Irish Brown Bread Recipe

4 c Stone Ground Whole wheat flour
2 c White flour
1-1/2 ts Salt
1-1/2 ts Baking soda
2 c Buttermilk or sweet milk
2 tb Butter
2 tb Sugar

Mix the whole wheat flour throughly with the white flour. Rub the butter into the flours. Add the salt, and soda.

Make a well in the center and gradually mix in the liquid. Stir with a wooden spoon. You may need less, or more liquid - it depends on the absorbent quality of the flour. the dough should be soft but managable.

Knead the dough into a ball in the mixing bowl with your floured hands.

Put in on a lightly floured baking sheet and with the palm of your hand flatten out in a circle 1 1/2 inches thick. with a knife dipped in flour, make a cross through the center of the bread so that it will easily break into quarters when it is baked.

Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes, reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake a further 15 minutes.

If the crust seems too hard, wrap the baked bread in a damp tea cloth. Leave the loaf standing upright until it is cool.

The bread should not be cut until it has set - about 6 hours after it comes out of the oven.

Deep Fried Watermelon Recipe

For those of you already in a State Fair of Texas frame of mind, check this out. It's something only we Southerners would do with - or to - watermelon.

1 watermelon, about 10 pounds
11 tablespoons flour
7 tablespoons cornstarch
2 egg whites, beaten
3 cups vegetable oil for deep-frying use
Powdered sugar

Cut the watermelon in half and scoop out the pulp. Remove any seeds from the pulp and cut the pulp into diamonds. Coat with flour.

Mix the egg whites with cornstarch and a little water into a batter. Heat the oil in a wok or skillet over high heat to about 250 F, or until small bubbles appear around a 1-inch cube of day-old bread dropped into the oil.

Dip the watermelon pieces in the batter and add to the oil.
Deep-fry until the coating becomes firm.

Turn off the heat, and continue to deep-fry the watermelon until it is
light brown.

Remove, drain well, sprinkle with the sugar, and serve.
Makes 12 servings.
