Would you share your olive bread recipe so the rest of us can show our support by making and eating some?


Posted by: Thorn | Link to this comment | 12- 9-15 8:22 AM

3 c bread flour
1 package yeast
1 1/2 t salt
1 1/2 c warm water
chopped olives (I've been using kalamata but whatever) (1-2 cups ish)
olive oil to coat the resting bowl
cornmeal for dusting

mix flour, yeast, salt, water into floppy dough. Coat with oil, cover with plastic wrap, rest until doubled.

fold olives in, wrestle into a ball shape again. Coat with cornmeal and cover with towel. Rest until doubled again. Put a heavy pot (dutch oven or similar) in the oven and heat to 450.

Put the dough in the pot and bake covered for 30 minutes then uncovered for 20-30 more.

Try not to let Heebie slice it until it's cooled off for a little while.

Also, if your house floods in the middle of baking it and the electricity shuts off and you have to evacuate, just leave the bread in the oven and then come back and get it 7 hours later and put it back in the oven at your friends' house. It'll turn out fine.

(Also, if you add walnuts to the olive bread --- extra, extra nummy.)

So far the best part of the kittens is Rascal's infatuated/shy response. He alternates between chasing them around the floor and hiding his face in his hands, overwhelmed by the cuteness & fuzziness of it all.
