On a parish website I found a funky recipe for communion bread, as follows:
3 cups whole wheat flour
3 cups unbleached white bread flour
21 ounces or 2 and 2/3 cups carbonated non-flavored spring water (Perrier)
1/8 teaspoon salt
My feeling is that this is valid matter but illicit due to the salt. The carbonated water also seems extremely strange to me, but I do not think it invalidates it. Am I correct? This parish is known for “funky” things.
I read the instructions following the recipe and I found this, which horrified me:
“Brush Crisco lightly over each loaf…”
