These turned out better

These turned out better, but not as good as I hoped.  I'm going to try mixing my dough with my mom's ancient mixer.  I think since I have so much trouble mixing it by hand when it gets stiffer, I work it too much when I add more flour.  In the end, I used the whole amount called for in Jim's recipe even though at this altitude.  I only made half the recipe.

Mixers hardly ever burn up kitchens.  If smoke starts comming out, just unplug it.  Deep friers on the other hand, well just ask my brother.


That really is a nice looking loaf of bread, keep the good work Steph.
