A few weeks ago, E participated in a bread making class at church. The lady who taught did a marvelous job of teaching them not just to make bread, but to know and understand the physical attributes of the bread itself and the ingredients used to make them, as well as some fantastic Biblical connections to bread. She took each ingredient and found corresponding verses from the Bible that gave practical application to Christian life. E came away completely in love with bread making.
A few days ago, she decided that she wanted to make bread for the family and she wanted to teach her sisters to make bread. The middle giggly girl was not too interested but the youngest definitely was. You can’t keep J out of the kitchen! So E and J made the bread for Easter lunch and it was delicious. I did hover and help out where needed, but the read the recipe, got out and put away ingredients, stirred, kneaded, baked, and cleaned. It was a beautiful thing to see these sisters working together.
Here is the recipe they used from the King Arthur flour website and the process (mostly) in pictures.
These giggly girls would encourage you to get your hands dirty and make some bread. It is just sooooo good! I know they will be making some more very, very soon. At Home.
Head over to Ben And Me to see what the others have done for the letter B.
