  • More Bread Baking…getting the crust right.

    I’ll be posting this while I bake. So watch for updates.

    I am able to bake really good bread, but I can’t seem to get the crust as crunchy as I’d like. I comes out pretty crunchy if I bake in one of these. he problem is, It is a large round loaf that, while quite yummy, is not the shape needed for lunches. I need a loaf….yeah, Serious First World Problem.

    The trick to a great crust, according to the ‘experts’ is getting it to steam inside of a closed vessel. It works fairly well as proved above.

    I always use the Poolish method for a starter for any bread or pizza dough. The poolish (or starter), made the night before. Its a little flour, yeast, and water. The Poolish is ready to go.

    the bread will be baked in one of these.

    The manufacturer says that this can handle up to 6-7 cups of flour. I want room for expansion so 5 cups flour will be the start point not including the Poolish. Flour should be weighed. so 5 cups is about 600g which is about 22oz of bread flour, 100g or 3.5 oz of semolina, 4 tbs olive oil, 2 tsp sugar, 2 1/2 tsp salt, 4 tsp of Baker’s Special Dry Milk, just a dach of yeast to help out, and 18 oz of water =/- to get the texture right.

    Put it all in the stand mixer on low for 5 minutes. I reserve some of the water for later. Mix it and then let it sit for 10-15 minutes while the flour absorbs the water.

    I had to add a little water to the dough and now 10-15 minutes of stand mixer on slow. The dough should just stick to the bottom of the bowl and not the sides. The gluten process starts here in this and the previous step and finishes after the proofing and rising. After a few minutes, the gluten strands are evident in the dough.

    The manufacturer says to let it rise for 30 minutes in an oiled bowl, then shape it, and put it in the loaf baker for an hour. I oiled and cornmealed the pan so it doesn’t stick. OK…here we go!

    Brush the top with water, 3 1/2 inch deep cuts, dust with flour, and into the 475 oven for 45 minutes.

    All finished!

    Perfect!

      Basic bread recipe (very similar to the French/Italian recipe we use at work)
      4 and 1/2 cups flour
      2 tsp salt
      1 tblsp sugar
      1 tsp yeast
      3 tblsps Oil (I prefer olive and you can up or down the amount depending on your tastes)
      1 1/3 cup of warm water (here’s the tricky part)
      As to the water. It depends on how hard your water is. The harder the water, the more of it you need. I am tending to use 1 and 2/3 cups of water to get a decent dough. Sometimes almost two cups.

      If you have a mixer (recommended) mix at a low speed for about 3-4 minutes with the dough hook. then for about 5 minutes at a higher speed.
      Turn out of the bowl and round into a ball, cover with a plastic sheet and let sit for about ten minutes allowing the autolyse to set in (makes it easy to work with after). Or let it sit for an hour to rise first until it’s doubled in size.
      Punch down and shape it as you desire (for making a french loaf (or italian) roll it out long). Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and let rise for about another hour. Humidity helps with this. Better the humidity the better the rise. Proofing features on ovens help, with a bowl of boiled water.
      If proofing in an oven, remove after it’s risen to the size you desire and let rest for ten minutes uncovered.
      Preheat oven to about 400 degrees or more.
      Cut bread however you like (three diagonal slashes for french, long straight one down the center for italian)
      Place in oven, spray floor with water and set temperature to 375 and bake for 30+ minutes.

      This has been the recipe I have used more or less for the past 8 years since I have been baking my own bread. Each time I have moved I have had to adjust the water due to differences in areas.

      Should we be worried that all the Democratic presidential candidates combined have raised far more money than Trump has? Is there enough Trump Derangement Syndrome out there that we could be stuck with one of these lunatics starting next January?

      look at the numbers, tho, and Trump is doing better than Bush and Obama did. Also, people are forgetting that there are A LOT of Dem candidates this time, so that adds up. Let’s see how it goes when there is one Dem nominee. Bernie has a new fund raising strategy this time, too. It’s a subscription service. So keep your head on your shoulders and feet on the ground.

      Hillary is dying to join the Presidential race for 2020. She’s waiting for the Democrats to ask her to step in. The problem is, they’re not going to. They may pretend that fake Dossier doesn’t exist or gloss over it, but they know damn well there is a lot she can be hammered with.

      They get to question the House Managers after both sides present their cases. It’s a shame they aren’t allowing cameras. It’ll be fun to watch Schiffty and NoNads start squirming when they are no longer in charge of the examination process.

      I’d personally fajita Schiff over those hearings in the bunker and why the President’s counsel was not permitted to attend. Then I would slice and dice him over the bogus “obstruction of Congress” article and Executive Privilege. I don’t recall if the Senators themselves get to question or if only the counsel for the President is permitted, but Schiffty is going to need several pairs of depends when Cruz, Sekelow, Lee and Starr finish him off.

      Meanwhile, there are some pretty good candidates running in his district reminding them that Schiff hasn’t done a thing for them. And these clowns from California have a LOT to answer for here at home.

      Anybody want 2 free beagles? They’ve been home for 30 minutes, knocked over all the items on an end table cracking my crystal whatchamacallit – the thing you put brandy in, apparently found one of my slippers, there’s only one where I left them, spilled one water dish all over the kitchen floor and destroyed half a roll of paper towels. In the dining room. Like they don’t get enough exercise at doggy day care. You know those ‘about the breed’ sites that say beagles are couch potatoes? Fucking liars.

      To be fair, they aren’t huskies or border collies and most beagles you will meet come from lines bred for show. Bonnie and Mia came from lines bred to hunt, their breeders don’t give a toss about the AKC, they go with Field and Trial. So THIS kind of beagle is much closer to a border collie w/o the discipline because their sole purpose in life is to have fun.

      And if you needed any proof of that, here is Peter Daou in The Independent, chastizing her for her Bernie remarks and completely sucking up to the Bernie Bros. If you don’t know who Peter Daou is he’s worked for the Clintons for years and is the most sycophantic twitter poster I’ve ever seen. To the point of being sickening. Here’s he is throwing Hillary under the bus

      While we will never gratuitously attack Clinton to ingratiate ourselves to her critics, we cannot sit back while the Democratic party establishment tries to minimize and tear down the mass movement Sanders has helped build. That includes the Obamas, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden and other Democratic leaders who over the past two decades have proven unable (or unwilling) to stem a rising and emboldened right wing in America, while they continue to peddle the fiction that Sanders and his voters are “too far left”. It is long past time for a progressive overhaul of the entire party, and it would better for our country and our future if Democratic leaders encouraged the Sanders movement rather than try to erase it.

      While the current crop of would be secular humanist Primary wannabe losers play, gouge the one currently on the floor, we should look at how these creatures got to where they are. And discover why the Millennials can’t see their obvious short-comings.

      Like so much going on schools these days very little is what it seems. The boosters of State sponsored secular education, by which they mean that schools should not have religious instruction, are on a hiding for nothing, because religion will not disappear from schools, even if they manage to abolish the Bible and its stories. The secular ‘religion’ of autonomous self-realisation will simply replace it. A secular education is neither morally nor philosophically neutral.

      Secularism has no inbuilt resistance to totalitarianism because it is its own judge and it can supply no good reason for humility. The presumption of secularism’s authority is a consequence of its own hubris.
      Two hundred years ago John S Mill in chapter 5 of “On Liberty” had this to say, among other things, on education.

      “A general State education is a mere contrivance for moulding people to be exactly like one another; and as the mould in which it casts them is that which pleases the dominant power in the government, whether this be a monarch, an aristocracy, or the majority of the existing generation, in proportion as it is efficient and successful, it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by a natural tendency to one over the body.”

      An unexamined secular education is an even greater threat to young minds than the Bible because it feigns the gratuitous authority of neutrality. What’s more it thinks that authority to be a good thing. Without the alleged overarching “tyranny” of the biblical declaration of human dignity pupils will be free to reach their “full potential” although just what full potential might mean we are not told.

      The nature of the authority assumed over the minds and bodies of children by contemporary State education is evident in a number of ways. It might be the politicisation of teaching English literature in the context of women’s rights, pacifism, sexual identity and most recently transgenderism. Chronological snobbery, a consequence of having no belief in transcendent or permanent truth encourages constant revisionism in the teaching of history.

      GK Chesterton got it right when he said, “When man ceases to worship God he does not worship nothing, he worships anything” Chesterton might have added, “especially himself”.

      The issue spins around what it means to be human. The Bible teaches us that we have been created male and female in God’s image. Maleness and femaleness possess a dignity given to us by God. It is this belief in God-given dignity that gave to Western civilisation the liberating realisation that human beings are in possession of the way to freedom. And the appropriate response to that is gratitude not the overarching hubris of self-realisation.

      Neither Mr Hipkins nor his co-belligerents have made any new discoveries about what it means to be human or the nature of freedom. Freedom to choose is certainly intrinsic to our humanity but that freedom involves, at the very least, we choose the best over the good, but most significantly right over wrong.

      According to secular doctrine the individual human being is alone in the world. Dignity is discovered in the right to make any autonomous decision because that’s what it means to be human. Self-realisation is the epitome of humanness.

      It is not possible to have sinners anymore, only victims. The biblical narrative of the sinner seeking forgiveness and redemption is replaced by the victim forever seeking refuge in human rights. The capacity for evil does not lie in the heart of man or woman. The mystery of both good and evil can be solved by a secularised and dechristianising education. Prometheus is the hero not Jesus Christ.

      So we have two conflicting religions with radically different ideas of freedom. , Biblical Christianity teaches that freedom is the gift of submission to a redeeming God who reconciles human beings to themselves.
      The religion of self-realisation teaches freedom is found in self-realisation. Socially constructed identity is all.
      So we should not be surprised that contemporary education would teach its pupils to believe a fantasy; that they can make the world what they would like it to be. The authority of desire is nothing other than the individual ego. Even the ancient Greeks knew that.

      The obvious irony should cause us to take pause. The dignity given to us by our Creator and our understanding of equality is presumed all the while rejecting that same Creator’s authority and provision. The fantasy is a parasite sucking the juice of life from its host. The only identity that cannot speak its name is the one that holds up the roof from which all the others shout.

      Snowflakes please take note!

      🙂

      Warren Pledges DOJ Task Force To Investigate Political Opponent

      Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren will create a Justice Department task force if elected president to investigate alleged corruption during the Trump administration, she said in a plan released Tuesday.

      “Donald Trump has run the most corrupt administration in history,” Warren asserted in the plan, entitled “Restoring Integrity and Competence to Government after Trump.”

      “I will direct the Justice Department to establish a task force to investigate violations by Trump administration officials of federal bribery laws, insider trading laws, and other anti-corruption and public integrity laws, and give that task force independent authority to pursue any substantiated criminal and civil violations.”

      Scrambled eggs, beaten eggs, butter and sour cream and in a saucepan is awesome!

      Fresh tasty, fluffy and nutritious.

      Cheat and add a pinch of baking powder.

      Now… you got FLUFFY eggs!

      Mark Levin, a constitutional lawyer and radio host, presents his own concise argument against impeachment. It’s not just an attack on Donald Trump. It’s an attack on the Constitution of the United States of America.

      https://youtu.be/2E1mOkNohl8

      Even if you don’t like our President and/or can’t tolerate Levin’s delivery, please listen to his words.

      @ Bunk X:
      Just forwarded that to abunchapeeps after watching it. Note that Levin was not a Trump guy until after the election. Note also that Ben Shapiro is still not a Trump guy.

      “Anybody want 2 free beagles?”

      Ugh. No. They are hunting dogs and need a lot of exercise. Also if they get a taste for blood, it is even harder. My uncle lives on a farm and had one. Despite having +100 acres to roam, his Beagle kept wondering over to the neighboring farm’s chicken coop and went on a killing spree. The neighbor was kind enough to call (he knows whose dog it was). After the second time it happened, my unlce and the dog had a “hunting accident.”

      @ Buckeye Abroad:

      yeah, but that’s not unique to beagles, altho it’s unusual for a single dog. There’s a reason why most attacks on humans are done by multiple dogs, and that’s usually true of attacks on livestock. Or wildlife even. My Tramp, a border collie, managed to kill a possum with my cousin’s beagle mix, Cory He’d never killed before or since. Cory, however, was an assassin. The cat population in the neighborhood was decimated inside of 3 months after she arrived. Yeah, dogs sometimes kill. And multiple dogs are more likely to attack than singles.

      I gather the so-called trial was in session until 2 am. Wonder if anything actually happened.

      I listened to this last night. It was rather compelling. And I hope Trump called his lawyers and told them to listen.

      I’m pissed as hell that none of them called that pig Zoe Lofgren on her mischaracterization of his statement “I can do what I want” – he was referring ONLY to his right to fire Mueller.

      I have noticed this particular opinion lately surfacing in several publications. Does anyone know where this has originated from as it appears to have been planned for public release by ‘the usual suspects’.

      Slo-Joe may have caught the latest strain of this nonsense and just regurgitated it as he often does, but I’d still like to know who and where this latest iteration of the canard came from!

      Well it’s starting to appear in various ‘progressive’ publications such as the NZ Herald (alias Pravda on the Waitamata harbour)and such. Mostly from well known groggy shills. Nothing new there. I just wondered who had been whispering in Slo-Joe’s earhole!

      Did anyone else hear that Nadler had been yanked from presenting to the Senate after his psycho remarks that the Senators who voted against them would be guilty of being co-conspirators?

      Oh man, these guys are gonna wish they’d NEVER listened to Schiffty…..

      @ The Barbarian:

      TBH, I’m not paying attention. While I was doing dinner prep I heard Rush say Schiff said something about not being able to trust the ballot box, but that’s all I know.

      All the remarks are psycho. Those people live in an asylum and think it’s reality. Oh, another thing I did hear is that Schiff lied about Parnas speaking to Zelinsky when apparently it was the head of Burisma he’d spoken to. Schiff obviously lied about it because he redacted the remainder of the memo that would have made that clear. Did he lie to Nadler about it? Who cares? What difference does it make? The entire thing is a lie. There’s going to be no resolution to this. These people are going to continue in this matrix world until they go absolutely mental on camera and start eating their own flesh.

      That’s all I want to know.

      If Schiffy lied to Congress then when will he be tried?

      It’s really just that simple.

      This interminable talk fest has run it’s course. Time to get the suspects into orange jump suits, perp walk them, and get them into court and try them.

      Is that too much to ask?

      Even just a mere handful of these lying bastards having their day in court is all I ask.

      When?

      Please tell me when?
