    1. I can't knead anymore since I developed nerve damage. I use the bread maker on knead only and can now make a lot of things I couldn't for a while

  8. Great stuff. Thanks for taking the time to post these. I heard an origin story of the indian fry bread and how it came about. Obviously the indians did not use white wheat flour until the white man gave it to them, and oil, and flour, were part of the very few provisions they received when they were herded into the reservation. So needless to say, they had to figure out something to do with it, and thus fry bread, kinda cool, other than the sad part about the indians being forced onto reservations.

    1. I don't know about this recipe but I cook up my entire batch a freeze the extra it doesn't take long to thaw when pulled out great for nights I don't want to cook. I just heat shortly in microwave top with extra ingredients I keep also frozen (don't heat bread if you have extra beans and meat also cold until added that way its all hot!) This saves on eating out bill and I get to eat my favorite dish!!!!
