I am a flour snob. I use good flour (King Arthur) or other high quality flour and do buy high protein for bread and low protein for cookies and cakes.

Would you say that the higher cost of the good flour offsets the cost of buying a reasonably good loaf of store bread? I'm curious.


I think there are a couple of things you must take into consideration before you can do a strict cost analysis.

For instance, homemade bread is definitely cheaper than the better storebought loaves (we prefer Arnold's oatnut bread if we buy storebought, and the cheapest I can find it in my local area is on sale for 2 for $5.00).

Even if I bought the more expensive bread flour (and personally, I've never been able to tell the difference in the baked loaf) homemade would still be much cheaper.

However, when I make homemade bread, we tend to eat more of it. This was especially true when my children still lived at home. An entire loaf of bread could disappear in less than an hour after it came out of the oven.

To me, this was still worth it, since I know what ingredient go into my homemade bread. But if you are buying cheaper bread (I think I've seen bread for as low as 79 cents a loaf on sale at Wal-Mart) and are looking strictly at price, then it would be a toss-up.

Well, then I would have to ask how many children you have? And did you and your husband get any of the bread before it disappeared?
