Making Bread-Please publish a receipt for making bread without milk.
Have an earthen jar, about two quart; mix up a paste of flour and water and place this near the fire, or in the sun if in warm weather. This will sour or ferment in a few hours. Now in using this for making bread, the mixture after souring should be of a consistency that will pour; take a pan of flour and make a hollow in the center and pour in a pint or quart, according to size of baking, of the sour dough, stir with a spoon until it has mixed in enough flour so that it can be taken out and kneaded with the hands, if the dough has become too sour, so that there are no air bubbles in it, a pinch of soda should be added; of course there must be salt added at all times. This is what is known as sour dough bread and has been used on the cow and sheep ranges for many years. If one has baking powder, a spoonful may be added when flour is mixed and will make a good flapjack batter without being kneaded. In making thus a frying pan is used, but in bread making bake in an oven if in a permanent camp, bit if on the trial, carry a small Dutch oven if you want good bread, although one can use the frying pan altogether.
