I think I goofed up
My wife and a couple of her friends are on the way to West Virginia to pick up some retired rescue Greyhounds. They've done this several times and have developed a friendship with the helpful kennel owner. I was asked to make and freeze some lasagna and baguettes to give to him as a thank you. No problem with the lasagna. The bread may be another issue, however.
I made three baguettes and after letting them cool, I wrapped them separately in plastic cling wrap. Then I slipped all three into a vacuum bag and started evacuating the air. The machine did it's thing and all looked good until I noticed the loaves were starting to collapse. At that point, I turned the machine off and sealed the bag and put them in the freezer.
Now I wonder what that did to the crumb. Maybe it collapsed it into a solid mess. Problem is I'll never know because the guy receiving food won't complain or maybe he'll just think it's bad bread. Any thoughts? I guess the only way I'll know how it turned out is to make more bread and repeat the process and see for myself.
