You're talking years ago now, when the kids were little, in the 1970's, bakers' were on strike. We had to bake our own bread, it wasn't too bad, well the kids ate it. Can't remember how we did it.

Oh I've made bread, when we had the strike, it was called Soda Bread, there's no yeast in that. At the time we just did it because there was no other way. Put all the ingredients ready for when I got home from work and soon after my husband would come, he would see to the tea and I'd be making the bread ready for tea.

I make my own bread, brown mostly, by hand, not a breadmaker. I learned at school in the 70's, they don't teach them anything now, no cookery. I taught all mine to cook from scrtach, no prepared foods. I get my yeast from Tescos, some places won't give it to you because it's a live organism.

We use to get fresh bread from the local shop.  It doesn't taste the same from the supermarket, the loves gone out of it now.
