Recipes Tips

If you're new to making bread, don't worry. It's a simple process that requires a little patience and practice. Here are a few tips to help you make the perfect rustic whole wheat bread:

1. Use warm water (not hot) to activate the yeast. If the water is too hot, it will kill the yeast.

2. Knead the dough for at least 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. This helps develop the gluten in the bread, which gives it structure and texture.

3. Let the dough rise in a warm place. The ideal temperature is around 80°F (27°C). If your kitchen is colder, you can place the dough in a warm oven (turned off) or near a radiator.
