    Like to try new products! The pack gave us that opportunity. So far the Honey wheat was best, though for our taste I added a teaspoon of salt and a tablespoon honey for second run. I used a Zojirushi BBCC x20 bread machine and a half recipe from the can. Set it on whole wheat with medium crust and it was great. Good texture for whole wheat bread, good keeping.

    Survival food doesn't mean you can't eat in style. I have a few #10 cans of this stuff to make bread (I wish I would have purchased this entire pack). This got me into bread making at home, which saves me a lot of money. I would highly recommend this ReadyPack for your shelf!

    This group of ingredients is a nice all-in-one package to help beginning breadmakers test out different recipes and methods of baking bread at home. It's such an important skill to learn! I started with a breadmaker but I got terrible results, now I make my bread by hand and I understand the textures and "feel" of the dough a lot better. I'd recommend learning by hand at first. It's very rewarding!

    I wanted to try the mixes so bought the last time this was on sale. Used the sourdough, whole wheat and white both by "regular hand made" and bread machine. Second run: I used a Zojirushi BBCC x20 bread machine and a half recipe and added 1 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon more honey and used medium crust. WOW, it gave a big loaf! Super charged yeast guys!

  • Gloriously expensive failure – from an experienced baker

    I recently purchased the Bread Making ReadyPack - SKU: FD0432. I’ve been making bread for many years both traditionally using my oven and using my Zojirushi BB-PAC20 Home Bakery Virtuoso. I made several batches of white, wheat, and sourdough bread using this product following the printed instructions to the letter. The resulting breads were very flat, highly dense, and tiny for a five-cups-of-flour loaf of bread. I’ve always gotten large two pound loaves of bread using just three cups of any type of flour, so this product is definitely a disappointment when following the instructions. Reducing the water content did modestly reduce the “dimple” in the top but didn’t help with the low-rise
    problem at all. Is there something wrong with either the mix or the instructions? Has any of the Ready Store staff actually attempted to bake bread using this product? If so, how did they fix the low rise (almost no rise) problem? As it is right now the Saratoga Farms bread mixes are pretty much a complete failure. I’m hopeful the Ready Store will eventually come up with a solution, but in the meantime I suggest storing and using regular bread flour until it’s widely and proudly announced the many problems with this product are corrected.

  • Not a suitable for baking bread

    This review of the Bread Making ReadyPack and its several components is based on my personal experience as a baker for over 30 years. Bottom line up front: the Bread Making ReadyPack and its component Honey Whole Wheat Bread Mix, White Bread Mix, and Sourdough Bread Mix is completely failed product.

    Cooking which is an art form where a dash of this and a pinch of that will result in wonderful entrees, whereas baking is the science of chemistry requiring precision of ingredients, volume, time, temperature, and technique. There are significant differences between general purpose flour and bread flour which contains potassium bromate that strengthens dough and allows for greater oven spring and higher rising in the oven. Yeast is a living plant requiring specific conditions of moisture, oxygen, food, and appropriate temperature to survive. Gluten is a general name for proteins found in wheat which helps keep food together and makes bread “elastic”. Salt provides flavor to bread, tightens the gluten structure, and retards over-fermentation of yeast. Bakers sometimes also create a preferment, which is a portion of bread dough made several hours or days in advance of mixing the final dough. All this knowledge seems to have been ignored in the creation of the bread mixes which comprise the Bread Making ReadyPack.

    Each of the three bread mixes is a compilation of dried ingredients sealed in a number 10 can with three oxygen absorbers to ensure freshness. The Honey Whole Wheat Bread Mix, Sourdough Bread Mix, and White Bread Mix seem to contain typical ingredients, with first significant problem being that everything is powered and mixed all together. The instructions basically say to add water and yeast (except the White Bread Mix, which curiously omits adding yeast), mix to make a dough, allow to rest for a brief period, then bake at various temperatures and durations specific to reach mix. The results will invariably be very low rise, heavy, almost brick-like loaves which are essentially inedible.

    I imagine someone thought it might be a good idea to pre-mix powered milk, butter, flour, etcetera into a just-add-water-then-bake product, but a casual consultation with an experienced baker would have warned them off such a terribly conceived experiment. Baking edible bread is not the same as reconstituting freeze dried eggs! Baking bread is a common food experience connecting all humanity just as “breaking bread” is the universal existential expression of community, peace, and human dignity. Bakers through the ages have taken great care to ensure this basic and essential foundation food is well crafted, presented, and preserved through each generation. I urge The Ready Store to withdraw their bread mixes and focus instead on offering proper ingredients like bread flour, gluten, yeast, sugar, salt, powdered milk, eggs, and butter (reconstitute all before using), and seek the assistance of an experienced baker to ensure the product actually performs as claimed. In other words, “Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again. Give portions to seven, yes to eight, for you do not know what disaster may come upon the land.”
