 NOTES : I make an egg wash of 1 egg white and 1 tablespoon of water.  I brush
 the rolls before baking and half way through again. This gives a lovely
 crusty texture. Barley Malt syrup is a must. Any GNC nutrition center or
 health food store stocks it or can get it. I use this in place of 1
 tablespoon of water in ALL bread machine recipes. It extends a rich unique
 bready flavor.
 I make lots of French, Italian breads and Kaisers. I found a bakers Lame in
 Williams-Sonoma  ( catalog only). It is a very thin sharp blade with a slip
 case that scores bread and will not deflate the loaf or drag like a knife.
