A recipe for eucharistic enleavened breadOctober 20, 2016
Bread considered suitable for the Eucharist varies with Christian denomination. Roman Catholic bread must contain only pure flour and water. Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic denominations use only leavened bread to represent the risen Christ. Nonconformist and Lutheran churches sometimes allow the addition of salt, oil and honey. Within the Anglican Communion, although depending upon the view of the president of the Eucharist, any pure bread may be considered suitable. The recipe offered here should be suitable for any denomination except Orthodox. If permitted, and wished, a pinch of salt, a teaspoon of olive oil and half a teaspoon.
