That's correct.

Jik and water. If it is non essential. Leave it for 3 days depending on the packaging.

What I have been doing for he last two weeks.
Packages. Groceries. Anything from outside.

1. Everything goes to Scullery.
2. Wash my hands.
3. Clean everything with jik water.
4. Put the disinfected stuff on the disinfected cupboard.
5. Once done clean the scullery.

Obviously pay attention to how you clean it and plastic bags etc.
Bleach would be the thing.
Thank you.

How?

I have some yeast, but not much and navigating these stores is not something I want to do...

So if I can "grow" yeast even if it's sourdough I'd be happy
Tonight's pizza dough is proofing in the fridge so it's nap time. :)
My gran had an amazing overnight fridge roll recipe. She's dead now, will see if someone in the family still has that recipe. Would be good if you posted yours.

The Fresh Loaf is a fantastic resource for all things bread including beer and pizzas):

Stella Culinary has an excellent set of tutorials and recipes for sour-dough bread (I started here originally):

For "artisan" non sour-dough bread which uses a 1/4 teaspoon of yeast, you won't get better than Jim Layhey's no knead recipe. Man is a legend:

Pizza:

Am a bit of a dough nut.

Making dough by hand is way better than a bread machine.

Have had three machines over the years, now I only make by hand. Sour-dough primarily, but I still go back to Jim Lahey's recipe every now and again, it is an excellent recipe.

Also make my own spaghetti, not often, but it is better than store bought.

Use good flour. It's expensive, but healthier for you and the environment. I mostly use Eureka.

Made our own hotdog buns today. Technique needs some work but taste and texture were 10/10.

TBH I don't know what breads our local spar has. Probably has a supply of hotdog rolls but I've got plenty of flour so figured I'd give it a bash. :)

Yet to do my groceries. I delayed, hoping things will get better. I'll try again next week. At most, we have a week's supply of decent meals. After that, it's rice/pap and whatever tastes like food. The small garden can supply 2 days of vegetables.

Thanks for this :)

First bread I've baked (and first thing I've baked in about 25 years). Will update on taste.

I heard some horror stories of people getting sick if you get it wrong and end up with the wrong bacteria... Is that scaremongering?
I kept my yeast plant alive and well baking many breads and pizzas for about 5 years now and never had any issues.
