End of day 3

These are fire bricks. Sam carefully cleaned it up for the photo

Brick by brick

Messy job

I thought that this was going to be the easy part of the class-but that was far from the truth. The bread baking has been exhausting. I had a sticky mess. The kitchen is hot and we have 9 big dirty bowls . We will end up with 10 loaves...if they aren't any good we will feed it to the chickens


Starter for this peasant bread


Back at the oven project, we are about to lay some bricks. Our bread doughs are fermenting and will bake later this afternoon . Here we are taking the forms off the concrete.

Peasant bread

We shall rise


Good morning
