I made this for the first time today. I had to keep a good eye on it because it is very warm today. That worked to my advantage because I only had to let it rise for an hour each time. I baked it as directed and it came out perfect. I also whipped up a batch of homemade hummus today and it was delicious on this bread.
Anytime I can make something myself rather than purchasing it at a store I'm thrilled. It saves me money and I know exactly what is in it. I also feel more connected to the earth and feel like i am working with it, rather than against by purchasing something with questionable ingredients that might be harmful to the planet. There is also the added benefit of having the house smell like a bakery!
