I don't know about you guys, but last week wore me out. I'm just now recovering and have the energy to recap :)
Here's the last week or so of production. The struan I kept, everything else went on Thursday.
- Sourdough rye rolls using the Old School Deli Rye recipe from ITJB. I milled 1.5 tablespoons of caraway seeds in while milling the flour. IMO, I made them too small and/or cooked too long, they got really hard. They were fine once cut in half, but biting into a whole one was painful.
- Plain sourdough loaves. This was my first time using the Russian whole wheat sourdough strain from sourdo.com. It's a little less sour than the KA New England strain I've been using, but is much more vigorous with 100% home-milled grain.
- Apple Pie. Pretty much straight from Alton's Good Eats recipe, except I use traditional spices.
- PR's multigrain struan via WGB. This has become one of my favorite recipes.
