36 Hour Sourdough Boule

My wife is having a girls weekend in Barcelona with her friends, so the kids and I are drowning our sorrows in dough. This 10% rye boule was made with a combination of techniques from David Snyder's San Joaquin Sourdough and txfarmer's 36 hour baguettes. Crispy, crunchy crust and soft but chewy crumb with medium sour tang. Very satisfying.

What a beautiful loaf of bread!  The scoring, the color of the crust and the crumb.  Wonderful to gaze upon and I imagine wonderful to eat.  Lucky kids having a dad who knows how to bake such a beautiful loaf of bread.  I imagine they have no sorrows to drown :-)

I envy the colouring you get on the exterior of your boule.  So nice.

I need to try this one out soon!  Thanks for the inspiration.

some very fancy do scoring and  that  crunchy brown crust is hiding a beauitfully open crumb.   Bet it is moist and soft yet chewy too.

Nice baking
