despite the lack of posting, i have been sticking with my #breadchallenge. the last couple weeks have been busy and hard, for reasons i won’t get into here, but baking actually helps, and no one’s more surprised about that than me.
week four: i stuck with the same recipe as used in week three, although i did add a bit more flour and forgot the sesame seeds.
i also made clementine and lemon marmalade, based on the navel orange and lemon marmalade recipe in my favorite canning book: canning for a new generation, by liana krissoff. the three pound bag of clementines i bought, along with two lemons, made just a hair over three 8oz. jars of marmalade. and kept me somewhat pleasurably occupied in the kitchen for about three hours of an otherwise terribly hard day, so i consider it an overall success.
i gave one jar to a friend for christmas but we still have two jars left and marmalade is an obviously perfect complement to my bread-baking.
for week five of the bread challenge, i switched back to the oatmeal bread i made in week one. i remembered the salt this time and used honey instead of molasses. possibly the best loaf yet.
