I feel like death. It’s a long story. I’ll tell you all about it eventually, until then, just bear with me here.
I adore flat bread in pretty much all it’s forms. This version is a combination of techniques I picked up over my years as a professional cook, baker, and pastry cook. I dry “fry” these one at a time on my cast iron skillet, medium low setting(number three in my stove), after pressing them into flat circles with my hand and a plate. A tortilla press would work great since this bread is a mix between roti and tortillas. After frying I brushed them with coconut oil, keeping in a zip lock bag until I’m ready to eat the rest of them; I ate about four or five during the whole process.
Simple Flat Bread
1 cup white flour
1 cup Masa* flour
A few good pinches of sea salt
Combine the flours and salt, add enough boiling water to make a stiff dough. When cool enough to stick your hands in break the dough into balls slightly bigger then golf balls. Preheat your frying pan or skillet, you can coat with some oil or leave dry. Fry each side until golden, brush with oil to keep soft.
*Masa flour is made from corn processed with lime, generally used to make tortillas. I love the flavour and like to mix the grains I use for flour. Use whatever combination or single flour you like
For those of you inclined to prayer, any and all energies that can be spared for my Mother would be appreciated. She went for a mammogram yesterday, was called today and was told she needs to go back for more tests and to see a specialist. They have not said if it is cancer of not. I am concerned because she has had pre-cancerous/cancerous cells removed twice already. She is already ill with Arthritis, Fibromyalgia and Spinal Stinosis, among a handful of others. She’s 59 years old. I’m trying really hard not to freak out about this. Instead I will pray.
After poking over this blog I’ve realized it needs much more then a new theme. I will be updating information as I am able, please be patient!
I finally had the chance to strain my dandelion oil. The picture I took does not do it justice. It has a wee bit of a green tinge from the olive oil but it was also this beautiful golden yellow! I’m really excited about trying it out. I really need to find my beeswax so I can make some salve right off the bat.
