Almost four hours of raising time total. That makes a tasty bread when you let them rise longer. I actually let some of my bread rise for a long
time once and it turned like a baguette in the middle, but the extra aging wasn't that great for making sandwiches, For everyday bread a little over
two hours total is just right. I like sourdough rye bread but not sourdough white breads that much. Aging more gives more flavor and a tougher
I suppose it depends on what you are doing with the bread, I had a ham and cheese on baguette one time long ago, just a three inch long piece. It was
so full of flavor, but now if I eat a lot of it, it gets overwhelming for me.
Nice video. Learning about the towel and the proper way to score the bread was really helpful
I do not know if I would travel so far to get the ham and cheese, seems like a long way. We have a coop here with lots of different cheeses, I do not
know if they have that kind. Never heard of that type of ham, they have lots of different ham types here in the stores, but I never saw that one. We
do not have a french store here, we do have an Italian market though. We used to have an Indian (India) store with restaurant but it folded up. Not
that many people here like much real India foods that much, after everyone tried it for the first year, their business went down quite a bit.
I suppose you have to chase a craving once in a while. The baquettes from Wallmart kind of suck compared to real ones.
Oh, the ham is unsmoked ham, they have that at the Italian Deli.
