Not yeast. Slight raw flour smell/taste.


1-1/8 cups water
1-1/2 tablespoons butter
3 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 tablespoons dry milk
2-1/2 teaspoons yeast (one packet)

That's it.

hmmmm. how does the raw flour taste? Smell? rancid? Have you tried the same recipe with a different flour? This is a new one to me.

It's also entirely possible I don't know what I'm talking about.

Maybe it is "yeasty". I put a piece in the toaster just long enough to knock the chill off and now that I'm chewing it, no, it doesn't taste like flour.

Thanks Levain
The dogs will be happy.
So.On another note,I've decided to till and plant 2 acres in grain.Just not sure which would be best for all baking.
I will be processing my own sugar from my sugar beet this winter(organic),but I'm not sure on grains.
I'm just playing around here,but I may take it further in the future.
Any input would be appreciated

How cool!

You need to contact Thom Leonard of Heritage Grain and Seed. He's kind of the American Artisan bread wheat guru and a super cool guy. Tell him Jim from Seven Stars Bakery sent you. His contact is at the bottom of this link.

Thom will be able to help you decide what strain of wheat would be best suited for your climate.

Good luck
Jim

Thanks so much!!!
If you're ever this way on your tiger,we can sit on the porch eating fresh cheese and bread after a spin on the bikes in the mountains.I tried to cook a fish on my catalytic converter and front pipes on our spin north to the arctic.The wind was too strong to get a good heat,but wouldn't it be awsome to bake on the pipes while riding!!We've done potatoes(takes quite a few miles)but the roasted garlic worked well.I've never seen anything comercially for sale for this application.
An adventure baking" how to" book would be cool.
Just a thought.

Thanks Nickel
We'll give it a go.I heard of one couple travelling and they had copper pipe around the exhaust for warm water.They would hook up to water at a gas station,and have a quick shower,or laundry.I'll try the berg for bread making,as long as there aren't too many river crossings.The pamara may have more heat though for dough.We'll see..
Cheers

Potato bread

This time I used a higher cooking temp, and let it a bit longer to allow for the crust to form. Much better, but still way short than the way I used to make it in a terracotta stove. Soon I will get me one of those again... Sorry for the crappy pic.
