Packaging: This item is packed inside a mylar bag and then that bag is put inside a 5-gallon pail. If your pail arrives “sucked in,” this can be normal due to changes in elevation during transit. If this happens to your bucket simple open the seal to the lid to “reinflate” the pail, then put the lid back on. This will NOT shorten the shelf life of the product as it doesn’t affect the mylar bag and will still keep rodents out.
Shelf life estimates are based on industry studies from sources deemed reputable. Since Rainy Day Foods has no control over individual storage practices, they must disclaim any liability or warranty for particular results.
Shelf Life: Should be stored in cool dark place- optimum condition is 60 degrees or less- for longer storage. Storing properly in our enameled cans and Super pail buckets, product may store 30 years.
Directions: Grind to make bread.
5 1/4 Cups Ezekiel-Mix Ground into Flour (makes 3 loaves) Measure into a large bowl: 4 cups warm water
1 cup honey or molasses
1/2 cup oil
2 Tbsp yeast
Mix and set aside for 5 minutes until frothy. Measure the flour and add to the flour, 2-3 tsp salt. Mix with a strong wooden spoon until stretchy and elastic – about 7 minutes. This is a batter bread that will not form a smooth ball. Pour into 3 greased bread pans in even amounts. Place pans in oven on lowest heat to rise (170 degrees) . Allow to rise to within 1/2 inch of tops of pans and NO MORE or it will overflow and trash your oven. It will take about 15-20 minutes. Once risen, WITHOUT OPENING THE DOOR, turn the heat up to 350. If you open the door, the cool air will cause the bread to fall. Bake at 350, about 25-30 minutes until nicely browned on top – remember, this is a cake-like bread and will not be like regular yeast breads – you may have to experiment with cooking times. Butter tops once out of the oven.
