One of our family favorites...freshly ground, whole wheat bread! Syd learned to make it this summer and became quite the master! Directions:
In your mixer, using a dough hook, place 7 cups freshly ground whole wheat flour and 5 cups hot tap water. Stir until mixed well. In a seperate cup, mix 1/2 cup hot tap water with 2 TBSP. yeast and 1 tsp. of sugar to activate. Stir to dissolve. Add 2 TBSP. salt to dough, 2/3 cup honey and 2/3 cup olive oil. Next add the yeast. Add in 5 more cups of flour. Let knead. Add more flour until dough becomes sticky (like cookie dough). Knead in mixer for 10 minutes on a low speed.
Spray four loaf pans and using olive oil on your hands, divide the dough into fourths and shape into loaves. Bake at 325 for 45 minutes.
