Everyone is trying it, and the results are pretty good!

44w ago

Have you bought a loaf recently? Many of us can't remember what that feels like as there have been none in the shops for weeks. As soon as they are on the shelf, the metaphorical piranhas descend and it's gone before you've even had a chance to sniff it.

People are sick of it and have decided, enough is enough, we are making our own. But not how you'd expect...

If you own a slow cooker, there is a good chance that has been out of action recently too. I can't remember the last time I was able to acquire enough vegetables to do anything worthwhile in it – seriously, send help! So the resourceful people of the internet have decided to put theirs to good use in the quest to restore their bread supply!

So here it is, the tried and tested recipe and the solution to many problems. Please use it wisely!

It's likely there will be numerous ways you can do this, so let us know how you are making your bread!

      I live on the outside of a small Aussie isolated mining town surrounded by wheat fields, basil growing, beef cattle, and Lucerne.

      And lots of diesel powered tractors and electrically powered centre pivot...

  • 2 hours+ that’s quite a bit. But worth it for a loaf
