Back in the day—we’ll not MY day, but I’m thinking around the time the New Testament was written, Jewish women met daily (minus the Sabbath) at the local well or river to collect their daily supply of water, wash the kids, exchange ideas, advice and gossip.
Think Starbucks without the coffee.
So consider this post our morning at the river…uh..except for the gossip part. Let’s pretend we were discussing baking. Do you have a baking tip? I’d love to hear it. Here’s mine:
I love baking scones and biscuits, but I hate cutting butter into flour. So now, I just make sure the butter is very very cold, and grate it into the flour. Today I needed 4 Tbsp. for Irish Soda Bread. So I dipped the end of the cube of cold butter into the measured flour to keep it from sticking to the grater (not necessary, but helpful) and grated down to one-half the cube right over the bowl of dry ingredients. Bam. Done. Just use a fork to stir and add liquid ingredients. Don’t forget to give me your baking advice. Meet you at the river again tomorrow.
