CELEBRATING LAMMAS: Welcoming the Harvest

HOW TO MAKE CRAZY BREAD
Ingredients:
1 Cup Warm Water
1 tsp. Sugar
1 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Yeast
2 1/2 to 3 Cups Flour
1 Tbsp. Melted Butter or Shortening
1 Tbsp. Parmesan Cheese
1 Tbs. Fresh Green Herbs
2 cloves of Garlic

Making Crazy Bread Process:
Mix the water, sugar, and salt together. Sprinkle the yeast over the liquid mixture. Next, stir in 1 cup of flour and melted butter or shortening. Slowly add the rest of the flour until a soft dough forms. Knead this dough for 5 minutes. Let the dough rise for 10 minutes and cover with a damp kitchen towel. Grease the baking sheet and roll the dough into a 9 inch by 3 inch rectangle and cut into 1 inch strips or form into even bread balls. Space evenly on a baking sheet and let rise for 10 mintues. Sprinkle fresh garlic on top. Bake the crazy bread for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. When done baking, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with fresh green herbs and parmesan cheese and enjoy warm!

A LITTLE HISTORY
“Lammas, also known Lughnasadh, is a  celebration of the fruits of the first harvest of all grains, fruits, and vegetables. It is one of the  cross-quarter sabbats and is the first of the three harvest celebrations of the Pagan calendar year. Throughout history, Pagan worshippers  in Ireland, Britain, and Europe have celebrated their bountiful harvests on this  day and offered prayers and sacrifices for the success of future crops. Since  many fruits, vegetables, and grains today are available to us year-round, it is  thought that this celebration is somewhat overlooked. Celebrated on August 1,  the holiday still resonates with many around the world as it marks the end of summer and the welcoming of  autumn.

Lughnasadh is another known name for the holiday. The name  Lughnasadh originates from the Celtic god Lugh (also known as Lugus), whose name  means “bright and shining one.” Legend has it that the holiday was a recognition  of the games and ceremonies that Lugh began in homage to his deceased mother,  Tailtiu. These ceremonial games took place in Ireland, Britain, and other  countries in Europe. Many Pagan worshippers around the world today still play  games in celebration of the holiday.”
