Good morning everyone.
I have been writing about the wedding but now its about my bread. There will be more blogs about the wedding but not today.
I try to make my food because then I know exactly what is in it. I also like to use natural ways to keep the insects away and found this wonderful solution by accident. In a pot outside my kitchen door I planted Mint, Basilica and Lavender. Every time I go to my balcony I touch the plants and no mosquitos. I am not a mosquito friend and they probably hate me.
The plants grow in the pot and get a lot of attention from me so they are happy. I usually make my breads on Sundays because the electricity is cheaper. 6 breads in the oven and I am happy.
This Saturday I got the idea to use my insect trap to make my breads different. The kitchen smelled like heaven after I cut them to pieces. Yummy.
Mint, basilica and an Icelandic herb. The Icelandic one needed to be soaked and I used the water also in the bread.
I always use spelt and lots of seeds. Never sugar, but raisins make it sweet. The recipe changes every time. It depends on what is in store.
5 dl. spelt (this time I used fine and integral together, 2 dl.fine and 3 dl.integral.)
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 dl each, pumpkin seeds, raisins, sesame seeds and girasol (Have no idea what it is in English but this is the Portuguese name)
4 dl. mixed soymilk and water (Homemade milk of course with no added sugar or anything, just beans and water9
This is mixed (by hand and not too much) and baked for 45 minutes more or less at 185 degrees.
I love these breads and it is convenient to have them in the freezer. Let them rest for a while under towels, until they are cold. Then you just put them in whatever you want to keep in the freezer until you need them.
Yesterday I had mine with hemp butter. Usually one slice is my breakfast with Chinese tea, Jasmine tea that I get from my friends in China every year. The summer crop. On top of the bread in the morning I use 1 teaspoon organic honey mixed with cinnamon and a slice of goat cheese.
Well, now you know how to make a delicious bread where you put your love and passion into it while mixing the ingredienses by hand.
You eat healthy and your body loves you.
You think positive and your mind adores you.
You spread love around and everyone smiles at you.
What more can you wish for?
