Boxing Day Bread Lesson

All is quiet on Boxing Day. I asked H if he would teach me how to make bread so we spent the afternoon doing that. We started with a white loaf, then H made a fruit loaf which had dried figs, dates, cherries, cranberries and toasted walnuts, and then finished with a brown loaf. We used a lot of spelt flour and recently stocked up on some flour that was milled locally. I sliced and froze most of the loaves, and what wasn’t frozen made for a delicious dinner paired with the Christmas Day ham. Here’s some pics from the yeast to the finished product.
