More on Bread.

I don't wish to over-bore you with my bread making activities, but things are progressing.

At last, today I made a loaf of bread of which I'm quite proud, and it's all thanks to YOU. I followed your collective advice (something I rarely do), and it's paid off.

A very hot oven, a dish of water in the bottom, a splash of vinegar, all have gone into making my first ever really good 'pain de campagne'. I can hardly express how pleased I am; I just hope I will be able to repeat the process in the future. It rose beautifully, it tastes good, and it looks like a proper job. SUCCESS.

  3. Jacqueline, I simply added a teaspoon (to 500gm flour) of ordinary red wine vinegar. I have no idea what it does, but it became part of my first really good loaf, so who knows....
