Recipe
BIRDSEED BREAD
This recipe can be doubled or tripled. Oven setting:

375 Yield: 3 LARGE heavy loaves.
4 c. warm water

2 pkgs or 2 Tblsp. yeast

1/2 c. brown sugar or molasses( I use molasses)

1/2 c honey

1/2c. oil ( I use olive or canola)

4 tsp. salt

About 12c. flour ( use unbleached and whole wheat, wheat being about 3c.)

1/2 c. each,all of the following: wheat, cracked wheat, spelt, oats( whole or rolled),sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, barley, millet and/or any other grain you can think of.
Boil hard grains in more water than need until soft and chewy. DO NOT boil sesame or sunflower seeds.
When draining the cooked grain save the water and measure it toward the 4 c. water needed. Cool grain and water before adding the following:
Dissolve yeast in a small amount warm water with a small amount of sugar( 3 tsp.) Measure flour into large separate bowl molasses, honey, oil and salt. Add cooled water from boiled grains, the yeast mixture, sesame and sunflower seeds and cooked grains. Knead ( This is the fun part, it's really sticky so remove all jewlery and grease your hands. I do add about 1/2- 3/4 c. flour to board and dough to help)Texture should be smooth ans satiny with grains (about 8- 10 minutes). Place in a greased bowl( LG.) and cover with a damp cloth, let rise until double.
Preheat oven to 375 Punch down and let rise again. after second rise work down and divide into 3 loaves or loaves and rolls combination. Place in greased and floured pans, bake for 10 minutes at 375 then reduce oven to 350 and bake 30 minutes more or until chesnut brown and sound hollow when thumped. Turn out on to cooling racks, butter tops to keep moist and supple. Enjoy, this is a very hearty bread and stay moist a week, thats all the longer it lasts here!
You can freeze the dough just AFTER the FIRST rise, thaw and let rise then bake as directed above.

Crafts and Tutorials
Soap on rope
3 white bars of soap Cheese grater
Twine (1/4 inch thick)
Warm water
Wax paper
Cookie cutters, hollow ones (sports shapes are great) or you can just make a ball
Disposable gloves
Grate the soap bars into a large bowl. Add warm water slowly until mix is like a thick oatmeal. Mix well with your hands and set aside. Lay out wax paper, then cut twine long enough so it can hang in the shower. Pat soap mixture into a ball around twine. Make sure twine is in the center of the ball. Place ball and twine on wax paper until dry (about 24 hours).
If using cookie cutters - Put soap mixture into basic cookie cutter . Pack tightly. Let dry for 72 hours or for three days. When the soap is dry, pop it out of the cookie
