Little ♥ breads~
I used a recipe from the book my friend got for me from a reseller in the USA.. Rustic European Bread in the Bread Machine~ Still..thank you...It's a great book..no photos but the recipes are great for bread machines..baking OUTSIDE the box like I like to do..
I made small ♥s and a large baguette.. it's impossible what 3 1/2 cups of flour..water salt and yeast can produce:)
Just like tending gardens..it's amazing what time spent in the garden rewards us with..
White Fairy Roses..(not sure of their real name..but same look..prolific like the pink one..and grows exactly the same way and blooms at exactly the same time..HARDY..)From Heirloom Roses in the Maritimes..yrs and yrs ago..I have a binder w/ roses and clematis..but I showed it to someone..(not someone.. a dear friend:).. to help with a choice of clematis and ...now..well ...I cannot find that binder..right now..
Feverfew and Hostas..Henry Hudson Rose..And Summer Snow Clematis..
I wish I could remember the name of the vased white roses..they were suggested to me by Jodi from Gardenbuddies about 10 yrs ago..I still think of her and even more when these boom..very antique looking w/ a touch of spring green around the petals..they look old:)♥Vintage.. even a dusting of a brownish hue here and there..
Courtesy of the book..
3 cups bread flour
1/2 cup rye flour
1 1/4 cups water
2 1/4 tsp yeast
2 tsps salt..
This one is trickier as there is a resting time..IN the machine..But it worked for me..
In the bread machine pan combine half the flours with all the yeast an half the water.Process on dough setting and let rest 6-24 hrs..
I did 6..
Add the remaining flours water and salt to the pan..again dough setting
REmove..form into a ball. cover..let rest 20 mins..
Preheat your oven and stone at least 30 mins at 450F
Shape as desired this should make 2 baguettes..
Sprinkle a peel generously w/ cornmeal..let rise until doubled..make deep diagonal slits..Mist w/ water ,,shake the peel to make sure the bread is not sticking..
Open the oven and shovel the bread onto the hot stone..Bake 10 mins misting 3 or 4 times..reduce temp to 375 and bake 30 mins more or unti bread is evenly browned..
REmove..Cool and store in paper bags..
You could use any of your bread recipes to make the ♥s I think.
I am just getting a kick out of trying new recipes from this book.
You can slice in half..and adorn w/ garlic butter to accompany Carbonara~ W/ Edamame and Pine Nuts~
Very quick dinner when you are ..
In And Out Of The Garden~♥
I even give it..*****
We are having an unusually murky summer here with not very much sunlight..but high humidity and thundershowers possible almost every day it seems..
Still compared to 5 months of long johns and flannels and socks and slippers..
Flip Flops are so much easier~
I rest my QC case~
PS I adorned with egg wash and sesame seeds.
