We invited a lovely local bread baking expert to our TBG meeting;
she showed us a few tips and shared her love of baking.
We learned all about the grain of wheat and what the different parts of it are used for.
We learned all the nifty tricks and tools to use for mixing, kneading, and baking bread.
We made a basic loaf as well as a no-knead sweet loaf she called Challah.
She showed us how to make a beautiful braid on top of our sweet loaf
by folding over slices of dough to cover up the sweet sticky jam.
The church kitchen smelled amazing!
We were sure to share with the passersby in the hallway :)
And a kids book about the history of bread in other cultures (with recipes.)
Doing a handicraft that you can eat too! is a big hit with the kids.
And there's just something wholesome about kneading a loaf between your hands.
