Bread Baking and Farmers’ Market

July 29, 2011

Every Thursday I bake bread and cinnamon rolls to sell at our local farmers’ market. It has been a great summer project, and it’s lots of fun! I usually start baking in the morning and I finish in the early afternoon. Farmers’ market starts at about five. The temperature outside was 102 degrees today while we were on our way to farmers’ market- very hot indeed! But some kind venders let me set up next to their tent, and I can sit in its shade.  Here are a few pictures I took of baking and selling bread.

This machine is called a whisper mill (although it really sounds like a jet engine! :-) ). It grinds kernels of wheat into flour.

This is the bread dough. I took this picture while in the process of slamming (which prevents air bubbles) and shaping each loaf.

The finished result! Loaves of fresh bread cooling on racks.

Making the cinnamon rolls…

…and drizzling them with icing.

Here’s a picture of me at my table.

There’s a lot of work that goes into baking and selling bread, but it’s definitely worth it. I’m so grateful for the wonderful opportunity!

    This post brings back memories of the time that we baked bread together…oh how I miss those days…

    I’m making cinnamon rolls for Elijah’s birthday on Monday, thought my recipe is nowhere near as healthy as yours!

    Have a lovely and blessed day. Soli Deo Gloria! Love,

    Hannah

    P.S.

    How do you manage to look so “cool” (with sunglasses and all :) in 102 degree weather? I’d look like a … well let’s not think about that!

    Your bread set-up looks just like mine! I met your parents yesterday at Bethlehem Baptist Church. My husband actually met your dad first at 3M last week, so we met up with them yesterday and gave your family a tour of the church building. We are so glad to have met them!

    We are praying for your family’s transition. And I love your blog so far!
