Today I made bread for the first time following the Tassajara Yeasted Bread recipe. My last two posts have also been about the preparation of this event.
I made the bread without a mixer, or a bread machine, using just a bowl, a spoon and my hands. Oh… and a couple of bread pans and a hot oven.

salt and oil added
kneaded and set to rise
risen after 45 minutes
then punched down
only to rise again after 45 minutes
then kneaded and ready for the oven
