Your Grandma Lu developed this recipe by trial and error and she actually sold the bread at one point in her life at the local health food store.
It took me many years to get it just right myself, when I started making it regularly, about every other week or so I got it. I had to watch Mom make is several times. So, you have to learn by doing and watching...it's the only way. It's the best bread, I don't ever want to be out of it!
Katya loves to eat the dough, yuk! The first time she
did she gagged on it, but she kept going back for more.
I told her that her belly was going to blow up like the
bread does when it gets big as it's rising. She didn't
buy it and kept on pulling on my dough!
David got into the garlic, he must have thought the bread needed some.
