I have been makeing bread off and on for several years now. I have the best luck with a basic white loaf made in a boule shape. Last week I bought a delicious loaf of mulitgrain bread at the farmers market in town. It made me want to try baking in a loaf pan and also making a multigrain. The result was pretty good. I mixed white and whole wheat flours, added some flax seeds, sunflower seeds, quinoa, steel cut and rolled oats. I wanted to add some millet but we didn't have any on hand.
It wasn't overly dense like some of my failed attempts with a pure whole wheat loaf. I would have liked for it to have been a bit taller. I'll be making another loaf over the weekend so there's always the next time.
I am firing the salt kiln this weekend along w. 4 other folks who are paying for experience. I made a few porcelain pots yesterday to include if there is room.
I'd never thrown porcelain before so it was a first. I liked it. I really like that it's white and clean and not brown and muddy! Ha. I figure if I ever go over to this sort of thing I want to make thin lipped, sort of off center pots that are all white, no color. You can see what I tried in the pic there. We'll see how they look after a coating of salt glaze.
Well that's all for now. I'll put some info about some upcoming exhibitions later. Thanks for checking in.
