Raisin, Cranberry, Currant Bread with Caraway Seeds

Hey All,


Just wanted to share with you some more pictures.  This is my Raisin, Cranberry, Currant Caraway Seed Bread.  For this recipe, I used 70% hydration.  The crumb is denser and drier than the Sweet Potato Pugliese Bread I had made yesterday.  I think next time, I will try 75%-80% hydration.  I'll post a recipe when I figure out the hydration levels...  Overall, the flavor is what I had expected.  Yummy!

Thanks!  This is my 3rd time baking this type of bread.  I had done another attempt during thanksgiving that was stellar, with a more open crumb structure.  That one, I used a pate' fermentee' pre-ferment...  This one, I just made a straight dough...  I think I'll go back to using a pre-ferment next time...  But this one still tastes good...
