Bread making is often referred to as one of the "lost arts." This is far from the truth even in these days when women participate in a wide variey of activities. Today's women are constantly alert to modern trends, and one of the most important concerns is good bread for the family.

Since bread is served so often in one formor another, it is most desirable that it be of excellent quality. The homemaker who takes pride in serving good foods often bakes some or all of the bread for her family. She decides whether she will bake or buy, and she considers the cost in time and money, the taste of the baked goods, and the nutritive value.

This Extension Circular from 1941 contains information on bread in your diet, the ingredients, equipment and methods for making bread. It contains plenty of good bread and roll recipes for the housewife to try.
