Recent member with "pantry" questions
I found the group a while back searching for information on repairing my 40's vintage Hobart N50.
While the mixer is still spread all over the workbench, waiting for cooler weather to work on it I immersed myself into the site and started making bread again. And bread that is much prettier and interesting than most of my previous efforts. I have a steady stream of requests for loaves of my Caraway/Pumpernickel and Italian Crusty breads, so I must be doing something right.
I have revisited some old favorites from growing up and have gotten exceptional results now that I am using a large stone in the oven that I got from California Pizza Stones. It's almost 3/4" thick and cut to fit the interior of the oven. I work on parchment paper and put it all in the oven on the stone with a peel.
OK, finally to the question...
I am continually running into ingredients I don't normally have in the pantry, the most recent of which is Malt Powder, I do have Malt Syrup however ;o). Initially it was Powdered Milk I had to run out and get at the last moment.
Is there a "list" somewhere of a basic pantry items for bread making as I find on this site?
I am having fun, but the last minute scavenger hunts a re a bit annoying.
