Bread goes on living after being baked and has to mature!
Well, whenever I find a fresh breadcrumb anywhere, I can hardly stop myself – I just have to have it!
However, if I find too many bread crumbs, or even a small piece of bread, I may live to regret it. My little mouse tummy begins to ache and I start thinking how that can happen with fresh, healthy bread?
I checked with my clever little doctor’s book for mice and found an explanation:
Bread goes on living after being baked and has to mature! But WOW mouse, just think of the taste of really fresh, fragrant bread, or even the crusty end piece of a loaf! But it will bloat you!
All types of bread baked with yeast must rest for at least a day. On the other hand, leavened rye bread must rest for at least 3 days or even better 7 – 8 days before being eaten. The full taste of the bread is only developed after this maturing time.
So, my dear friend, process your flour in your Salzburger Grain Mill, bake your bread and then please let it mature – then enjoy! Believe me without any tummy aches!
