I'm on a quest to build my food storage into a 1 year supply with foods that I know my family will eat. I've decided to keep a blog with recipes that I know my family will love and using only pantry or food storage items, and maybe in the interim this might help someone else who is also working on obtaining a 1 year supply with foods that not only your family can survive on but they will also love eating. If anyone has any recipes that they would like to add please email me at basicfoodstorage@gmail.com

French bread

Makes 2 baguettes

1/2 c. warm water (105-115 degrees)
1 1/2 T. yeast
1 t. sugar

Stir to combine then cover and set aside until yeast becomes foamy. About 5 min.

1 c. wheat flour
2 1/4 c. all purpose flour
2 t. salt
1 t. sugar

Mix well and then add yeast mixture to flour mixture. Gradually add 1 c. water until dough forms a smooth ball that is not sticky to handle. Adjust water and flour accordingly to make a smooth elastic dough. place on floured surface and knead briefly until smooth.

Cut dough in half and shape into loaves. Grease pan or cookie sheet and place loaves on pan. Score the loves crosswise down the loaf. Cover with dish towel and let rise until double in size.

Preheat oven to 450, place shallow pan with water on bottom of oven. When bread has finished rising, place bread in oven and bake for 15 minutes.
