Baking Bread with Sidbury Mill Flour
Andy and I bake our own bread. We enjoy the process of making bread and the results! It also gives us a good reason to search out the old fashioned, independent millers dotted across the South West. Today I am using flour from Sidbury Mill.
Sidbury is a beautiful little village near the seaside resort of Sidmouth. It is extra special to us because Andy has been doing genealogy research and found that he had family living in Sidbury ages ago. The flour I am baking with today was produced by the same water mill his ancestors used all those years ago! It is a rare thing, to have such a real connection with past generations.
If you would like to bake a little history of your own, you can bake an old fashioned Cottage Loaf or a lovely Farm House Loaf by following these recipes from Deb's Dust Bunny .
