Today was a little bit of a lazy, blustery autumn day.
The cheese is Jack, made from a recipe from the New England Cheese company. It will dry, be waxed and age for a few weeks. It should be ready for Christmas.
This bread cloche from Sassafrass is listed for over $30.00 on line. We found it at the local thrift for only $7.99. Even better, I was able to use a store credit that I had from some jeans that i had returned earlier. It’s a little discolored, but I think that is just from use.
This little butter dish was just too precious to pass on. I’ve started collecting hand-thrown jugs, bottles and dishes. They lend such a warm and cozy feel to our home and serve so many purposes.
The Kefir and Coconut Milk Bread is great, maybe a little big, but it tastes wonderful.
This goes into the bread machine
- 350ml kefir milk
- 100ml coconut milk
- 2 t salt
- 4 T sugar
- 2 T butter
Followed by 750g of bread flour and 1 T dry yeast
I set the machine on dough and let it go before turning it out into a linen cloth in a basket to rise. I pre-heated the cloche to 450 degrees, turned the dough out into it, covered and baked for 15 minutes. I then lowered the temperature to 400 degrees for 25 minutes (covered) and 5 mintues (uncovered).
