My Tuesday Twister posts are my weekly round-up of what’s going on in my kitchen and our lives, as it pertains to GNOWFGLINS. We try as much as possible to make use of “God’s natural, organic, whole foods, grown locally and in season.” So here we go – I’ll catch you up on what’s twisting in my kitchen this week!
Sourdough Bread with Hard White Wheat – I’m all about hard white wheat this week! I made an Azure Standard order last month, and added hard white wheat for the first time in a long time. What inspired me was tasting my friend Christina’s yummy bread from it, and then seeing how inexpensive it is compared to the hard red wheat I’ve been buying from another supplier over the past year. Not only am I happy about saving some money, but everyone loves the lighter and softer texture and milder taste of this wheat. When I baked the first loaves of sourdough with it, everyone ate it with kind of wondrous looks on their faces as they said, “Is this sourdough?” You see, it didn’t taste sour (to us), even after 15 to 17 hours of souring. It is funny, though, because I know in a few months if I start using hard red wheat again, everyone will die with delight because of the richer, nuttier flavor of that wheat! (We love good food, what can I say?)
Erin’s Sourdough English Muffins – Oh, yeah! Have you made the English muffins yet? You should! They’re amazing. Our weekend batch became the bread of several types of sandwiches, including wild salmon and hamburgers. So good to have lacto-fermented mayonnaise on them! Now, today, I must make more mayonnaise. Oh, and more English muffins!
