Fresh Oatmeal Bread

The Tassajara Bread book has really been a wonderful friend these past couple years - and breaking free of the bread machine (which has its uses) has been great. Here's a loaf of my wife's latest oatmeal bread - rich and delicious.

Cutting certain breads out of the bread chapter in A History of Connecticut Food was difficult - there are so many individual traditions. Oatmeal bread is one of my all time favorite, and will be part of my tradition from now on.
