Baking bread

On Boxing Day at the Veenpark open-air museum these men were baking bread the traditional way. In the old days, instead of inside a farm kitchen the ovens in which bread was baked were outside in a separate building. They were mostly very basic and built of bricks, with a small half round masonry oven.

We bought a freshly-baked raisin bread to take home. Delicious with some butter!

  5. I'm still awaiting breakfast, so that bread looks scrumptious! As I recall, back in the 18th century in this country most homes were built so that the kitchen was located in a separate building. I guess kitchens were always catching fire and that was the whole darn place didn't burn down.

  8. We had some homebaked bread today but it came out of a bread machine. It was mocha bread and it was delicious. The raisin bread looks soooo good.
