I should have made the statement about the mill in another thread I saw that had a picture of the mill in it.  I apologize to both of you for not properly following the rules of posting in the bread section. Miss Norman you are part of the staff so please feel free to delete my incorrect posting. Once again, I truly apologize to the both of you. Thanks, Geno.

I guess it would be like funnel cakes, only with the leftover dough. Geno

As a kid we ate dark German bread with peanut butter.  We really liked it and I can't remember the name of it, but it was good. I love all breads, but I'm diabetic and have to my sugar when I eat it. Geno

Douglas, I guess I was making more of a statement about the mill and the relationship to guys who farmed and using the mill to make a better and healthier bread. The size of the mill doesn't look like it would be too big for the area on the dredge I was working. I hope this clarifies my post in this thread a little better, Geno.

I love fruitcake and only my MOM and me ate it out of 9 people in the family. I love mincemeat pie too, and I was the only one in the family that ate it. Geno

My mom taught me how to measure the small stuff like salt and other things that go in bread by hand. She taught me how to use the palm and it really works. It might not be perfect, but I call it fudging a recipe and I can still make breads that taste good. I've been retired for 10 years now but I'm glad to be back on a bigger scale and ready to build the outside oven in the spring. Remember dry things are measured in regular measuring devices and wet things are measured in liquid measuring devices. I hope others chime in to say I'm right or wrong. Just my 2 cents about measuring. Geno

I bet it doesn't taste like bugs either. I wish they would quit the bleaching of our flours; they take away the good only to add them back in. I think the USA is like only 1 or countries that do it.
Bug flour - you'd never know it's in there. Geno

I used to make cornbread with beans on the river boats and the best cornbread is made with chopped onions, jalapenos and bacon. I also used to make hushpuppies with those ingredients as well. Let me tell you when you do it with those ingredients the taste is phenomenal, and you won't go back to plain cornbread again. Use bacon grease and buttermilk too it adds flavor you'll like. Geno
