Before you embark on bread making, buy an instant read thermometer. All bread is done at 200 degrees.
Ingredients
  • 1 small russet potato
  • 1 Tbsp dry yeast
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh dill, minced
  • 3 to 3½ cups of all purpose flour
Instructions
  1. Peel potato and cut into large pieces. Place in a saucepan, cover with water, bring to a boil and cook until soft. Drain and reserve the liquid. Mash potato and set aside.
  2. Cool 1 cup of the potato water to 100 degrees and then add the yeast. Proof for about 10 minutes.
  3. Combine mashed potato, sugar, buttermilk, butter, salt, dill and yeast mixture.
  4. Slowly add the flour and knead to produce a smooth, springy dough. This may be 2½ cups of flour... it may be 4 ... it depends on where you are, so just go by feel. You want a TACKY dough, not a dry dough and not a sticky dough.
  5. Place dough in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Shape the dough into either a loaf pan or rolls (be sure to cut the top of the roll with a pair of scissors so they don't explode in the oven).
  8. Bake until the internal temperature reads 200 degrees.
  9. Enjoy!
