8 oz. Oregon Hazelnuts (thinly sliced)
3 oz. salt
4 3⁄4 oz. malt syrup (non-diastic)
4 3⁄4 oz. honey
3 1⁄2 oz. yeast (compressed)

Steps

2. Allow about 10 min. proof time prior to make-up.

Make-up:

We’ve been very impressed with this new model, and it shows great promise in getting meals to children who otherwise would not be able to leave their housing project.

Having never personally experienced a hurricane, I can only imagine the horrors faced by the millions of people whose lives were affected by Harvey and Irma in late August and early September. It’s a group that comprises uncounted noncommercial operations, including Houston Independent School District, which serves 215,000 students.
