I learned to how to make bread at a hunting camp as a camp cook. Mo was the camp cook in Canada. She gave me a crash course on baking.
She had great recipes. Alas, she had to go to her own camp and I was to hold down the fort at mine..I do not know what I would have done with out her knowledge, patience and all around just a great person.
I use her recipes all the time and this is my main recipe for making bread.
I am lucky to have a daughter in Canada that brings me the "Red River Cereal" when I run out. I keep it in the freezer.
Red River Cereal is a really course ground, looks a lot like a 7 grain type.
