Triple Grain sourdough

Leave a comment

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.

78 g wheat bran

60 g corn meal

20 g flax seed

140 g Boiling water

328 grams freshly ground hard white wheat

44 g corn meal

504 g water

18 g salt

36 grams molasses

260 grams %100 hydrated sourdough starter

-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.

– Put in oiled container in a warm spot for 2 hours with stretch and fold at 30, 60 and 90.

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.

Im not going to post a recipe since its my secret recipe but ill post some pictures. Also made a few croissants but i change the recipe and measured wrong but they will still taste the same.









farmers market/kitchen licensed

Leave a comment

I have one more thing to add for today, Ive hit a speed bump in getting my license for my  home kitchen. One thing we have a dog and apparently you can have any pet’s in your house you want to get a a license to sale my breads at a farmers markets. Also are water comes for a well and is tainted and you have to have clean water. The water i use is boiled, filtered and put through UV lights. sometimes i buy it. So i have to call the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture to see if i can pass with just using bought water for now and about the dog. I could have just read the wrong thing so i want to make sure. Other alternative would be to find somewhere else to do it or just open my own bakery.

This was one of my creations, more of a utilization bread. i had a bunch of mother dough that needed to be used. i kind of just measured every thing by eye turned out well. there is no recipe just made it like you would with any other well except a preferment didn’t have to because of the mother dough. so i just did mix,bulk ferment with s&f, rise and bake.
