It's generally better all round, though try a low-salt substitute and see what you think. The recommended allowance is 6g, most adults consume 9g or more.

Start changing your habits now and you can avoid being where I am in 20 years time. ;)

I've never even thought of living in Milton Keynes.  ;)

I had no idea that salt was essential for good crusts.  My breadmaker turns out wonderful rustic-type crusts with the small amount of salt I use so I will try further reducing it to see what happens!  The crusts are so much nicer if eaten on the first day after baking!

Agreed, but you can refresh a loaf in the oven on its second day, Clive, and it's almost indistinguishable from fresh baked.

Heat the oven to Gas Mark 7, 220C. Put the loaf under a running tap briefly so the outer surfaces are all damp, put in the oven, leave 12-14 minutes. Allow to cool.

I didn't know that either.  I know you can refresh stale slices of bread by microwaving them for 10 seconds.
There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.
