"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Note from Janet: Joyce, This was among my recipes. It's from either Aunt Lela or Grand-mom, (Elizabeth Hutchison). I don't know what it is. You can call it "Mystery Bread".

This was a copy of the actual handwritten recipe. There is no flour in it and no baking instructions, so, I'm more inclined to think it might be a starter. What do you think?
