Checa con Anís

Checa con Anís

The bread illustrated above is called checa con anís. True to its name, its lightly flavored with anise seeds.

Checa con anís is a unsweetened white bread. The outside is lightly floured. The crust is delicate with a little tooth. The bread as a whole tears with enough gluten development for an elastic body  but not enough to turn it hard or tough. They stay fresh and springy for a fair amount of time.

Tear off the little nib above, and the thing turns into a bun.

This and other breads are available for purchase at near the main market of San Pedro on Lake Atitlán in Guatemala.
