Amazing Grass Wheat Grass Bread
1-cup milk, scalded
1-tablespoon sugar or molasses
1 ½ teaspoons salt
1 yeast packet dissolved in ¼ cup boiling water, cooled until lukewarm
1 ¼ cup water, add a bit more to reach desired consistency
3 ¼ to 4 cups flour to make a firm dough
2 heaping tablespoons Amazing Grass wheat grass powder
Pour hot liquid over sugar, salt and butter. Cool until luke warm. Add yeast, then beat in sufficient flour to make a dough which can be lifted in a mass on the spoon leaving bowl free from small amount of flour on board until loaf is smooth, elastic to the touch, and stiff enough that it will not stick to a clean board when kneading. This will average about 10 minutes. To knead bread properly, fold dough from the back toward the center with finger tips, then press down and away from the kneader with palms of hands. Do this twice, then give dough a quarter turn on board and repeat process. Always turn in same direction. Do not use more flour than is necessary. Put in oiled bowl or one mixed with cold water. Oil top or cover lightly to prevent formation of a crust. Let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk. It will then feel tender and a touch of the finger will leave an impression. Work bread down and let rise a second time until doubled in bulk.
Knead light dough on an unfloured board (to prevent streaks) just enough to distribute gas bubbles evenly. Shape into a ball. Then make into a roll longer than the pan handling as lightly and quickly as possible. Flatten, fold ends to center, press firmly and seal, fold sides to center and seal. Shape into a loaf, place in an oiled pan, smooth side up. The pan should not be more than half full. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk.
Start baking in a hot oven—400 degrees F. After 10 minutes reduce heat to 350 degrees, and bake for 20 additional minutes. If browned sufficiently after the first 10 minutes, place paper over loaves to prevent crust from becoming too brown.
