I think one of the biggest issues people have with making homemade bread is the time necessary to make it. After timing my involvement in making bread, I actually only do about 5 minutes of total work, the rest of the time is waiting for it to rise, proof and ferment a bit. I hope that comes as a pleasant surprise and makes you want to get up and go make bread, because in addition to homemade pasta there is nothing, and I mean nothing, like homemade bread. There is also a certain satisfaction you get from making homemade bread because of the time it took to achieve it. When I get my first slice after waiting for 7-8 hours for it to complete, it’s almost an emotional experience. I know that may seem odd to you, but man there really is nothing like it.
