When I was little, my mom made homemade bread with potato water and I had never forgotten the taste. It was sooooo goooood!!! Since then, my mom has passed but I longed for that bread. After making a few substitutions and alterations, I think I've succeeded in being able to imitate her recipe as close as possible. This recipe calls for less yeast due to the starch content in the potato water that contributes to the rising action. The first time I made this bread, the taste brought me back to the good ol' days!! A good and tasty way to use saved potato water!!! Because this bread browns up darker than most, I would suggest a light crust setting on your machine.
