The bread-making suggestions in this bulletin have been adapted to meet conditions which are common throughout the State of Utah. Our high altitudes and dry atmosphere make problems in bread-making which are quite different from those found in lower elevations and more moist climates.
You will find many changes from the bread-making methods and recipes prepared for use at sea level. We need more liquid, less yeast, more and shorter rising periods, and a higher baking temperature to make really good bread in our Utah homes.
Follow the directions carefully and you will have uniformly good bread and rolls every time you make them. Methods, tests and recipes are given in much detail, to help those of you with little experience develop skills which will result in high quality baked products. Use of these skills can save you money as well as time and energy.
Some new homemakers may use these instructions for their first bread-making. Experienced homemakers who are veterans in the art of making bread may find a few ideas which can help them.
The general instructions in the first part of this bulletin apply both to the plain and to the fancy yeast breads. You will find when you turn to the recipe section that the “Sweet Yeast Doughs” call for more ingredients than do those for the “Staff of Life” bread. Methods of handling the two doughs differ slightly.
The methods and recipes in the pages which follow come to you as a result of several years of testing in different parts of Utah. These recipes will be an invaluable help for anyone who needs to know how to attempt to make bread in a high altitude for any reason.
