Randy, I thought of something that you probably already know.  I don't think I've made soda bread, but making other kinds that are sticky, I've found that wetting my hands with oil helps.

Thanks all. When I washed my hands, I noticed the dough came off rather easily. I'll pre-moisten them next time. I do have dried cranberries, but I didn't add any. Again, next time. Patricia once said "never refrigerate bread". Even soda bread? No preservatives in it.

Rany, I know what you mean about soda bread. The way I do it is run my hands under the warm water faucet and then start the kneading process for three or four times, but no more. Just enough to get the lump of ingredients together.

Randy, no suggestions on the stickiness. Nature of the beast, as it were. However, I hope you used currants and not raisins. Irish myself here, and I like the original :-)

Made Irish soda bread yesterday. It's delicious, but a mess to prepare. Any suggestions on how to knead it without it sticking to your hands? It was like glue!

Nice going, Randy! I'm attempting to drop a few pounds myself, but the spirit isn't willing and the flesh is weak.

I did it! Except for one "kiss", I went the whole day without sugar! I subsituted apple sauce for brown sugar on my Delicata squash, and it tasted fine. My yogurt had sugar in it, but that was about it. I'm going to try to alternate my days - sugarless on odd. Am I strong enough?

That entire area will grow anything; maybe they should try growing cacao, too.

I like that we nake conscious choices about what we buy and eat. Nobody is going to be perfect, but I think these choices do have an effect.

I wish we coukd grow our own chocolate. But it's totalky tropical. Like coffee.

I think Aztecs regarded cacao seeds as a gift from the god Quetzalcoatl. I cant link from my tablet - it's in wikipedia. They made a frothy drink but did not have milk or sugar in Aztec Mexico.

I love the combination of chocolate with hot peppers.
