- . , , The Adams County Record Wednesday, May 16, 2012 King Arthur Comes to Council BY DALE FISK "The longest five minutes of your life." That's how Pare lensen described the time a person should wait after fresh-baked bread comes out of the oven before cutting a piece to eat. If you don't wait a few minutes for it to cool, the loaf will be very soft and too easy to smash instead of retaining its shape. It works best to let it cool completely before slicing; but who can wait that long!? Jenson is a representative of the King Arthur Flour Company who travels around the country teaching school children how to make bread, as part of the company's "Life Skills Bread Baking Program." Even some of us who have made many a loaf of bread learned a few things from her demonstration. Jensen was assisted by two students, Courtney Stanford and Austin Grandy. She explained the science behind bread ingredients and how they work, and put it in terms the kids could understand. She said the most common mistake in making bread is putting in too much flour. When measuring the flour called for in a recipe, you should fluff the flour up and pour it into a measuring cup instead of scooping the cup into the flour container. And then you should add only as much flour as necessary to kneed it properly, up to the amount in the recipe, without exceeding it. e n $ e n explained that one of the things vegetable oil does in a recipe is to help keep the bread fresh longer. She said you should be able to see some bubbles soon after you combine the yeast, warm water and sugar. If you don't, the yeast has probably died. Each student at Council Elementary School was given a bread baking kit, including recipes and the ingredients to make two loaves of bread at home. The kids were encouraged to bake one for themselves and give one to someone. The Sound Of Music Rocks Council Anita Burden with the Cotmcil High School Choir.
