TO KNEAD OR NOT TO KNEAD.....THAT IS THE QUESTION!

March 13, 2007 - 7:57pm -- pelosofamily

I WAS TAUGHT TO MAKE HOMEMADE  BREAD IN THE SIXTIES BY A NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOUR, AND IT BECAME MY PASSION.  I MADE IT IN A BOWL WITH A SPATULA ..ADDED FLOUR AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BOWL AND WITH A 'UP AND AROUND MOTION' MADE A MOIST BALL, RUBBED IT IN BUTTER AND LET IT RISE AND PANNED IT.  FORMING LOAVES TOOK A BIT OF TIME TO LEARN.   NOW, WE CALL IT ARTISAN.  MY CHILDREN LOVE BREAD THAT CLOSELY RESEMBLES COMMERCIAL BREAD BUT IRONICALY THEY DON'T LIKE COMMERCIAL BREAD ANYMORE.
