Our 4H group headed north today for one of the best field trips we've had in awhile - the "Bread Man's" bakery. Karl runs a family business right from his home. A fellow homeschooler, he began baking and selling bread a few years ago to support his family after a job change.
We all piled in to his commercial kitchen - just off the foyer to his home - and watched as he and his son created the bread they needed for the Farmer's Markets they would attend the next day. It was simply amazing to watch and even better to smell!
This scale is used to weigh the dough.
Loaves ready to go in the oven
That is a LOT of dough! Karl is getting ready to
cut and measure it and then form in to loaves.

Getting ready to cook
Yes, they cut open a fresh, warm loaf of bread...we added butter...oh.my.gosh! There is a reason I don't make homemade bread on a regular basis. I would eat the whole loaf! Karl was also generous enough to send home Stromboli with each of us. Yummy!
