Harvest Bread

It’s hard to believe that August is almost over.  For those of us who are attuned to the seasons via our gardens, this is the harvest time of the year.  In our corner of California, it’s also the time when the summer vegetables are winding down and the time has arrived to plant our winter crops.  I’m planting Kale, Beets, Carrots, and probably some Broccoli as a start.

But today’s harvest screams for some bread….some yummy, nutty, sweet bread.

Summer Squash, Apple, Hazelnut Bread

The garden supplied the squash and apples.

Our summer squash is at the end of the road but I found two hidden under the leaves.

And, I picked Gravenstein apples from the tree (a Baker’s Dozen – 13 – this year) from our little tree.

A short trip down the Google road and I found a great recipe for Zucchini Apple Bread.  Most sweet bread recipes are a variation on the same theme, so I was looking for a recipe that had less oil and sugar and incorporated whole wheat flour.  I’m in love with the taste and texture of whole wheat pastry flour. I tossed in hazelnuts because that’s what I had in the pantry

Just a little bit of time in the kitchen while the day was still cool and we had this loaf of goodness to share with friends when they drop over.  I know my meeting with a new business partner went so much better with a cup of tea and a slice of bread!
