Dutch Oven Herb Bread

In the last couple of months, I’ve baked a LOT of bread. I found that I love the entire process, start to finish. Just being present in the moment while mixing, kneading, kneading again after the yeast does its thing… It is so exceptionally cathartic. I cannot imagine skipping that process in favor of a bread machine.

It came together quite quickly with minimal ingredients and paired well with the Brunswick Stew that I made for supper that evening. The herbs used were cut fresh from my garden and given a good rinse. Don’t you just love the fragrance that comes with fresh cut herbs?
