Glossary contributions, anyone?
Here's a thought that might be helpful to us greenhorns, and perhaps give a bit of a hand to our beloved friend, the incredibly hardworking Floyd:
I keep coming across terms I need to hunt down on the web, so I'm thinking those of you with much more experience than I might be willing to contribute some simple, one-graf definitions of some of the words we come across on this site. I know that expanding the glossary (run a search to find it fast) is on Floyd's ever-expanding to-do list, so maybe our (or should I say 'your') combined efforts might save him some labor.
Here are the terms that are in the glossary now:
autolyse. BBA (The Bread Baker's Apprentice ). crumb. folding. gluten. poolish. sponge (aka preferment).
Here are a few other words I did not recognize when I first encountered them: desem. levain. biga. spelt.
I'll bet there are others with words they can suggest for glossarizing (is that a word?)
