Not everything #Hippie is bad…

My latest bread machine started giving me problems in early March of this year. This lead to pulling an old, hardly used cookbook off the shelf.

For the pictured loaf, I cut the “Basic Yeasted Bread” down to a 1/4-recipe. This yields a single 1-pound loaf which can be devoured easily by two adults before going stale.

Behold!

The Tassajara Bread Book, Edward Espe Brown, 1970, Shambala Books, Boulder.

Now, in warm summer months, it rises super efficiently, whereas at the start of my old-school bread making adventure I actually set it on a heating pad!

Wish you could smell it!


Here’s a second hippie cookbook I’ve just started using again:

“Laurel’s Kitchen,” Laurel Robertson, C. Flinders, B. Godfrey, Bantam Books, 1978.

Found I had a 5-pound vacumbag of whole wheat, so wanted to try some bread made with sprouts.

In the past I haven’t had good luck with sprouts, other than lentils. (I think because once they sprout they are basically ready-to-eat.)

“We shall see.”
