Just curious: am I the only one who reads the title of this thread, "My breath smells bad"?

EVERY time I come on and see it, I have to read it twice.

I think it IS the oil. I had an ankle and heel surgery in June and started keeping the oil up on the counter so I didn't have to walk as far to get it. After reading Michael's reply , I bought new oil today and the difference is significant in look and smell. I will bake again tomorrow and let you know. I buy 25 lbs. of bread flour each month, so that should be pretty fresh. Thanks for all of your help.

FWIW: my rancid oil was probably only about 2 months old, had never been opened, and had been stored in a cool dark cabinet away from any heat sources. I learned from that to always smell and taste my oil, or shortening, before using it.

Hmmmm...I wonder how Nancy's bread turned out with the new oil? I actually thought of this thread yesterday when I picked up 3 bottles of EVOO on sale.

I had a similar situation before when I first started baking, but after careful tasting, I found out it's my flour has gone rancid.

Thanks everyone, the oil WAS the problem. My last two batches have turned out great. Now I taste the flour and the oil before I use it.

Thanks for letting us know, Nancy! So many people ask for help and we never hear from them again. Glad we were able to help ...
