The Poland library hosted a no knead bread making class on Nov. 19.
Librarian Missy Williams organized the event, with all ingredients pre measured and provided by the library.
“This project is fun because its easy, though its not something you an complete in 24 hours,” Williams said.
Sixteen people attended the event, each bringing their own bowl to take the dough home with them.
Williams provided recipes to those in attendance and went through step by steps alterations they can make to the recipe to suit their taste.
“You can change out different kinds of flower, do different salt or lower amounts of salt, as long as you keep the chemistry of the dough consistent,” Williams said.
To kick off the event Williams instructed those in attendance about how no knead bread differs from regular bread dough.
She suggested leaving the dough to rise for at least 48 hours, because the more it rises the better the flavor of the bread.
After her presentation attendees mixed their own dough.
The library also provided tools for those at the event, including Danish dough whisks that Williams said are a great by if you plan to make dough regularly.
