For our Harvest Celebration. We made our own bread. 

How to make bread- sieve the flour, add the salt, then add yeast. 
Next mix the dry ingredients together.


Then add the oil and the water and mix together. 


Then we kneaded the dough into rolls and left it to rise. It doubled in size. 


We baked our rolls for 30 minutes. Our rolls tasted delicious.
