FOWC with Fandango: Dough

Anita's Farm in Oberdorf

Living in a country area, we have many farms and it is tradition, or a way of farming life, that you bake your own bread if you are a farmer’s wife. You grow the wheat and you have your own flour. I suppose this is why it happens. I have a colleague, she married a farmer, and now and again I would pay her a visit to see her animals and take a few photos.

I often met her in the kitchen where she was waiting for the dough to rise to bake some bread. This is one of the photos I took.

Of course any genuine bread baking farmer’s wife also has a suitable oven. You do not bake bread for one day, but for a whole week, and the smell was fantastic.

I too have had my bread baking days, but they are now long ago. I even had a bread machine, but it is work. Who knows, with the new normal we now have, realising that not everything as not as it used to be, I might even begin to bake bread again, although……. if you buy enough bread you can always put it in the freezer.

  1. How wonderful to make your own bread- in fact any home baking – too delicious to resist eating too much for me though! I’m thinking I would like to live in a smaller village community – it seems much friendlier 🙂 Have a lovely weekend- hope it’s sunny there.

  2. I got my sourdough starter brewing again and have made pancakes once and a loaf of braided bread once so far. Nothing beats fresh bread, but it is a lot of work/exercise. I discovered that the plant mats I bought for starting seedlings works perfectly for sitting the bowl on to raise the bread.

  3. I used to bake bread too, especially in Israel because I had a gas oven which really helped. But it was messy and it took all day to make four loaves of exceptional bread and everyone scarfed it down in a bare few seconds. But if things get any worse, I might reconsider my options.
