Bread and Jam

A day off today, and a chance to do some bread-making with Emma.

We make bread every so often, she enjoys it, and it is surprisingly easy (as Liz Williams regularly describes on her blog).

We use flour grown locally (the farms are listed on the back of the packet) and milled at the Wessex Mill in Wantage bought at Added Ingredients in Abingdon.

Today we used 'Six Seed Flour' which has produced lovely brown bread and rolls full of flavour and texture.

We're sitting here eating it with some lovely Raspberry and Kiwi jam from Local Roots, another newish Abingdon shop that sources all its stock from within a few miles of the town.

Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.
