For those casual bakers like myself who have a new sack of half-sheet parchment papers from King Arthur Flour (or any other source with a similar package), I found a place to store my new papers in the pantry without fear of them falling through the slots between the wire shelf units or getting wrinkled or dogeared. I simply used flat head thumbtacks (not push pins) on the inside of the bag to stick them to the wall as shown above. VOILA! Carefree storage.
How would you store bread sticks? I have a glass pasta container. But most of them don't fit. Right now they're on a rack. I'm thinking of putting them in two paper lunch bags at each end. Any suggestions?
I regularly make flatbread, using a bread machine to make the dough, then rolling out flat and throwing onto a hot griddle pan. The breads start to bubble within a few seconds and when cooked (1 - 2 mins) are beautifully soft and puffy.
However, I recently cooked some for a dinner party, and to save time and effort, I rolled out the breads a couple of hours ahead of time, instead of rolling them immediately prior to cooking as I do normally. I stacked them with sheets of grease proof paper between each bread and kept them at room temperature until I needed to cook them.
I am wondering. Once I cracked the code to a nice loaf I do not plan on baking one everyday ;) - I plan to freeze some.
Are there any procautions on freezing SD bread? how will the crust get? (do you have any experiences with that?).
How do you store SD bread on the counter ? paper or plastic?
I just found the site. I haven't done much looking around, yet, but it looks like it'll be a good one. I was wondering how long can rye flour be stored in the refrigerator freezer. The expiration date on the bag is Feb. 10, 2009. The bag is unopened and has been in the freezer the whole time. The brand is Hodgson Mill. Thank you.
Hello, I am totally new to wheat and milling. I have a mill that was given to me last year as a gift...one of the nicer hand crank types.
Today I purchased 2- 25lb bags of Wheat Montana (so excited to see at Walmart!!)...I got one bag of Bronze Chief and one Prairie Gold. I want to go back and get the Red Spring wheat...I regret not picking up one of each.
REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION
An interesting article I ran across and I thought it would be worthwhile to post - if nothing else for consideration of the process of milling in the modern era.
