Well, our bread is baked and done...actually, it's been eaten now. It turned out pretty well. I could have actually used it as a weapon (the crust was REALLY hard) but it was soft and delicious inside. The kids were in bed by the time it was done, so they missed out on the fresh bread (poor kids!). I found the process REALLY long. The bread was great but was it really worth the 4-5 hours that it took us?
We actually made homemade butter to go with our bread and had a fresh pot of local wildflower honey as well. Maybe I can find a less time consuming recipe????
