Question Re Flouring New Brotform
I have just been given four lovely brotfom baskets as a birthday present and am really looking forward to using them for today's baking! (1,2,3 sourdough, one of which will be rosemary with olive oil.)
I searched the site to make sure I'm doing things right and so last night I gave them a quick rinse in HOT water and dried them immediately in a 200F oven. Now I am trying to coat them in rice flour (I have been using rice flour to coat linen/cotton tea towel lined baskets for a couple of years now - works perfectly.) but try as I might, the flour keeps falling out of the ridges. I have finally floured one fairly well, but any little tap knocks the flour out again. I do not plan to grease/spray/oil these baskets. They are willow or rattan or something like that.
I've searched the 'net for pictures of properly floured brotform baskets, but nothing comes up. If anyone with more experience has a photo to share, I'd be grateful.
Also any tips I might have missed would be appreciated.
