This recipe came from the Feast Of The Hunters' Moon put on by the Tippecanoe County Historical Association in Lafayette, Indiana the weekend of October 19-20, 2002. Thanks to Leon Dickson and E.J. Pheasant for letting THE WAYNEDALE NEWS sample some of the bread they were baking in an old fashion clay 'beehive' oven. They built a fire in the oven, and baked their bread inside after the fire was pulled out.
