@Bentio I think your bread looks yummy! I love occasionally adding Kamut to my basic no-knead sourdough recipe as the “whole grain” component, so I keep some of it in the house. Its beautiful color, buttery flavor and texture is just lovely. I use Breadtopia’s organic high protein bread flour (your strong white flour) and regularly use Turkey Red Whole Wheat or White Whole Wheat as the whole grain choice. I buy all my whole grain as whole berries and mill them as I need them. I’ve got a Mockmill 100 that I purchased from Breadtopia back in February 2018. I actually purchased all my bread making supplies from Breadtopia and still do as needed.
I do love Red Fife as well but decided to just stick to one darker whole wheat due to storage space. I keep all my extra flours and grains in my freezer and just keep one bag of the ground bread flour and one bag of my ground all-purpose flour (for feeding my sourdough, named Cyril) in my refrigerator.
I used to call my freezer “the meat locker” but now that it has to share its space with my flours, grains, fruit, meat and fish its name has changed to “the vault”, LOL! I keep my frozen veggies in the small freezer attached to my refrigerator in the kitchen. VERY thankfully our children bought us a separate free-standing upright freezer as a Christmas gift back in 2016. It’s been a blessing, especially during this COVID-19 situation.
This morning I baked a no-knead cinnamon bread for my husband. Due to my husband’s health needs, I modified Eric’s sourdough cinnamon raisin recipe back in July 2018 so that it’s “safe” and it’s one I bake about every 10 days or so. That way my husband has his “special bread” for breakfast toast every day.
When I bake I slice, bag and freeze my breads so I have them readily available as needed. I regularly bake my husband’s bread and then some good basic sourdough and sometimes a rye bread. One of my personal favorites is Eric’s cranberry-pecan bread. That one toasted with some good butter or a smear of almond butter (or peanut butter) and jam is a delight. God bless having a toaster oven, LOL! It’s just the two of us so I only bake about 3-4 times a month for our personal needs. Of course, my Cyril gets fed about every 10-12 days so instead of discarding any of him, I make a batch of sourdough pancakes before he eats. I simply can’t waste any Cyril. To me, that would be a sacrilege! Cyril was a gift from a dear local friend and he’s been my faithful happy starter since he came to live with me in February 2018. I look forward to the day I can once again share my breads with family and friends.
Stay safe dear Benny!
