Sometimes it's fun to take pretty pictures, but too laborious to have to write up a recipe, so if that's the case, post your pictures here. Grab your cameras, friends, and show us what's happening in your kitchens !
Nice SD loaf. YOu asked the other day in chat if I use sourdough. I bake sourdough using a 6 year old starter from KArthur. My loaves are standard 5 cup long loaves using just that starter, hi gluten bread flour, water and kosher salt. In the winter if the rooms are all chilled I will sometimes use malt to help the rise. I feed the starter once a day for 3 days prior to making a biga with 2 cups of flour and 1 cup of starter the day before I bake. I keep the leftover starter in refer and it lasts forever provided I use it once in awhile and I do because we eat bread often. The rise is long and slow but not overnight, yet. I plan to start that type of rise once we get the new appliances due this week. I have been baking bread for a very long time and refuse to purchase bakery products unless we are away from home. Robin bakes the sweet side in the kitchen and my favs are biscotti, mollasses rum cookies and anything she bakes that contains chocolate. If the cutting board had a chocolate center, I would eat it.
Saw your web site. Very nice and good pics. Keep the camera busy, we need more pics here. I just finished both my sites which needed revisions. I will add the address here:
See you again in chat soon.
