Olive OilI’ve written about all kinds of breads, be they yeast, sweet or sourdough. But we haven’t discussed all the wonderful things that can go with bread.

Butters, dipping oils, jams, all the flavourful little things that can make your bread truly sing, albeit, the bread by itself is pretty good.

Below I will give you two recipes, one for a butter, the other a dipping oil that I devised. 

As for jams, I prefer to make freezer jams, especially strawberry, when they are in season. There’s also a very tasty cranberry one, technically a jelly, that you can make from the bottled juice. Another interesting one is Tomato Jam, unusual but very tasty, for those times when there are just too many tomatoes! Stay tuned for Tomato Jam and Cranberry Jelly, in the meantime: 

Cinnamon Brown Sugar Butter 

Back when I had a B&B, I used to make this for my clients. I start with about 1/2 cup butter, softened. From there I add about 1 to 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and about 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.

The oils sound delightful.  I think a nece rye would be good with them.

The wheat we are eating is killing us. I've lost 153 pounds in the past 24 months by cutting out the wheat and sugars. I feel great. Folks the wheat we have today is not the wheat we ate as children back in the 60s. It's been modified and is a poison to our bodies. Read the book "Wheat Belly" by Dr. William Davis, and the book "Why We Get Fat And What To Do About It" by Gary Taubes. I've put my weight loss journey down in an online blog. I would love to share with you.
