BREAD without machine:

> Here it is!
> Dissolve the 1 T honey and 1 T brown sugar in 1/2 c warm water (can also 
> use 1 c and skip the V8).  Add the yeast and wait a couple of minutes 
> until it bubbles (about 1/2 packet of dry yeast).  Mix in the V8 (if

> of salt.  Also add the dry milk here (I skipped this ingredient).  
> Throw in the peppers at this point and make sure it's mixed well.
> I don't have any red savinas, so I ground about 10 cayennes.  
> Overall very nice but not deadly burn.
> Knead this about 5-6 minutes and let rise until doubled in a greased
