* semolina is the flour the color of corn meal which is used to make pasta. Before it is cooked it has a gritty texture, but obviously is smooth when cooked.

** Italian Seasoning is a mixture of spices available at the grocery store. It may vary depending on the company making it, but it usually has some mixture of marjoram, thyme, rosemary, savory, sage, oregano, and basil.

When I made a 1 1/2 lb. loaf the bread hit the top of my 2 lb. Oster Bread Machine (and then I have to cut a small part of the top off the top when it is done to make sure no one gets a doughy piece.

This is wonderful with lunch meat and is one of my favorite breads.

Could you put the original hand method of baking this bread? I would love to try it but don't have a bread machine.

What's in season?
