¾ tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 T. butter
1 1/4 c - 2 c. buttermilk

Directions:
Mix together flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda.

Add 1 tbsp. butter, scooping flour until the butter isn’t lumpy. Add 1 ¼ c. buttermilk (add up to 2 c. total if it looks too dry). Mix the dough with floured hands. Put it on wax paper and roll it into a ball. Knead it (the more you knead it, the finer it will become). Shape the dough so that it is about 1 in. thick. Use a floured knife to cut four lines (not deep) in the center.

Bake for about 25-30 minutes at 400° F. Do not bake it longer than 35-40 min. Rap on the bread and if it sounds hollow, put it on the cooling rack. Run butter (just a small amount) along the top and bottom of the bread and wrap it in a slightly moistened tea towel. Once it cools, put it in a dry towel until you are ready to serve.
