Navajo Fry Bread
Please √ Like √ Comment √ Share √ Thank you Confessions of Crafty Witches
Frybread can be eaten alone or with various toppings such as honey, jam, or hot beef. Frybread can also be made into tacos (Indian tacos). It is a simple complement to meals

Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
( Traditionally it was made with 4 cups of Blue Bird flour
but you can use any Flour you prefer )
1 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups vegetable oil for frying
3/4 cup warm water
1 cup powdered sugar, as optional topping
1 cup honey, as optional topping

Directions

In the bowl of a food processor, mix the dry ingredients. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the oil and the water, and process until smooth. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until the dough is just elastic and comes together, being careful not to over work. Shape the dough into a ball, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. Flatten each piece and roll into a 7-inch circle, making as thin as possible. Poke a hole in the center with the handle of a wooden spoon or your finger.

In a large saute pan or deep fryer, heat the 6 cups of oil to 360 degrees F. Slip the rounds 1 at a time into the hot oil and cook for 2 minutes, turning once with a long-handled spoon. Drain on paper towels and repeat with the remaining dough.
Sprinkle the fried bread with powdered sugar and drizzle with honey, as desired, and serve.

Beltane Bonfire Cakes!

As the light from the morning sun begins to reduce the darkness on the first of May each year in Norfolk, England, people in times past, would gather on the beacon hills along the Michael Leyline which runs southwest to the tip of Cornwall. They would wait until the first sliver of the sun was visible and then light an welcoming bonfire to greet the sun. As the first fire became visible to the next group across the valley, the second fire would be started and down the line this process would be repeated and repeated as the sun rose on what those gathered would call Beltane morning.
