" With Labour comes reward "

That bread looks fantastic
Thanks Ray . It's really tender with a great chew . Since I can't get a sour dough starter to survive , this is perfect .
a lot of time and work it appears to be, well worth the effort.
It was . Not really to bad if you're in the mind set to make something .
Looks great Rich!
Thank you Cliff .
I would be a bread junky if it was not for the diabetes. A bread like needs nothing more than butter and I could eat all four of those loaves.
I feel for ya . I'd be hard pressed to stay away . I can't stop eating it .
Great looking loafs Chop! But man...that is a lot of steps!
Thanks . It's really not to bad , and is actually easier than doing a bunch if kneading .

Heck yeah, Rich! That looks really good. I'm no breadmaker, but with your show-n-tell, I might could even make that myself...

I don't remember the Italian, but that one looks good, too. Bread making to me is kind of like sausage making. It's intimidating and there are tricks to make it come out like you want...

I bet it smelled awesome, too.

I ran across this while looking for something else .
...
That Dough whisk came in handy for this
...
Doing this again , no doubt about it .
...
This got long , so thanks for looking .
Original project shelved?
Those long threads take me about as long to draft as the entire project.
I'm getting a dough wisk Sometimes it is too much to drag out the stand mixer and clean up

It did . I'm watching football in the kitchen waiting for it to cool . It's so good . I'll be doing round 2 soon .

I got that for Christmas several years ago , and never used it . It works great for wet doughs . Gets it mixed and keeps your hands out of it .
Original project shelved?
No . I was looking around at flour tortilla recipes . I like to look at the stuff , and let it roll around my sub conscience for a few days . Did the same with this bread .

Thanks for leaving a comment .

That's funny you would say that,

I just placed an order today for 14 doors and drawers for a large kitchen Island that I am building in the shop.
And the doors and drawers are coming from Quebec. I am matching the existing kitchen .
( yes , labour and colour etc Canadian spelling ,lol :emoji_rolling_eyes: )

Thanks Chris . It's fun to do .

Thank you sir .

That's exactly the point of doing it really . Way cheaper than smoking meat . Some of my flour is at date , so I need to use it up .
I fed and put my 3 starters in the fridge. I got so much going on that my baking is on the shelf right now.
