 What must you do when you have wonderful fresh apricot jam? Make bread!

 I made the Vermont Maple Oatmeal Bread from King Arthur's Flour. The recipe is here. But the amazing thing I wanted to share was the new way I found for rolling out rolls. It is called THE FLIP! I love it and now find myself wanting to make rolls every day because flipping them is so fun. Watch the how to video. (you have to scroll down a bit to see the video)
