Homemade Bread Day

When : Always November 17th

Bakers of the world, rise up and bake some bread, for today is Homemade Bread Day.

Bread has been made for thousands of years. Estimates date it's origin back to 5000-10,000 B.C. Modern day lifestyles has relegated homemade bread to the world of specialty baking and holiday baking. People just don't have time to bake home made bread. We turn to a quick "run" to bakeries and grocery stores, for our bread needs. The arrival of automatic bread-makers has created a small resurgence of home made breads, especially specialty breads.

The purpose of this day is easy to understand.--- to make home made bread, and to encourage you and me to make tasty and nutritious bread. So, take a little time out of your busy day, and make some bread. Your nose, your taste buds, and your whole family will be glad you did.

Happy Homemade Bread Day!

Origin of Homemade Bread Day:
From our research, it appears that this special day is sponsored by the Homemade Bread Day Committee of Montague, Mi. We did not find their website. So we have yet to uncover more information about this special day.

    I used to make my own breat, but now because of health concerns, I hardly eat any and it either goes bad or gets freezer burned before I finish a loaf...... so I don't bother anymore..... but I do love the aroma as fresh bread is baking....
