Bread day 11

Is it 11 already? I've lost count. It was an incredibly productive bread
day with 24 loaves and 7 deliveries. Another yeasty episode of Sadie
takes over the kitchen!

Some of my ideas weren't the smartest...

But with dough up to my elbows, I got those 10 loaves mixed...

I guess I do need that 20-quart mixing bowl after all.

The molasses coriander bread was better behaved. It tastes just like
the fresh dark bread we bought from the Russian bakery in Coney Island.
My sister and I are both rather nuts over this loaf.

The stuffing bread came out with a crusty crust and a soft middle, the kind
you can eat by the fistful, leaving the shell behind. This is how I ate my bread
whenever we'd get a loaf from the Italian bakery in Brooklyn. By the time we
got home I'd massacred the inside of our loaf, leaving the crust for my
disappointed parents.

When I brought this loaf to friends Helen and Faith, Helen yelled, "Don't rip it!
Don't." What self-control.

Happy bread day, and happy Thanksgiving to you.

Thanksgiving Flavors!

Thanksgiving bread day is upon us!

If you will have any gluten-free guests at your party, may I suggest a batch of
GF stuffing?

-Cube your bread and toast it until it is extra crunchy.
-Add garlic, ginger, squash, fennel, kale, chestnuts, dried figs, rosemary, soup
stock, and/or whatever else you have in your fridge!
-Bake it in or out of your bird at about 375 for an hour, covered if possible.

All these flavors will make a great stuffing. One loaf will be good for stuffing
for 4 or 5 (heavy on the veggies).

Flavors for bread day this Monday will be:

Herbed Stuffing Bread
Caraway Ryeless Rye
Molasses Coriander

I will be out of town this weekend, which unfortunately means no sourdough.
My apologies, it will be back next bread day!

Loaves are $8 each or 3 for $20. Place your orders as late as Sunday night!
Breads will be delivered in San Francisco Monday between 4 and 8 pm.

To order, please leave a comment with your email, phone number and delivery address!

Bread day 9 and new flavors!

Hey all! Flavors this week will be:

Dill Sourdough
Orange Cinnamon
Za'atar Bread

Please place your orders by Saturday night by commenting on this post with
your contact information! Breads will be delivered in San Francisco on Monday
evening, and in the East Bay later in the week.

Loaves are $8 or 3 for $20.

Here's a shot of the awesome purple amaranth bread I made for
Wednesday's farmers market. The amaranth came from Serendipity Farms.

And the pile from bread day 9! The molasses raisin really made my day,
and the sourdough has changed yet again! Now it is soft like a sandwich
bread, with more crunch in the crust. One fan said "it smells like a real
German bread!"
