prime dough

Now the yeast was in the fridge there was no turning back. Having made the decision “I’ll bake some bread” a couple of years ago I was closer then ever to doing so, obviously.

I won’t claim it was very sophisticated, but thanks to a friend’s easy to follow recipe it turned out pretty OK and was fun to make.

The idea to make my own bread consequently and in line with my general tendency towards holistic endeavours quickly led to the plan of building a woodfire baking oven in the back garden. Although clearly a necessity, it might take another few moons to do, after all there’s a few other projects too.

We’re lucky to have some good bakers and a decent selection of bread here, albeit no Tiroler Schwarzbrot. Coincidentally, and I dare bet that’s a first for our parish, these prime loaves were done by an old recipe from Mantova, South Tyrol.
