- Long ago there were six sorts of bread, Bere bread, rye bread, barley-bread, oat-bread and wheaten bread.
Bere grew like barley. It was thrashed and ground and baked. It made black bread. Rye grew like wheat and was cut and ground and baked.
The oats was cut and thrashed and made into oatenmeal at a mill. Then it was made stirabout of and when cold it was baked and lots of butter was rubbed on it. I ate some of it a couple of times.
The wheaten bread was made from wheaten flour. The wheat was cut and thrashed and then ground at a mill. then it was made into bread with salt and soda and butter-milk mixed through it.
