I was blessed to have a wonderful mother-in-law. Even though I only had her for about 10 years, I learned so much from her. One of the things she taught me was the Jones family recipe for homemade bread. This is one of several recipes that has been handed down to family only.
The tradition goes all the way back to Jonesy’s great grandma. That was back when no one measured ingredients…a little of this, a bit of that. That’s how it was passed to me and I hope my daughter and daughter-in-law carry on the tradition.
After it raises once I separate it into loaf pans and let it raise a second time.
Did I mention this makes alot of bread?
Homemade bread is a favorite tradition around here. I always think about my mother-in-law whenever I make it. Maybe that is why families start traditions. It’s a way to help us remember those we have lost.
What are some of your family traditions? I’d love to hear them.
