In the early 1980's Ron and Brenda bought a wheat grinder and a Bosch mixer with a bread making attachment. This receipe came from their friends John and Maureen Firmston, the couple who sold them this exquistite Bosch machine. This healthy, filling bread was our go-to recipe for a number of years. Excellent for toasting.
