This weekend I made bagels, pain au raisin, cream cheese snails, and pain poolish.
Bagels and snails were pretty easy. I'll post the snails recipe soon. The bagel recipe is here .
We ate one of the two pain poolish loaves last night. It was excellent. It'll be interesting to compare the other one to it tonight: I was pretty rough shaping the one we ate last night. It came out a beautiful dark brown. The other loaf I did not work as hard while shaping. It came out pretty pale. I suspect that that one may have been a little "over the hill" and would have benefited from being worked harder.
Once I get the pain poolish down I will post a recipe too.
