Garlic bread and lotion

The bread turned out well. Not perfect, I need to tweek it a bit to get a higher rise, but I was happy it worked as well as it did. I used James Beard’s French Bread recipe from Beard on Bread and was really surprised it didn’t call for a second rise. I think next time I will do a bit of a second rise and see if it gets me a less dense loaf. The dough was a joy to work with though. Also could have used a bit more time in the oven.

Nice new batch of lotions done as well. I am working on increasing the creaminess and decreasing the oiliness.

Shea Butter, jojoba, sweet almond oil, lanolin and our beeswax.

Today is supposed to be sunny and in the 50’s, I might finally get that coop cleaned out!
