If you have one of those Food Saver machines, you can store it in those bags – which can be customized. They will be airtight and watertight. Less expensive than the machine are Lock N Lock containers.
They are inexpensive, reusable, guaranteed for a long time (life time, I believe) and they have various sizes. You can even get ones specifically designed for BULK storage (like 20 lbs of flour, cat food, etc.) Check http://www.qvc.com and search Lock N Lock. I have a bread machine and I am going to use it more often this year.
We hardly ever eat a full loaf of bread from the grocery store. I like the idea of making a smaller loaf at home, with my own ingredients and whatever size I want it to be. Herlean
wrote: The rise in bread prices has floored us recently. The cheapest we can
find is $2 a loaf, and that’s for the highly-proccessed, white stuff
that I can’t stand to put in my body. I know many swear by the bread
outlet stores but our local store is filled with overly stale bread
that falls apart the moment you try to do anything with it.
So, being home all day, I decided to start baking our own bread. I’d
rather invest the time in making bread where I know what all of the
ingredients are. After much experimentation, I found a bread recipe
that we like and is easy to make.
I want to buy flour in bulk from Costco (20 lb bags) to cut down on
costs. The question is, how can I store it so bugs can’t get into it
but not be intrusive? I don’t have a lot of storage or closets in my
house to hide a container and with 2 inqusitive kids, I have to keep it
secure. Any ideas?
