Cold Brewed Coffee

Great for iced coffee!

The recipe I used called for a whole cup of coffee grinds for a quart sized mason jar. I tried again using 1/2 cup (both times added more water after I took the grinds out). I think a whole cup was too much but 1/2 cup wasn't enough.
So, whatever your preference, do it!
Put the grinds in the bottom of a quart sized mason jar, add water. Mix with a fork until all grounds are mixed well with the water. Seal jar up and place in fridge for 8-12 hours, over night.

Then in the morning, when you are ready and have time, this is how I took the grinds out.

I used cheese cloth, placed over a funnel over a large cup. Then I poured the coffee grind/water into it.

Then you have your cold brewed coffee! Stays good for up to a month!

Fill cup with ice, add coffee.

Then add sugar and creamer (if you so desire)

Stir together and enjoy some yummy coffee!!!

Amish White Bread Recipe

Amish White Bread Recipe

Some of the yummiest bread I have ever eaten. Perfect toasted and buttered (stick butter). Just yummy!

2 cups warm water
2/3 cups white sugar
1 1/2 tbsp active dry yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 cups bread flour

In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, and then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam.

Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves, and place into two well oiled 9x5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans.

Bake at 350 degrees F  for 30 minutes.
