crazy over Yuko's red wine sourdough

this bread is so tasty i had to bake a couple more to share with more friends

this is another version of red wine(Chateau Cap De Faugeres) cranberry sourdough using yeast water and osmanthus flower...

a big handful too

my first attempt on a batard shape!!

i baked for my girlfriends so i added the osmanthus flower tea, cos osmanthus blooms are very delicate and the aroma from the blossoms is equally delicate resulting in mild peach flavor notes. It is said that osmanthus flower tea promotes beautiful skin.

round ends

sharp ends.. not quite there yet 

a pretty looking slice. pink with golden yellow specks :) 

thanks Yuko for a wonderful idea.

Very nice baking all the way around.  I'm not sure batard's are supposed to have the trendy points  but they are fun to practice :-)

Happy baking
