my first bread - Barnyard Rye
Might just be beginners luck. What a success.
I think i get storm anxiety, so last week, with a snow storm advancing, i spent the day cooking. A beef stew, ground some grains for crackers, and sent a pic to Mr Sleeve of a rich multi-grain pullman loaf hopping he would study it and make it during the storm day together...between shoveling.
He made it to work fine, so i made it using a few recipes i found. Made a sponge, soaked a couple cups of mixed grains, and made bread. Three loaves. One a pullman, one in a clay thing, and a flat disc Finnish style. I expected some doorstops but it has good soft moist crumb yet holds up to a slice of goat cheese or a gorgonzola, with a slice of prosciutto or smoked salmon...just what i was looking for.
Now i need to write down what i did. DH is requesting the recipe...
I didn't even know i had a pullman loaf pan until i started researching. I had no idea what that thing was. (the sides fold down). Now i really want a 4x4x18 inch that has a sliding lid.
