Bread, at its simplest, requires no other ingredients than flour and salt. And since most of us are lucky enough to have access to running water - and can probably afford a bag of two dollar flour - the dream of homemade bread needn't be a complicated one.
I've come to use it instead of tomato paste on pizzas, and a dollop will often brighten up an Asian stir-fry sauce well too. Though ultimately, to have a relish like this on hand for cheese toasties is almost entirely reason enough.
It's been a while since I've sat down to write one of these!
