    8                    Flour, bread
      3/4                Polenta -- uncooked
    6       pt           Parsley flakes [dry]
    3       pt           Garlic -- crushed
    2       pk           Yeast
    2       pt           Salt, preferably

   Pepper; coarse black
     Proof yeast in 4 T of the water. Mix all the dry
   ingredients in a bowl, then add the liquids. Turn the
   dough onto a floured surface and knead it for 10-12
   minutes.The dough should have a coarse look, but will
   be cohesive, stretchy, tacky but not sticky, and
   resilient. Allow the dough to rise for about 1-1/2
   hours (until double in size). Punch it down, and allow
   it to rise again for 1-1 1/2 hours. Punch it down
   again. Cut the dough into two (2) pieces and form into
   rounds or french loaves. Allow to proof for 1 hour,
   then bake like french breads in a 350 oven with steam
   or spray for 45 minutes.  Cool before cutting.
