Bread

Recommended Posts

Interesting fact regarding mostly rye breads. My book says these are only ever made with sourdough, as the acid helps to reduce the effect of enzymes in rye that otherwise prevent a stable structure from forming during the rise. 

 

Here's a bit of what King Arthur has to say about rye bread...

The underbaked bread however is f'cking delicious.

You know, when I (often) had this problem with underbaked sours of assorted varieties, I found they toasted up really well!

Yes, flat and underbaked but not a problem for very long. 

 

I think you can cheat and use expandex or even ultratex if you use yeast but really why?

Cause yeast works? (well, except for all-rye).

 

Wait, now I think you're saying if yeast works, why use the modernist stuff?

Yeah, they're rice cups, which I also learned after buying and using a donabe, and reading a few cookbooks on the subject!

No I'm saying if you want to make pure rye bread using yeast you could, by adding modified tapioca starch to create a mesh.

My lack of fresh air is causing brain problems, and I now understand. 

 

But delving into the modernist pantry may have been what really confused me; after all, this is a space safe from sous viders, et al.

King Arthur out of Bread Flour!!!

Well that would explain why yesterday's email was full of bread recipes using All Purpose White.

 

As I mentioned somewhere I found an extra 5 pound bag in my pantry - it expired in December that will get tossed out if it's not used before Passover. If anyone wants to come up to UWS I'm happy to pass it on.

Based at least on what it's like in Prospect Heights (Brooklyn), I'm getting the feeling that online purchasing is crashing, but physical stores are still well-stocked.

 

Is that others' experience?
