Thanks Chris,

That was very insightful, and inspirational! 15kg of dough and only 20gr of salt. I always viewed my bread as rustic by its appearance and if it looks like that I would have called it a failure, we do gilt the lily. Her bread was the staff of life and her effort was from the love of family, past, present and future. I truly hope that its passed on.

Yep.. And you don't get to drink any water till you're done with the mixing and kneeding!

I love the shaping process, and although I know the narrator says 20g of salt, if I'm not mistaken it looks more like a handful into the trough..

Pretty enlightening to consider that they still harvest grain by hand and separate the grain from the stalks, by horse.. Slow food and real bread.. It doesn't get more real..

Chris

PS It's interesting that the starter is kept in the fridge until a week later and I'll look, but I think, I'd bet, that all of that starter is mixed into the next batch where again a like sized portion is reserved for the next batch.. And so on!

Hi Les,

For every processed food you eat there is an USDA approved minimun acceptable amount of rodent hair and fecal material level. And you know that we don't want "gov'ment interfearning with our bisness"! So keep them inspectors, OUT!

Simple and easy seems best. Out with the new and in with the old.
