Making Rēwana Bread

As part of our unit looking at Kai (food) Rooms 18 and 19 had a go at making Rēwana bread. This is made using a home made yeast (called a bug) out of potatoes.

The bug is prepared up to a week ahead by mashing potatoes with flour and sugar and being left to ferment (age) in a warm place.

This 'bug' is then added to a basic bread mixture and left to prove for a minimum of 4 hours. We baked it and ate it with lashings of butter and strawberry jam. Yum!

If you wish to have a go at making it yourself click here for the recipe.

He kai reka!
