Homemade couche in the tropics
Well, I used my pie rolling out canvas to couche two french loaves, and kept them in my kitchen.They rose wonderfully, but due to high humidity ( I think) when it came time to put them into the oven, I could not remove them from the fabric. I had used liberal amounts of flour, so humidity is the only answer I can come up with.
Today, I am trying the french bread experiment again. Put my starter together last night, and as I write this the bread is at the fermentation stage . Couches may NOT be a possibility here due to climate, unless we get an air conditioner into the kitchen.
I have not had the opportunity of looking for a baking stone yet, but will visit several tile shops when I next have the car and loads of errands to run.
I have taken seeral digital photos, and opened an account at photo bucket, but need to play around with the next stage of photo transfers..whatever that may be.
Be well everyone.
