Greetings dear hearts..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth ..
We have been having some Winter weather.. Snow ... Not a lot but a bit every day..Spring is in the air, though... smile..
I found this recipe on the web HERE.. I did not pin it as it was just so simple...
I have had it going for two days now and I love it..
All you have to do is slice up one fresh lemon, a few sprigs of fresh rosemary and a bit of vanilla ...
Fill your medium size pot two thirds full of water and add the ingredients and simmer on very low..
Keep adding water as needed and it smells lovely..
Kind of sweet citrus and herb...
It lasts for 2 to 3 days..
Hope you enjoy it..
I was trying out my new Kitchen Aid and decided to make bread..
This is a lovely recipe and Terry loved it..
Who doesn't love homemade bread, though, eh?
I divided it into two loaves and on one I added chopped fresh rosemary and kosher salt..
and the other one I left plain ...
Here the bread is served with a bit of rosemary oil..
Homemade Bread with Rosemary...
4 T. sugar
2 T. of butter
2 cups of warm water
2 T. rapid rise yeast
3 tsp. salt
1 cup wholewheat flour
4 cups of unbleached white flour
chopped fresh rosemary
In your Kitchen Aid bowl or another bowl put 4 T. sugar and 2 T. of butter with 2 cups of quite warm water..Stir well with a spatula..
Add 2 T. rapid rise yeast and let stand for a few minutes..
Put 3 tsp. salt in with 1 cup of wholewheat flour and add to bowl and start kneading .. Keep adding until you have added 4 cups of white flour..
Knead for 8 to 10 minutes..
Let rise until doubled in a warm place..
When doubled separate into two rolls..
Shape and place on a cookie sheet and let rise again..(doubled)
Turn your oven to 375 degrees F ...
Put one egg white and 1 T. water and whisk..
Brush on your bread and sprinkle with chopped fresh rosemary and a sprinkle of kosher salt..
Or just brush with the egg white..
Cook for 20 to 25 minutes..
a little something just for you.. smile..
Oatmeal and Rosemary Bath Bag..
In a piece of cheesecloth or muslin (or and old hankie)
place a handful of old fashioned oatmeal and a few sprigs of rosemary...
Tie it up with a piece of ribbon or string which is long enough to hang from your bathtub faucet ...
This is a great skin softener and very frugal..
You could substitute the rosemary for lavender, too..
if you do not have a rosemary plant growing then pick some up at your grocers..
If you live here then you can buy a growing rosemary plant at Sobeys for $4.00..Keep it on your kitchen sill or counter and it will soon be time to plant it outside...
Just a little tip for you .. grin..
