Bread in olden times.
The bread the people ate long ago is a lot different than what they eat now.It was made from wheat, barley, and oats.
Oaten bread was almost the staple food and was used long ago.It was mixed with milk or milk and water rolled out with a roller or bottle on a griddle and baked on both sides. It would hold in good condition for a month or more.
They ground the corn with a grindstone as they called it. It consisted of two round stones fitting into each other and then worked with a handle.
