Horse Shoe Rolls
Today i did something i haven't done for 50 years i made some Horse Shoe rolls. Recently i was asked if i might be able to assist the Melville Historical Society with making some loaves to be used as props in their display at Millers Bakehouse. i am hoping to do some loaves later in the week with my friend Nick Agostino from Il Panino Bakery at his Maddington bakery, the ones that are from the era before sliced bread Uprights, Devons, Cobs and Viennas. Anyway i noted that many people in their recollections as kids of Millers Horse and cart delivery was being given the odd Horse Shoe Roll or two on his rounds. So i thought lets make some of those at home. What i have to do tomorrow after drying the rolls out in a warm oven is to seal them with a coat of laquor and then apply a few coats with a brush to preserve them., and they last for quite a few years apparently.
