Put all of liquids into kitchen aid or Bosch bowl with dough hook. And then slowly add flour then add the salt. Mix until dough is soft but not sticky. Put in a greased bowl, knead. Punch down a little turn dough over then let raise until doubled. Turn out of bowl and divide dough into six equal sections, divide each section in to to equal parts and roll into “snakes”. Then follow directions below on how to “weave” or “braid” the dough. After you put them in the loaf pans raise until they double again. Bake for 30-35 minutes @ 350. Take out the bread when hollow sound is made when you “thunk it”, it will also be golden brown.
