Leader's Polish Cottage Rye
Yesterday, I baked the Polish Cottage Rye from Daniel Leader's "Local Breads." It is, as described, a very wet dough. Forming the boule was more like folding and pinching seams than my usual rotating and tucking procedure. In any case, the resulting bread was pretty. It was delicious 3 hours out of the oven - very moist and tender with distinct sweet and sour overtones. This morning, toasted with butter and apple butter, the rye flavor was more prominant.
