seasoning some linen

seasoning some linen

I got some linen canvas from SF Baking institute to use as a couche.  I wanted to hasten the seasoning process so I washed it and then while it was still moist I coated it liberally with flour, folded it in half and ironed it (from the backside :-).  It works great. 



PS  I also ordered one of their square stainless dough scrapers and I cannot recommend it.  It's like Barbie's Dream Scraper or something - tiny and expensive.  A disappointment.  I'm happy with the linen, though.
