I was Going to show you a 100% rye bread but it didn’t seem to turn out right or that’s what i thought. So i made a different bread. This is a recipe of my own making. This recipes is great but still needs a few adjustments.

-Mix flour and water till combined and let it sit covered for 20-30 minutes.

– Then combine every thing except the soaker and knead with mixer for 6 minutes or by hand for 10 minutes till medium gluten is formed. it will be sticky so if you doing it by hand you will have to use the french fold style.  towards the end mixing add in the soaker til combined with the dough about a 1 minute of mixing.

light rye walnut and flax sourdough

Leave a comment

Nothing to exciting this post there are a lot of crazy thing going on around my home but i managed to throw a sourdough together. I even mixed it with the mixer not something i normally do not do for sourdough bread. Normal procedure preferment night before. Then put the bread together, retard over night bake the next day. The only one i cut open was the bread loaf shape one tasted great but is had small holes in the crumb , might have happened because i put it in a small loaf pan. The other two hopefully had better crumb, but i could have just throw the bread in the over to early i had to get it done. I got part of the recipe from bourrke street bakery and altered it to light rye with walnuts and flax.








I ordered to big bags of whole rye and white hard winter wheat  berries from a local grain store. i like helping out the little places. I plan to make some 100 % rye bread and other breads with freshly ground flours……still waiting for my order to get here.

Pumpkin sourdough

Leave a comment

Thought i would try a recipe from Discovering Sourdough. If you have the e-book that’s for sale on amazon you can find it on the part 3 advanced sourdough. Im not posting a Recipe tonight but ill put up a few pictures. haha it was hard to score this bread the pumpkin seed kind of got in the way.

I got a big bag of general mills harvest king flour from general mills flour and i used it for this recipe and others. It’s a good bread flour and is unbleached. Works just as well as king Arthur.

Sourdough Pizza

Leave a comment

Im not a huge fan of pizza but though i would make a recipe and post it. I made veggie, ham/pineapple and a black olive/peperoni . This is a very simple recipe anyone could do it considering you have starter on hand. I just use the left over starter from my feedings. Also sorry for the bad quality pictures i didn’t realize someone change the setting on the camera.

Recipe  2 pizzas

200 g whole wheat flour

255 g bread flour or high gluten flour if you have it

295 g water

13 g salt

3/4 tsp yest

105 grams sourdough starter

12 grams olive oil

So This is easy. Just mix all ingredients for about 20 minutes in your mixer. if you don’t have a mixer it’s going to take 30 to 40 minutes of kneading. then put the dough in a bowl in the refrigerator over night give that starter a chance to do its work. The next day take out to warm up and make sure to heat up your stone before cooking no steam is required for this.

I got a few samples for flour from…. well as local as it gets for me in Lancaster Pennsylvania. i have to say im impressed. not just because it’s organic,  not bleached, bromated or enriched.  The flavor of the bread come out like it was just milled fresh. Thank you daiasy organic flours for the chance to try your flour. i will defiantly buy more later. i made a few sourdough breads with it a 50/50 whole wheat county style loaf, and a batch of skinny baguettes. they both turned  out well.

desem Bread

Leave a comment

Ive been working on a sort of desem starter for a bit witch is kind of an old way to make a starter. It’s a really  thick starter that you keep in a cold place and it last much longer than regular starter.  What i did is took my extra starter and add alot of flour till it was think and put it in the refrigerator. then i keep doing that for a few weeks seem to work well. but it might now be the traditional way haha. Im not going to post a recipe since it now mine but i will put a link to where i got it. I used freshly ground flour so that made a Difference.  Here’s the post i used for the recipe There’s a better explanation of desem and the recipe  http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/27999/honest-bread-100-wholewheat-desem-bread-and-some-country-bread
