Made a couple small loaves with fresh Oregano and one Za for lunch. I also included some dinner shots for fun.

Pizza Night with the wife. Sourdough with Sausage, Roasted Onions, and Mozz. Finished off with the green pepper sauce.

Decided to proof a little longer to see if there was a difference in crumb and taste.

As soon as it cools I will slice and taste. It is slightly darker on the outside which I like but I don't know if my sainted wife will.

P.S.

Good Flavor with a much nuttier finish with the longer proof, it has 30% White Whole Wheat flour in the mix.

The wife wanted a EM with a looser crumb than the Whole Wheat ones I make. So, I made a strait white flour sourdough and proofed it overnight. In the morning I put the tray on the counter and let it warm up and rise just a bit more. I was lazy and did not make some clarrified butter (gee) so they are little scorched in spots, not bad though. I fork split them after they cooled. Ready for butter and jam in the morning.

Just thought with all my experimenting I would make a basic Sourdough loaf just so I would not forget what brought me down this road.

Enjoy the coming spring everyone!

I was messing around with Semolina Flour and tried to make a couple loaves. One is plain with Sesame Seeds on top, the other is with Lavender and Oat Bran on top. Next time I think I will make the dough a bit stiffer, it was quite slack.
