What is the correct grammatical usage of the word "autolyse"?
I simply have no context for this word. It only came into my vocabulary a couple of months ago when I found this site. As such, the usage has me stumped.
For instance, this sentence makes sense: The recipe uses the autolyse method.
However, take out the word "method" and the sentence falls apart.
Neither "an autolyse" or simply "autolyse" sound correct.
Using it as a verb is even trickier: ... let the dough autolyse for 20 minutes.
What is the correct usage?
