Slicing machines have made their appearence fairly late here. It used to be loaves or wrapped sliced bread which was and still is appalling soggy rubbish. A lot of fresh bread is alas wrapped as well which ruins it when the stuff has been wrapped while still warm.

On my very occasional visits to hypermarkets I see people carrying off wrapped bread by the trolley load, I'm told its then frozen and thawed as required. Doesn't bear thinking about, thank God for the servants !

It's those hard crusts and soft middles that are so good. They wrap them here but I noticed the wrapers have small holes to allow the air to get to them. In the US all things have to be wrapped and germ free if it's sold to the public. (It's the lawsuit capitol of the world here) It can be left on the shelves unwrapped but the general public can't just walk up and grab them. If you buy one it's put in a bag for you.

Same here with the bags though I'm only five minutes from the bakers and it doesn't affect the breads crispness. The regulations over here are getting a bit silly. Years ago the popular take away Fish and chips(fries) was wrapped in greaseproof paper and then in a sheet of newspaper (early recycling) alas this was considered unhygenic and the outer wrapper of newspaper was banned. A pity as I thought most newspapers served better as wrapper than news !

Perhaps the stuff printed by the "news media" caused the fish to go bad and the chips to sprout when brought in contact with 'em. Tom

The bread machine has been activated and has been spitting out loaves on a daily basis and some soda bread has emerged as well(with buttermilk DJ) It doesnt last long being eaten with butter. On tour in Eire I've had to contend with some heroic Irish breakfasts including soda bread by the ton. In my impoverished days in Ireland the breakfast 'extras' were carried off and provided for the rest of the day.

Thumbs down Alright!!

I'm glad I could turn you on to a good thing. I knew you would like it once you fired it up. Can't beat how easy it is and the taste and smell is soooo good. Tends to get a little fattening though.

I think I woke up this morning smelling the aroma of fresh baked bread. Good for you Chris. Pass the butter please!

You know what's wierd? We now bake our own bread exclusively so when in a rare pinch, I buy store bread, it's kind of like a treat. Never thought that would happen. I still love those hot aromatic slices of fresh baked with melting butter but the texture of store bread is something I guess I miss sometimes too. Not only that but it actually fits all the way in the toaster.

I know, I'm strange.
