Bread making is something I’ve been around for several years now. My mom bakes homemade sourdough all the time not only for our family, but for the members of her CSA too. However, I’ve never been much of a fan of sourdough so I’ve spent the past few months learning and experimenting with making my own homemade bread.
Aside from my love of sweet breads, I also really enjoy making herb loaves. They can be the perfect addition to a homecooked dinner. With butter or without they are so tasty.
I’ve played with a couple herb blends now, and this one is one of my favorites. Rosemary and thyme pair well not only in cooking, but in baking too! Rosemary is very fragrant and found in many Italian dishes, because it grows very well in the Mediterranean region. It has a woody taste. Thyme also grows well in the Mediterranean region and so it is frequently paired with rosemary in Italian cuisine.
One thing to keep in mind with this bread, however, is that is takes a long time to make. The herbs must be left to steep for at least six hours in order to extract the most flavor.
As always, I hope y’all enjoy this recipe! If you make it and enjoy it, be sure to snap a picture and post it on your Instagram or Facebook. Tag me and I’ll be sure to give it a like! I love seeing y’all make my recipes.
