HUMOTA THEATRE LUNCH at NOON COFFEE ut DONUTS ALL DAY CARLSON producing home made bread. "To save time," Miss Hewitt suggested, "Use dry milk and body temperature water in place of cooled, scalded milk, whole or skim milk can be warmed to body temperature In as much as milk In this area Is pasteurised. "A large quantity of yeast can also be used to speed the process. The bread will not taste yeasty If It is controlled to no more than double In bulk. The various kinds of yeast available are compressed, granular, and bakers. The bakers yeast works the fastest as It Is more moist and fresher than the others. Yeast wrapped In foil and fro ten will last for six months. Froeen bread keeps well too." Other points stressed by Miss Hewitt were that the temperature of all the Ingredients should be maintained at 85 degrees as that is the temperature at which yeast grows best; any type of shortening may be used, but If melted, should be cooled to body temperature; and allow the bread to double in bulk, but no more. "Knead until the dough springs back, but no more," cautioned Miss Hewitt, and added, "The amount of the bread dough In the pan Is important in order to have well shaped loaves. "Bake when the bread has risen three fourths of the way up the sides of the pan at 375 degrees if in pyrex and at 400 degrees in other types of pans to kill the yeast so the bread will not become too light. Lower the temperature to complete the baking. "Bread should be removed from the pans, allowed to cool uncovered, and be stored in plastic bags in a bread boy. Do not grease the crust as it will cause the crust to wrinkle," concluded Miss Hewitt. Recipes and key points on bread making can be secured at the extension service office by call- Ing 332-2201. Information will be mailed out if necessary and is available anytime to anyone that can stop at the office.
