By special request, here is our famous bread recipe!
Bread behaves very differently in different climates, I would reduce this recipe by half or even a quarter and experiment. You might need more or less flour, longer or shorter baking times, etc.
Experiment with different grains and seasonings, but don’t overdo the grains or the bread will be very heavy.
Kosrae Village *Fantastic* Bread bake at 375 for about 30 – 35 minutes
1-> 6 cups water– heat to 100 degrees
2-> Check water temp, add honey and yeast
- -> 6 tablespoons honey
- -> 3 tablespoons yeast
3-> After yeast bubbles, add:
- -> 6 tablespoons of oil
- -> 1 cup cooked brown rice, oatmeal or other cooked grain
- -> 6 teaspoons of salt
- -> 1 tablespoon basil
- -> 1 tablespoon oregano
- -> 14 – 15 cups of flour
4-> Knead until bread is elastic, rub oil in a large bowl and on top of bread, put bread in bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size
5-> Turn bread out on counter, let rest, portion (we would make about 6 loaves)
