    Could this be the cause my bad bread experiences? I was looking through some bread cookbooks I have and they all say to use fresh flour. Mine has been sitting around for awhile. Is there anything I can do with it besides throw it away?

    I know you're going to tell me to throw it away but I just don't want to hear it. icon_confused.gif icon_sad.gif icon_lol.gif

    Get fresh. It's not that expensive and you'll be going through it much faster once you get into breadmaking. I go through a 1.5kg bag every week to 10days or so.

    I know!! it's just the budget concious person in me hates the thought of tossing almost two full bags of flour. 1 regular bread flour and 1 whole wheat flour. Oh well, I will go buy some new next payday and that will give be the incentive to get off of my butt and get baking before it expires again!! icon_lol.gif

    i store my WW flour in the freezer, it could get rancid pretty quickly. as for bread and AP flour, I use them pretty often, so I just store them in airtight jars in the fridge.

    I thought maybe they would be ok b/c they weren't opened until just recently. icon_redface.gif I would love to store it in the freezer but I don't have the room. icon_sad.gif

    Make ornaments out of it. Use a straw to make a hole for a ribbon to be attached.
