Sweet and red, great in bread

bread with grapes

Every year I think the same thing: it would be nice if, during the grape harvest ,after we’ve cook our lunch in the wood burning oven ,  I baked some homemade bread with grapes. But, every year is the same, I do think about it, but actually never do it! In fact I am justified because there are so many things to do before ,during and after the harvest,  that in the end I forget . Plus the idea of kneading the bread is not on the list of priorities. Any way the grape harvest is over , but a few grapes remain. Sweet and red …in fact I probably had at least 2 basket full . So, I  decided to do this experiment. I call it an “experiment “because I sincerely  have never made bread before . I used my little electric oven and honestly I was expecting a disaster  . Burnt, flat and sad , bread that would look more like a bad pizza base  . But NO!  I couldn’t believe it. Golden , crispy and slightly plump. Of course, being the first time I decided to make a lot. Yes, because I always exaggerate.  Four loaves in total , three to freeze and the fourth for Nick and me to eat!

Ingredients for 4 loaves
1 kg of wheat flour
25 grams fresh yeast
500 ml of warm water
100 ml warm milk
A pinch of salt
 40 grams of EVO oil
1 bunch seedless red grapes
How is work:
Dissolve the yeast in warm water. Combine all ingredients and mix to a soft dough. Let the dough rest in a warm place for 30-40 minutes in a bowl covered with a cotton cloth. Divide the dough into 4 pieces. Cover the 4 pieces and let rise again for 60 minutes.  Bake  in preheated oven at 180/190 degrees for 45 minutes.
