Well, I started making bread yesterday afternoon and finished baking thse off this morning. After nursing my sick starter back to health, I was able to get two almost decent loaves from nothing more than starter, flour, water and salt. That was my goal. Now I have to work on refinining the outcome. My slashing technique needs work and I am not happy with the uneven browning. I baked them in a gas oven at 425 degrees on a baking stone which was preheated for 45 minutes. I misted the oven with water 3 times in the first 15 minutes and baked for a total of 30 minutes. I am not sure why they did not brown evenly. Any ideas? I also need to work on my photography skills.
