Photo:Sourdough Boules/Chili con Carne

I made 4 Sourdough Boules today and totally messed up the recipe '


'big time' making the first two large ones in the back of the photos...the ones with the nice cracks.  They sang loud and clear!  I rescued them by just going pretty much on the feel of the dough and cheated with a little added yeast... My husband said that they were his favorite kind of bread to eat!!  Go figure!!  Well they did have a very crunchy crackly crust and a very tender light crumb...the flavor was very mild sourdough flavor with the nice flavor plus from the new 12 grain flour KA mixture I been using for a little extra fiber and flavor.  They went nice with the chili con carne made with small red beans I soaked the nite before...I got a new camera for Christmas and wanted to try out these photos...hey I did pretty good...but I think I still better read the instructions!!  Just not enough hours in the day!

Thank you for the nice compliment.  My grandsons love my chili...as long as I don't put in too many beans!!

the formula you used?


that looks like a really nice bread. I've not tried a sourdough yet. I'd like to next week maybe. I just baked my 3rd batch of Jeffrey Hammelmans French Baguettes yesterday. They came out good though my poolish overripened a bit - my first try using a heating pad in the oven for fermenting instead of keeping the house at 70 degrees all night! :)


 


thanks!

This is a great formula and you can find it right here...It's Susan's Magic Bowl Sourdough....As for the two large boule's in the back of the photo...it's the same formula I totally messed up and did not write down what I did...other than I had to add more flour, water and I did add a little yeast in these two boules!  You'll find Susan's Formula on her Blog.


Hope you can post some photo's of your breads!
