New As Well. My first loaf.KJF. Hard Red. :-( Fully baked but BLAA...

Well,


I just processed my first loaf o' bread.  I've never done this before.  I went to my local grocer and the bag of KJF stood out as being natual, rustic etc...  After my purchase I realized that I bought hard red KJF.  Not so bad as i've enjoyed 100% wheat before but I whish I bought soft or hard white.  Oh well.  I will just top it with PB and J to mask the flavor...  or my first jar of chocolate crack (i mean "Nutella."  Wow!  That stuff is truley not necessary but sooo good. )


I followed KJF's recipe on the bag and the loaf turned out good (solid/airy/cooked...) but...  The taste...


I look forward to the experienced folks in this community sharing their abilities.


I really have no idea.


Well, I shouldn't say that.  I do have some knowedge of the basics (salt, shugar, flour, fire...) but this doesn't come naturally to me.


Thanks in advance.


Clint.
