Back on my feet and baking
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'll admit it, between a two week school break and getting a bug I hadn't baked for a while -- and I missed by own bread. Is it OK to say that? :-)

This is 40% KA GP and 60% whole wheat with 20% whole rye. It's a little underproofed and undersprung, but I guess that's OK. Ahhhh.

Looks like you did pretty good for a "rusty" baker!

Your oven spring looks pretty good for the high whole wheat and rye content. Did you use sourdough or commercial yeast?

Be well!

Thanks Jay,
For now, I am doing all of my hearth bread with the sourdough I got from CJ. I'm only using yeast for pizza dough and focaccia. The weather is getting better, and I'm thinking of doing more videos.

More videos would be GREAT!!

Lets see some of the P70 in action.

The list is pretty long:

1. Ciabatta with poolish dough
2. Pizza dough
3. Sourdough whole wheat bread
4. Tuscan grilling
5. Coq a vin al forno
6. Focaccia dough and baking

More?

Hi James!

You are on the same "program" I am. Sourdough for all bread and yeast for pizza and foccacio (though I do occasionaly cross both bounds). After I return from defending my dissertation in April, our local top pizza place, Dough, and I are going to be experimenting together on sourdough pizza. Should be fun.

The videos sound good! Keep'em coming!

That's an interesting thought. I wonder how many people make sourdough pizza. I'm going to post something.

Good luck with your defense Jay.

Thank you!

It is truly intimidating to be a 60+year old doctoral candidate. Cramming all this stuff in my head is PAINFUL! But...rewarding in some form, I guess.

When it is over I will hopefully not have the vertical leap or float time but I will have the name... Dr. Jay :o)
