7 Grain Homemade Bread

Colleen Bos


As a child growing up in a family of 6, there was a need to save money and made your own meals, desserts and pastries. I'm the eldest and it was expected to learn how to do so many things and take care of my siblings.

One of the things I had to do was make bread by hand, make loafs of bread and bake it. Mom had some wonderful recipes. Therefor I have chosen to alter a recipe that I grew up making with the help of my mother. I hope you all enjoy it. My friends and friends sure love it.
