Big box (top): Mushroom and leek omelette on homemade dark bread, carrot and celery sticks, cherry tomato decoration
Small box (bottom): Hummus to dip the veggies into, mini Kitkat bar, pickled beans and onions, carrot flowers.
BF gets the same in his usual box. He also gets some sundried tomatoes, and no beans because he hasn’t started liking the texture yet. But instead his pickled onion makes a pretty rose!
I made my own sourdough bread today! I finally had the time to try out my yeasing form. Don’t you love the spiral?
This is the shape and type of bread I grew up with. It’s How Bread Should Look Like [TM]. (And taste like. Mmm, dark sourdough.)
I’m still filing on the recipe, but the general recipe I started out with is this:
350g sourdough starter made the day before
350g rye flour
400g wheat flour (I used 350g spelt + 50g wheat)
350g lukewarm water
2 tsp salt
1 Tsp oil
1 tsp yeast to help the sourdough along (this is probably a remnant of the recipe that mixed in heavy walnuts, and I’m going to try without next time).
Knead for 5 minutes, let rise for 45 minutes. Knead more, make two dough balls and let rise 2 hours in the yeasing baskets.
Start the oven at 240 degrees but reduce the heat to 180 when putting in the bread. Bake 45 minutes.
I’ll be posting updates as soon as I start to feel confident about my baking!
(Yes mom, I know you’re reading this, and I’m probably Doing It All Wrong :D )
