Subject: Orange Bread
Orange Bread 3 1/2 cups high gluten bread flour 1/2 cake yeast or one packet of dried yeast 1 1/2 cups orange juice and pulp (Fresh Squeezed) 1/2 cup diced, candied orange peel 1 teaspoon of salt Using about four medium sized oranges, squeeze them and add the pulp until you have 1 1/2 cups of juice and pulp. Add the yeast to this and allow to dissolve and start to work. You may need more or less oranges. In a large bowl, place the 3 1/2 cups of flour and add the orange peel and salt. Stir the ingredients together. Add the orange juice and stir until you have a cohesive mass. Knead for ten minutes and allow to rest for five. Knead again for ten minutes and let rest for five. Finally knead for five minutes and then coat the dough ball with oil and allow to double - depending on temperature and yeast this can take between one and five hours. Punch down the bread and allow to double again. Finally shape into a loaf and allow to expand for one hour. Place in an oven at 400F for fifty minutes. Eat with orange marmalade.
