National Homemade Bread Day

National Homemade Bread Day

Sliced bread is a great thing. It saves time and eliminates the need to knead. It’s a shame, however, that so few people get to enjoy homemade bread’s delicious yeasty flavor.

This is where Home-Made Bread Day arrives!

Although the origins of this Day are a mystery, the history and evolution of bread is a part of the history of humanity. Bread is an integral part of culture and diet, and can be found in almost every corner of the globe in one form or another.

It is believed that cereals and grains were an important part the human diet before bread was invented. Bread is thought to have been introduced into the world as early as 10,000 years ago during the Neolithic Period in Europe. Even loaves of bread from this long ago still used the idea of keeping a piece of the previous day’s bread to make sourdough bread.

The tragic eruption of Pompeii in 79 AD preserved the city’s ovens, so that archeologists could later find them. The discovery that bread was available in at least 33 bakeries was a sign that people of that time had bread.

Bread-makers have made baking easier. This means that everyone can enjoy homemade bread. Bread made at home is healthier, more nutritious, and less salty than commercial breads. The recipe can also be altered to suit the maker’s preferences, adding spices or grains.

Homemade bread, no matter what form it takes, is delicious and should be celebrated!
