I think I just might have accomplished a personal goal. It's not a lofty goal, but since it has proven quite difficult for me, the fact that I DID IT the other day gives occasion for celebration. Here, let me show you.
cheddar crackers. But today! Oh today was the day! I have to say that it was quite good, too. I made some cream of cauliflower soup and the bread made for a very yummy side dish.
The only thing that I have to figure out is how to decrease the first rise time. My initial rise took almost eight hours. I don't really have eight hours to wait, but if that is what it takes to have a perfectly soaked wheat bread that has soured...I'm all over it.
