Hope everyone had a good Saint Patrick’s Day! I made lots of Irish Soda Bread, using the recipe from the Secrets of Jesuit Breadmaking cookbook. I subbed in whole wheat pastry flour instead of white AP. And I grate my butter before mixing it in instead of using a pastry blender. I really liked how this bread came out. I brought it in to share with my colleagues, with Amish butter, and homemade peach and raspberry jams.
I picked up some books from the library this weekend, and have spent the past few days daydreaming in our 70+ degree sunny weather for summer cooking plans. I am so looking forward to the real spring and summer.
