If you work with wet doughs, read this for a "handy" tip.
For those of you who have adopted the stretch and fold in the bowl technique, I wanted to share a handy (pun intended) trick. I discovered it yesterday when I needed to take my tub of just mixed dough with me to a meeting so I could do some S&Fs during the first proof. Given the constraints (lack of sink, etc), i decided to bring along some nitrile gloves that I could slip on and off for the S&Fs.
Wow! Using the glove was great! It allowed me to get a good grip on the dough and there was was no dough sticking to the glove. No added water (from dipping hand in water to prevent sticking). No need to remove my rings or wash my hands afterward . I was able to reuse the same glove for all S&Fs. I will be employing this hand-in- glove technique, at home or away, from now on.
