making bread

August 11, 2012

Jude’s Home made (and ground) Caraway and chia seed whole wheat raisin bread
I dried my wheat grains ready to grind into flour with my schnitzer pico grain mill (they need to have the pop sound when squashed with a knife to show they are dry enough to grind).
Prepared my yeast with 1 cup approx 100 deg water, 1 cup similar temperature milk, 2 tablespoons black strap molasses till it bubbled.
Then I added my freshly ground wheat flour, chia seeds, soaked raisins and a handful of caraway seeds to aid digestion.
Mixed it to a nice dough.
Raised it twice to double size (this can take up to an hour I’m told but i couldn’t wait that long!)
Then baked it at 160deg Celsius till it looked good.
Tested on my husband! He thinks it’s pretty good – I like it too.

I’ll make it with a different grain next time so I make sure my nutrition is always changing giving more chances of staying healthy from all those undiscovered vitamins and minerals God put in when he created them all.
