Another loaf of sourdough. I was particularly happy with this one. I've been baking lots of loaves lately, trying to improve the appearance of my bread. I'm perfectly happy with the taste and texture, which is the most important thing, but I do like a loaf to be pretty too.
Update: Recipe used can now be found in Spelt Sourdough Made Simple!
The warm weather means a constant flow of eggs from the laying flock, and even the bantams are contributing regularly. The hens had ideas about hiding their eggs, and after a few days of no eggs and no luck discovering their hidden nests, they have been restricted to afternoon free-ranging only.
Are you starting festive baking yet or is it too early for you?
