Bread making..

    The mention of bannocks the other day reminded me of how varied this art is..
    Each country and region around the world has its own bread,.

    i mentioned Muckross Traditional farms in Killarney where old ways are kept alive and where I learned so much


    I lived nearby many years and have sat by that fireside knitting many an afternoon as that lady who became a friend, made bread,

    Visitors would be offered a piece, spread with the butter they make there. Bread like no other... Makes me quite teary as I miss that place

    My bannock recipe is based on that,

    I am sure there are many other breadmakers here?

    Three people make bread irregularly in my house. Mostly yeast but occasionally pan bread/flat bread/soda/cinnamon buns etc. Get fun and lovely to start to get a bit a bit of consistency over time.
    Most regular would be three of four loaves of yeast on strong flour and maybe 1/4 of Aldi fancy flour with malty bits and a bit of extra grain.
