Name of Food or Beverage

Waybread (Yolk-Bread, Wayfarer’s Bread, Travelbread)
 
Overview

Waybread is a type of flatbread, sometimes made with eggs, usually made by soldiering companies on the roads throughout Santharia. The recipe is quite simple, though varies from province to province, and even between continents. The most common is a type of light, airy flat bread, cooked on whatever is handy, be it rock or camp stove.



Description

Many a soldier has subsisted for weeks on little but iron rations and waybread, with the daily dip into their water supplies. Because waybread keeps so well, it can be carried for long distances. The variations on waybread are numerous. The Eyelians, due to their animal companions, have been known to use eggs in the waybread, giving it a distinct yellow colouration (-). The Centoraurians make a particular form of the bread using spices to season it, such as rosemint and basiloc. Because of the unfortunate problems such as? with carrying yeast over long distances in various climates, the bread cannot be baked with yeast and is made flat.


Usages/Effects
Waybread can be eaten at any time during the day, and is typically prepared at noon. The bread is eaten for the noon meal and whatever is left over may be eaten while traveling. A second batch is roasted or baked, pick one. in the embers of the fire that night, and may be eaten then or preserved for eating in the morning.
 

Origin of the Food or Beverage

Deep in the nomadic past of the Centoraurians is said to originate the waybread. With such a mobile culture it is very difficult to carry yeast or cultivate wheat. The simplest thing to do is trade for the flour required and make flat bread. The bread is quite simple to make and does well for large group as it can be made quickly without an oven or a fire depending on the time of day. The bread was usually eaten in the morning when camp is being broken so the men have something to keep their strength up during the day aside from water.

Method of Preparation

 Waybread is simple flour and water. The flour and water are mixed to form dough. The dough can be baked on whatever available hot surface, be it a flat rock, or a makeshift oven, or even a shield, should the sun be kind, or unkind as it were; this method does however take longer. The waybread is left to bake, either in the sun or over a flame for about 20 minutes as said by aurora the sun will take more time than that. After this point the bread may be eaten immediately. Spices may be added to the dough during the mixing process, rosemint and basiloc are quite common, many add cheese on the bread by way of flavoring.


Importance

Waybread is a widespread and incredibly diverse food. It is a staple of any traveling company’s diet due to its ease of production and relative durability as a food. It is believed that many cultures have at one time developed their own version of waybread independently of each other. Variations exist from the Santharian hinterlands to Nybelmar.

general question; how long exactly can it be carried about before turning stale?

@Mira/Art. Still trying to figure out the shelf life... Rather difficult.

Maybe the longer it is cooked/ the harder it is, makes the shelf life longer?  The harder it is, the more resistant to moisture it is - longer shelf life?

Just a thought....

general bread has a shelf life of about five days before you can notice the quality deteriorating.. flatbread is much more durable though..

Sounds good.

@Hylphan: The less moisture in the bread the longer it will keep if preserved at the correct temperatures (ie. Flatbread.) Waybread is thick flatbread, so it's probably going to be rather moist compared to tortilla.

If there would be changes to things I had pointed out, I could actually check it - but as it is, the entry looks pretty much the same as weeks before, even the "cenotaurians" are untouched. And no changes marked. So what's there to check, Niccoli?
