Bread baking

In history, bread was honored by our ancestors. It signified life and God's blessing, and was known as the most important folk food. Bread was consumed with all foods such as: vegetables, soups, or meat. Homemade bread is made from a mixture of wheat and rye, or wheat and corn flour, and occasionally pure wheat flour. Although Its size and height varied by country or bread type, the average weight was 5–6 kg, and its basic diameter was 20–25 cm.
In the past, families usually kneaded and baked for their family regularly, depending on the size of the family and oven. Bread was baked in a special oven that was usually placed in the house or yard, and it took 18 to 20 hours to prepare. Back in the day, bread-making was a woman’s job. Girls started learning to knead at the age of 14 or 15 and had to practice bread-making until they got married.
