Giveaway winner and Bread making
Congratulations to Cassie who won the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs picture.
I have stopped buying bread and make my own
I sometimes make wholemeal, sometimes plain.
Cooking on a wood fire has a rhythm to it
One needs to collect fallen pine cones ( great fire starters)
Cut kindling and chop wood
Luckily my husband loves the rhythm of wood chopping
I light my wood fire everyday, Winter and Summer
It is connected to the hot water element, so no mains are needed
This is my bread recipe
Stir 2tspns dry yeast in 2 cups of water
Stand for 15 minutes
In a bowl add 3 cups of flour
Add a pinch of salt
Let stand for 2 hours in warm place
Punch down, knead again
Let stand for 1 hour
Place in greased tin and cook at 180 C for 45 minutes.
I am always thankful for all your kind comments... love and light Marie
