Lessons learned I hop
So I tried to do the Norwich Sourdough this weekend. I missed one important step. After forming the balls I was supposed to let raise before putting in the fridge. After 4 hours I took one of the 2 loafs out of the fridge and tried to let it raise. It grew some. So I decided to throw it into the oven. I had to over bake the top to get the middle to cook. I now have a nice burned loaf. So for the second loaf I took it out of the fridge. I am planning on doing an hourly stretch and fold until the dough is warm and then let it sit for an hour to make sure the dough is not cold.
THe good news this weekend is I made Alton Brown's pretzels and they where really good. There are only 2 left. The issue is storage. I tried a zip lock and its too moist. How do you store items like this?
