12 Grain Italian

 I used K.A. Organic 12 - Grain Flour Blend...Wheat, Amaranth, Quinoa, Sorghum, Brown Rice, Spelt, Barley, Millet, Oats, Rye, Buckweat, Corn.  to replace some..about a cup of the bread flour in P.R. Italian Bread recipe with a Biga...  I thought it's time to start sweeping out some of the Holiday feasting and this would be a beginning!  The bread tastes delicious..it has a sweet toasty flavor.

Thank you, Paul, Wiscarver and Betty.  Betty, I'm hoping they offer more free shipping!

That looks scrumptuous. Alternatively, you could buy a little of each of those flours from the bulk bins at your local food co-op or Whole Foods. That way you could avoid paying for shipping and experiment with proportions.

I would love to find so much variety and organic and sure would be a lot cheaper...I did get a pretty nice special on the batch I ordered...it would just be nice to find more locally!

I think one of the best joys of the holidays is the baking!  The biggest part of my baking wasn't posted...it was on the fast delivery list!!  Have a Blessed New Year!    Sylvia

Those are beautiful.  Did you bake those during all the rain?  I'm in LA ( You're in San Diego- right?) and it had been pouring, sometimes my breads act up on rainy days.

 Thank you Marni....I think it might have rained the day I baked these but I really can't remember...but I love to bake bread when it's raining!  I guess you had your share of the rain too!  It has been a long dry spell so it was welcome here!

...You're doing great with these pics.
Might I suggest an additional foto of the loafs as they enter the oven?
Next time.
  Happy New Year
