How to Bake 2000 Year-Old Bread

Tim found this for me last night, and I loved it so much, I had to share. In other news, my energy is returning (immune system issues), and I even got to hit Apple Castle yesterday, where we snagged heirloom apples. More on that later, as I'm about ready to close the lid on our coffins.

PS: We also snagged some killer raw local honey yesterday. Very, very sweet, but it'll do nicely in bakes.

And that's all from me. Bye!

    1. I thought it was too. I loved how happy the chef was making the dough. And when he said, "oops."

      If I got a hold of the formula he used, I would give it a go. For sure.

  2. Total nerdgasm. How cool! That string thing is genius and I like the "stamp" technique too. I was at the Pompeii exhibition on Mother's Day, they should've been peddling real 2000 year old bread instead of all that fake replica stuff at the gift shop! :) Thanks for sharing!

    1. Fake bread? That's horrible. Yuck.

      I thought the stamp was neat too. And the string for carrying. Cleaver bakers.

  3. I reckon baking "2000 year old bread" would be a super mouldy situation. Was I being pedantic? Must go now and loaf around the house :)

    1. Very fun with that string. I'll try that bit with my own breads. Might tie a bunch of rolls and then Tim can take it to work for sharing.

  8. Great video.
    I sometimes forget about my baking in the oven, but I've never left it for close on 2000 years, not yet anyway.

  11. That was very interesting. And the bread looked so delicious! I wonder if my mom learned to make similar types in the village she grew up in. They made EVERYTHING from scratch. And you know what you need now? I GIANT kitchen with an oven like that.
