaws.  Freezer space is usually tight at my place, though, so I'd rather pressure can it.
