Wholemeal rolls feedback

We had a roll and a half each last night and thoroughly enjoyed them. Possibly I have never enjoyed a wholemeal bread more. You see, I am no fan of wholemeal. I am well aware of how good it is for me and that I should eat it in preference to white bread, but really have never enjoyed it. I normally make a blend of white and wholemeal as a nudge in the right direction.

It occurs to me that I should give feedback on the Bacheldre Watermill Organic Stoneground Strong 100% Wholemeal Flour but I am stumped for what to say. I just do not have sufficient experience of, or love for, wholemeal flours to be able to offer any sound opinions. It made some tasty bread, possibly on the lighter side of any brown bread that I have made before. Was that due to the flour or because I added some Bill? Maybe I used more yeast than usual? Who knows.

The best that I can offer you is that we ate the bread and it was good and we came back for seconds, even though it was so filling that we could not manage a whole second roll. We shall be having more of the rolls with soup at lunch time.

Feedback on the recipe has to be positive and I did love the oaty coating. It looks pretty and it tastes good. I used equal quantities of Jumbo rolled oats (as I had no ordinary porridge oats), pinhead (coarse) oatmeal and fine oatmeal.

One for the repertoire.

Now, how much of this bag of flour can I distribute? I am never going to use 16 kilos on my own.

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

La Cavalerie. We had been going to stay the night here, there’s both a cheese France Passion (we are in Roquefort country) and a CCP Aire. It’s a lovely little town. However with last night’s warning of tonight’s address from M. Macron… we are covering more ground in expectation of imminent travel restrictions. Just called… Continue reading October 28, 2020 at 12:31PM

Seeing some sensational autumn colours on this drive but finding it hard to capture what with all the bouncing, twisting and turning. Not to mention the crappy IG camera facility. #livereportingfromtheroad #france #autumn2020
