Location: Ølstykke, Denmark
My second HelpX-ing stint took place in Ølstykke, a small, lush pocket of Denmark. With fields of yellow rapeseed flowers abound and the nearest supermarket a 20 minute bike-ride away, life was simple. I had free reign in the family’s beautiful and well-equipped kitchen (feat. another awesome garlic crusher), and they even made some delicious brown bread loaves in the morning before leaving for work. Who’s working for who here?
Verdict: Not bad, not bad. The bread was quite dense though, which means the butter didn’t have too much of a buttery effect. Maybe the butter:bread ratio was a bit off. However, the chunky rock salt typically used in Denmark added a nice bit of crunch, and the garlic was crushed to perfection. The grains used in the bread made it taste almost healthy…
