Texas Pepper Jelly is awesome on sandwiches and toast, but sandwiches and toast require bread. My family loves homemade bread, so I learned to make it.
I don’t use a bread machine, no, no, no. I make genuine homemade bread. I figure, if my fingernails aren’t spotlessly clean after I’m finished kneading that dough by hand, I’m not really finished kneading.
Once you remove your bread from the oven, however, it has to be sliced before you can really start slathering the pepper jelly on it. I’ve experimented with a lot of knives in my day – I’m kind of oldish so I’ve had a lot of days – and the knife I like best is the Messermeister 10-inch Kullenschliff slicer.
It’s a beautiful knife, all-round. Sharp as a razor. Easy to handle, too.
With some knives, cutting homemade bread is a big deal, and the slices are seldom smooth. The Messermeister Kullenschliff slicer, however, will give you a lovely clean slice every single time.
Remember, too, bread-bakers, that you really must let your bread cool completely before you try to slice it.
And now that your bread is sliced – thanks to your awesome Messermeister Kullenschliff slicer – you can start spreading that mouth-watering delicious Texas Pepper Jelly on it.
Mmmm, pepper jelly.
P.S. It’s June: the wedding month. Why not give the newlyweds some Messermeister cutlery? It lasts practically forever, and everyone needs good kitchen knives.
