My thanksgiving sourdough loaves

Hey guys sorry it's been forever

Been busy with work and what not

 

I got the chance to fly home for thanksgiving so I quickly revived my starter and baked up a couple loaves!

 

Here is how they came out

thanks guys

 

i want to branch out and try some new bread styles next, but I don't really know waht to try.


I'm thinking about trying croissants.. Do you bake those in a sealed apparatus also, like a dutch oven? or smaller individual ones?

I think just on a sheet pan, typically.

I just shared a few good links about making croissants that I'll share again here.

Haha, I literally have two of those open -  the  Tx vs Tx  and the  sourdough starter articles, and then i had to open the poolish croissants thread for the procedure as well.  I just , well, I feel like something would benefit those first few minutes in the oven, like steaming..  I will have to experiemnt.  If I can't get a good croissant similar to how my baguette never turns out nice because of ths team... i'll have to just buy a steam oven then.
