Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Whole Wheat Bread Machine Challah

This is a nice no fuss way to mix up a single loaf with out much trouble. Its also nice if you have a cold kitchen that make rising bread hard in the winter or need to leave the house on Prep Day. It can also easily tossed in to two loaf pans and baked as regular loaves. It is a sweet bread light bread (as Challah should be!). I have a Zojirushi, which is said to be only machine to use for 100% whole grain breads. I do love it! It is wonderful when life is hectic (or I am pregnant!), because we can still have fresh whole grain bread will no effort at all. It is also wonderful for summer time. I plug it in on the porch and it doesn't up the house like the oven does. (Which is important in the south!)

1 1/2 cups water
5 egg yolks
1/3 cup oil
4 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup Rapedura/Sucanat (or natural sugar)
1 tbsp. active dry yeast (we use Saf yeast - instant)

Place all ingredients in bread machine pan according to the manufactures direction and start the dough cycle.

Preheat the oven to 350. Divide the dough as you like and braid into challahs. If you divide it in half you will make two medium sized challahs. Let the dough rest and rise on a greased baking pan for 30 minutes.
Bake for 30 minutes.
