request help on adding soakers to recipe
Somewhere on this site when I first started looking there was a photo of the most wonderful multi-grain bread. I can't find it and I didn't think to save it at the time.
Can soakers be used in any recipe? What is the procedure and what exactly do I buy in order to do it?
My every week bread is a standard one consisting of
3-1/2 c bread flour
1/2 c wheat flour
1-1/2 tsp salt
2 cups water
Mix together, sit for 18 hours, fold a little (I'm still working on that part) shape, let rise and bake in cast iron dutch oven, first with lid on and then lid off. It's a great bread, but I'd like to add some whole grains to it. I"m just not sure of the technique.
I do have 2 starters to choose from. One 100% hydration and one about 70% if I need to go that route.
thanks for any and all help
