I know there's a post elsewhere about "Other Toys" but I didn't see one for "Other Hobbies". I know that some consider our cars as "a hobby" but this thread is meant to address hobbies other than cars/trucks/motorcycles
Don't be shy. Let your freak flag fly and show us what you do when you don't have a wrench or OBD reader in your hand.
So here goes:
I make bread. I even go so far as to grind my own flour. Wheat, spelt and rye are my primary grains (so far).
That doesn't include white flour as I don't want to spend $50+ to buy a sieve small enough to get the bran out of the whole wheat grain that I grind. I only use unbleached white flour (and that is hard to find--long explanation but I can elaborate if needed). Suffice it to say, just because it says
it's unbleached, it ain't necessarily so.
Here are my latest work(s) of art:
This is what <1/4 teaspoon
(not a misprint) of yeast does to 1 kg (2.2 lb) of unbleached white flour (50%), whole wheat flour (25%) and spelt flour (25%) (I grind my own flour except for the unbleached white) when allowed to work for 12 hours. It started out at a bit less than the 1 litre mark (where the vertical red line starts).
On the counter ready to be divided
In the baskets to proof (covered) for another hour while the oven heats
And here they are after 45 minutes
and opened up (yah, I know: out of focus) but they're already in the freezer so no new pics.
Thanks for looking.
