kamut and barleycorn
After the big success with the pain a l'ancienne yesterday, i can't stop baking!. So after work today I wanted to try other type of bread so I check in Bertinet's book and I decided to follow his recipe for baguettes and already the white flour when I decided to experiment...very risky I'd say as I am kind of a beginner.
So looking in my flours I mixed kamut and bareycorn, both that I never use and decided to make the baguettes. Here is the recipe I used:
- 280g organic kamut flour
- 280g mix grain barleycorn flour
- 10g dried yeast
- 10g sea salt
- 350g water
I mixed the yeast with the flour and then added the rest of the ingredients with the scraper until the dough was firm enough to work with it in the table. I kneaded for about 20min and the left it resting for an hour in a bowl cover with a towel. After this hour the dough doubled and then I cut it in four and rolled it in baguettes, left them again another hour resting, where they doubled again.
This time I baked them at home, so no steam oven so I put a tray with water and spray water before put the bread: max oven at 240 degrees during approximately 12 min. The result was a compact bread but lots of nutty flavors, great smell.
Next day the bread was ok (actually I still have one baguette left and after 4 days it's quite good) so I took it to work to make my lunch: the bread won lots of flavors and textures when I toasted, so I put it back in the oven with some steam for a few minutes. I filled it up with some ginger pork, rocket, tomato and caramelized red onion, having spread olive oil in the bread. I have to say It was a really lovely lunch.
