I’m finally back to sharing songs, now that we’ve got some nice weather. This time my wife, Tracy, joined me!
I can’t believe this is already the third one of these things that I’ve posted, but here we are. This time around, I tried to make some proper sourdough boules. The result was a bit more… slack than I wanted but it had an amazing open texture and was possibly the best tasting loaf of bread I’ve ever made.
I also decided to see how well my starter worked with an enriched loaf. This time making a pain de mie. The texture wasn’t as open as I was hoping for, it ended up being quite dense, but it was soft and full of flavour, perfect for toast and sandwiches.
Recipes for both of these can be found at The Perfect Loaf.
I led worship for two churches on two continents today. Crazy times.
Staying in during the weekend is far from all bad.
This was really easy to put together but tricky to handle. If you’re familiar with bakers percentages, this dough is an 80% hydration dough. The recipe was a modification of this one. I topped it with tomatoes, peppers and rosemary.
This one is my second-favourite hymn.
It’s been a trying week, but it is good to know that, no matter what, God is good.
Five days in and my sourdough starter is truly alive and ready to make bread!
It’s been a fairly productive time at home. It’s going to be interesting to write about this experience in Fake Suede!
Here’s the next Hymn at Home. I’ll be recording and uploading requested hymns soon!
