If you’ve read my blog for more than a week, you know I love bread! I love eating it, making it and I enjoy trying to bake lots of different kinds!
When I was planning a dinner this summer that included Greek Chicken, I thought about trying to make my own Pita Bread. I know you can buy it, but the last time I did, I could NOT get the pocket to separate so it could be stuffed with fillings! Also, they’re usually dry and tasteless! So I set out looking for a recipe that sounded perfect and doable!
Well, friends, that search led me to the best tasting Pita Bread I’ve ever put in my mouth! Honestly, every time I eat one I feel like I’m eating a pastry! The little bit of honey added gives it just the perfect taste of sweetness! This recipe does take some time, but it is so well worth it! The dough is made THE DAY BEFORE and placed in the fridge overnight to rise, so be advised. The result is a puffy dough that is ready to bake up into beautiful round breads!
Each Pita bread is baked in a very hot oven in a skillet. They only take about 5 minutes to bake! I found that I could do two pans at once, speeding up the process. I’ve made these three times and each time I get a little better and a little faster.
These are so doable that I decided to teach my Apples of Gold girls how to make them. They did a fantastic job!
This is the link to the recipe. Follow it and you will end up with the best Pita bread or even Pita Chips that you have ever tasted! By the way, the recipe says they’re best the day they’re made. I froze mine and had great results!
I took some of the breads and sliced them and served them as Pita Chips as an appetizer (the instructions are in the recipe). There wasn’t a crumb left! They’re especially good warm!! Yum!!
Week 5 in Apples of Gold was a lesson in Purity; a truth that can’t be encouraged enough in a day when we’re told to do whatever makes us happy. God’s Word tells us that a pure life is what is best for us. It starts with a pure heart that leads to pure living, pure motives and a pure life.
Psalm 23:3, 4
Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
Even better than sweet pita bread is fellowship around the table shared with precious women like these attending Apples of Gold!
Who have you invited into your kitchen recently? You don’t even have to have something home-baked to invite someone over! Just open your door! There’s just nothing like sharing a meal and enjoying the sweet conversation and joy of the life-changing principles from God’s Word!
P.S. I do hope you’ll try Pita Breads!
With love from my country kitchen,
