Some of the bakes from a cookout today

Spelt and Einkorn batards, and cinnamon raisin red fife boule. Also did 3 baguettes and 7 pizzas.

 They all look great! Interesting that I am also in the middle of a red fife cinnamon raisin batch as well.

I was really happy the way the red fife cinnamon turned out. It was about 50% freshly milled red fife. I had never tried to make a cinnamon or raisin sourdough loaf before.

Mine is only 30% freshly milled Red Fife. Using cinnamon in bread can be tricky because cinnamon can impede the growth of yeast. Looks like you hit the right balance!

...and I just love the fern score.  Poetic.

I might try a one sided fern. Would be good for today's Pentecost Potluck Picnick (at Poinsett Park.)
