The bread is delicious — nutty and dense. Vince loves it and Chad hasn’t tried it yet. I truly thought my first few loaves might not be so great but if they all turn out this good, I’ll be real happy.
For those who asked me about the cost per loaf, I’ve figured that with the honey, oil, salt, yeast, the flour but not counting the cost of the mill or the cost of the electricity to bake it, each loaf costs about $1. If you’ve had bread from fresh milled wheat, you’ll immediately know why it’s worth the effort, although unless I’m missing something, this didn’t take enough extra effort to cause me to think twice about it. I suppose if I weren’t baking all our own bread anyway – yes, that might be a lot of trouble to go from storebought bread to milling my own wheat, then making my own bread but since I make bread at least 4 days a week, the benefits of having fresh whole wheat flour is definitely worth the few minutes it takes to mill it.
Now I’m going downstairs to sew for at least 2 hours!
