French Bread / Franskbrød

A classic French bread recipe found in “The Fleischmann Treasury of Yeast Baking” published in 1962
French Bread / Franskbrød

The French call their long, slender loaves of crusty bread “pain ordiaire,” or “everyday bread.” They serve it at almost every meal, from breakfast where it accompanies the morning coffee or hot chocolate, through dinner, where it is used to “mop up” every bit of sauce or gravy.

Because of its rather bland flavour, it may accompany any main dish. Its crispness makes it a special attraction with soups, salads and soft entrees such as spaghetti or eggs. It may even appear with the dessert course when dessert is cheese and fruit.

headingGáhkko – Sami Bread / Samisk Brød

Gáhkko is a traditional Sami flat bread /bread that has a faint taste of anise. Excellent, and delicious as an accessory for stews and soups, and gorgeous with any kind of cheese. There are countless recipes and ways to bake it, but the best way and what gives the bread the best flavour is to fry them in a dry frying pan on the campfire. It works just as fine to bake this bread on a griddle or in an oven as well. Some sami bakers  make them them large, some make them small.

A great bread recipe found on spar.no

Oats are sweet, earthy-flavored grains. They are low in fat and cholesterol free. They are also easily digested and provide a great source of protein. Oats have almost no gluten so flour made from oats needs to be mixed with white or whole wheat flour for yeast breads. The more oats you use, the denser and more crumbly your bread will be.
