From our Facebook Page:
Watching bread rise might be an appropriate activity for dull men, especially if the dough hasn’t been salted and slow rise yeast is used.
Anticipating the eventual baking of a solid, bland loaf of bread can be a tonic for the nerves.
That’s right Jim, an appropriate activity indeed. It falls into our Safe Excitement category of things on our website.
There are several YouTube videos of bread rising. The picture above is from this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1w09QKf9GU
Some might have a problem with this one, however, as it’s a time lapse view of bread rising, perhaps appearing to rise too fast.
