Light Rye Sourdough with Goji Berry and Pine Nuts - full of good stuff
Sending this to Yeastspotting .
Often used in Chinese cooking, Goji berries are known to have all kinds of health benefits. I often have dried Goji berries on hand to make soup, congee, or even tea with.They are good for me and pretty looking, but don't really have any strong taste, so I combined them with pine nuts in this loaf to jazz up the flavor.
