Breadmaker heaven

I can't believe it's taken me two years to suss this one out. It can be hard to buy bread free of plastic wrapping, and making bread by hand is very time consuming. So I bought a secondhand breadmaker for $10 and now have fresh bread whenever I want.

Aside from the obvious plastic involved in purchasing the maker, I can source of all my ingredients in bulk (I use paper bags which I reuse), and best of all, the organic alternative to the non-organic is not much more of a cost.

For those of you living in New Zealand, Bin Inn is now stocking more and more organic products in bulk. If they don't have what you want, just ask. They are always keen to meet demand.
Yum! To keep it fresh I wrap my bread in material
that is infused with bees wax. Works really well.

  1. Material infused with beeswax? That sounds so interesting. Can you purchase it or make it?

    1. Hi Chris, you can indeed make them (though I bought mine). Here's a link to a helpful website: http://myhealthygreenfamily.com/blog/wordpress/plastic-wrap-alternative-diy-beeswax-cotton-wraps/
      Alternatively, you can buy them. If you are in NZ, here's couple of sites to order from: http://www.beewrapt.co.nz/ or http://www.honeywrap.co.nz/
