Before I begin to make a series of new challah recipes to learn to make this bread without my bread machine, I have posted a recipe for the original challah. I have been making this bread for about 15 years. It comes out so well that my daughters have gone on record that I should not even try to make anything different because I already make a perfect challah. My daughters do not always agree or agree that I am an expert in something. So, while they are away, I will be playing around with different recipes and attempting to make challah with only a sourdough starter instead of commercial yeast.
This will require patience, kneading, and friends to taste the experiements.
