As promised, here is the six-strand braided challah, with dried fruit (blueberries, cherries, golden raisins, papaya, et al.)
Wonderful braiding and I love the fruits in your Challah. I love braiding almost as much as tieing fishing knots... "lol"
Your loaf looks lovely, and your braids are beautiful
But if I put fruit (dried or otherwise) in my challahs my family would hide my Bosch from me and ban me from the kitchen.
