Adding chopped olives

August 24, 2008 - 12:04pm -- Felila

I decided to try making some Kalamata olive bread. I bought some barley flour (I vaguely remembered that the bread I used to buy had some barley flour in it) and some pitted Kalamata olives.

I used Floyd's Pain Sur Poolish recipe. Made a poolish with KA white whole wheat and water, the next morning added 4 cups of flour (mixture of barley, www, and white bread flour, light on the barley) and a cup of liquid (some olive oil, rest water). Started kneading it in the Kitchenaid. It was kneading up beautifully. Clung to the hook, formed a blob, but not dry.
