Bread flour

Although more expensive, I usually use Waitrose very strong Canadian flour (15.0% protein). You might also try Lidl own brand whch also works well, but lower protein level.

bread flours

I have seen the Canadian flour from Waitrose recommended on several bread blogs so I purchased some last week but haven't used it yet. I am interested to see how it performs as I make sourdough bread on a regular basis. I have used Lidl bread flour before and am quite pleased with it and the price is extremely good! If the Waitrose flour is better I will use it but the cost of it is a lot more than Lidl's so it has serious competition.

Bread flour - own brand variable quality

I've never made sourdough, having a machine it isn't really necessary, so I cannot comment. I have ordered some gluten flour from the local bulk powder shop in town but I forgot to check that it is wheat-derived. I'll try Lidl and adding gluten to the cheap own-brand.

flours

I also have a bread machine, but I make sourdough bread because it is a different type of dough/bread, much nicer than anything I could make in my Panasonic machine. I still make loaves in the machine , which when sliced will fit easily into the toaster, but for bread to enjoy I make sourdough. It really can't be compared to machine made bread, as different as trying to compare white cottonwool bread from the supermarket to a home-made loaf from a bread machine!

Thanks, I'll get around to doing that. I was given a lot of round tuits for Christmas :)

Best bread flour

I have shopped around looking for the best quality bread flour (with a decent gluten content) that gives a good lift. As with this original post I found that own brand ( i found with Sainsburys) often varied batch to batch. Best deal I have found with price and gluten content was the 16kg bag you get from Costco. It's Manitoban flour (Costco is a Canadian company) and comes out with a fantastic loaf! Also Grainary is a term copyrighted by hovis and so if your looking for an alternative try a malted flour.

Glad to see I wasn't the only person finding variability with own brand flour!

Bacon Hock?

your local butcher!!!!!!! Our butcher has them regularly and is more than happy to sell them cooked or uncooked!

You're right. Make lovely pea and ham soup!! And the meat is fantastic when pulled away from the bone and the skin and shredded to make some yummy sandwiches!
