Here we are again in my kitchen and this month there is a lot of bread happening. My friend Paula gave me two kilograms of fresh yeast. As most home bakers know, this is an enormous amount of yeast. I have tried my hardest to make a dint in it.
Mouthful/handful size panini rolls made with yeasted olive oil dough. These were soft and easy for the little people to handle.
A yeasted white loaf which almost turned into a high top. Once again, this was a hit with the kids.
Kipfler potatoes from the patch where we grew potatoes last year. We either missed them last year or they continued to produce. Either way, they were a happy discovery.
This cauliflower weighed in at just over four kilograms. Although it looks like two separate heads, they were actually growing together. I see cauliflower soup in my future.
I recently purchased some beautiful fresh pecan nuts, still in their shells from Elina at the Sunraysia Farmers Market. Before they all disappeared I wanted to bake something special with them. So, I invented this sourdough loaf containing currants, sultanas, barberries, dried figs and pecan nuts. While it was still warm the loaf received a generous honey glaze. This turned out to be comforting winter food at its best.
Are you baking or inventing? I hope so!
Are you keeping warm?
Thanks for calling in, I hope you are having a lovely Sunday.
I am linking up with Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial.
Lastly, Katie and Reuben have kindly hosted me on their blog House of Humble. Take a peek.
