This batch of dough won't double. I've let it sit all day and it just stays the same. Perhaps I should through it in trash and try again.
I volunteer to "NEED" it for a while ....
I will take that useless dough from you. Just hand it over! :-)
and the right plates. I'd go for low hydration and that beautiful bowl!
Funny thing how money got the slang of dough or bread I wonder how that got started.
I love the dough bowl as well, a guy not so far a way from me in North Carolina made that one. This is a link to his site http://www.doughbowlmaker.com
I just thought it would make a cute picture so I thought I would share and give someone a little chuckle.
It is my understanding that centuries ago, in Merry Olde Englande, meat was used as an item of barter.
Doe meat could be used... therefore... doe > dough.
In more recent times, the word "dough" came to be used as a monetary term in exchange for "bread."
"Eh, mon -- ya got any bread?"
But don't bet the farm on my correctitude. :)
...took the money thing further. They traded deerskins as money. Hence, we still have "bucks." [buckskins]
So -- they got to... erm... eat their meat and have it, too [since they traded the skins].
