31 Days of Bread in July: Russian/Georgian Chrysanthemum Bread
I looked at a website today with breads from all over the world, and it sparked my interest. It gave me the motivation I needed to make it though the next seven days of making bread. I looked at some bread called Karavai which looked amazing. I didn't know there was such art in bread making! But, because of time, I decided to go with a simpler one that was fun to make. It is a Russian/Georgian Chrysanthemum Bread. You make it out of dough that is cut into circles and then brushed with a spread and folded in half, etc. I didn't have any garlic spread, so I made my own version with butter, cottage cheese, a garlic scape, a very small onion from the garden, Italian cheeses, red pepper flakes and a bit of garlic salt. I put them all into the food processor and mixed them. It turned out well. Too bad I didn't write it down!
I really enjoyed doing something totally different and new. It also tasted great!!!!
