Thanks for the recipe, but bread is not on our diet. Recently went Paleo.

Of course, I made that decision right after coming home with six boxes of Belvitas, eight boxes of Nilla Wafers and ten boxes of Triscuits.

:shock:

No, I am a strict Paleo, that is what is so danged annoying about it. Those items are placed on the TEOTWAWKI shelves for barter purposes.
I never claimed to be very smart. :grin:

Yeast is NOT in my plan because there are lots of decent recipes that don't require yeast and have minimal ingredients. Chances are your hands will be pretty tired from manually chopping wood, doing laundry, etc. I would highly recommend getting a cheap tortilla press for flatbreads because it will save your hands and and make them look much nicer.
Here's a couple of decent recipes to try out.

We don't do the yeast thing either. Our Gluten-Free way of eating does have any need for it. However, for those who do prep with yeast and preserve it by keeping in frozen or in a cold cellar or some sort.

How long would yeast store any way? and how would you store it? We made some yeast rolls on Sunday and they were pretty good.

We have 3 1 lb vac sealed packages in the freezer. If we have to BO or power down the yeast should stay active for a long time as long as its kept reasonably cool. But as been said yeast will not be a high priority.

You can MAKE yeast. It is present on the skin of most fruits and vegetables. It is also present on sprouted corn and barley. Apple peels are great for this. So are raisins. You just put the raisins in water and let them sit until they float and the water smells like wine. YEAST WATER! They moonshine and bake with this. soaking apple peel in water like this is the activator for hard apple cider (yum) you just float in water till it smells nice and yeasty, and yes it won't be pretty. But it works! Like for zucchini bread, just peel a zucchini soak in water for about five-six days. Then add that yeast water to a part of water for the recipe and get baking. The flavor will carry through.
