Last week I made the 4th of July challah.
It’s all right, but a bit messy. I would like to get better at stripes. So I decided to refine the technique.
Last week I had used small bowls to dye the stripes. They were messy and awkward. So this week I sued plates with the dye.
And let the stripes dry a bit once dyed.
Then, wiping my hands between stripes, I placed them in the baking dish.
This design is inspired by my love of open water swimming.
The final product ended up a lot cleaner looking:
So clearly this technique is a step in the right direction.
