Rosemary roasted potato bread - Test run successful


Recommended Posts

Rosemary roasted potato bread - test run successful.    Hydration 61%, fresh rosemary at 1 %, hard red spring whole wheat flour at 15%,  Hard white wheat artesian flour at 85%, roasted potatoes at 25%.  Taste is very nice, rosemary not overpowering,   Might try again at 2% later next year.    Still need to improve my shaping so line in bottom not visible.   If this was entered in to bread baking contest I would lose some points.  Everything else would score decently. This is another success as far as I am concerned for taste, crumb, texture and moisture.  
 

Temperature outside was -9C,   Made sure final dough temperature after final kneading at 75 F.

That looks like a good result!  I have never done bread in the Akorn because my wife “doesn't like everything with a smoky flavour”.  How does the wood smoke affect the flavour in this case?

I wouldn't imagine that bread to taste smokey.

When I bake in my Egg I use straight lump and do not put the dough on my stone until I have consistent thin blue grey smoke. I never get smokey tasting bread. Some of the best bread I ever tasted was made in a hot shepherds oven over oak wood,  out behind a winery in Healdsburg Calif. no smokey taste there either.  Fresh baked warm bread, a chunk of good cheese, and a glass of wine.  Good Stuff

The is no Smokey flavour.  I light my Kamado up 1.2 to 1.5 hours before I plan to bake to ensure Kamado is heat soaked for my desired baking temperature.     
 

One year I put smoking wood on for smoke and I will never do bread that way again because smoke taste was so strong,

      Hi Kamado Peeps,
      Been awhile since my last post.
      I got a great book on breads; I have always been keen on making my own loafs and pizza with success but never really nailed the authentic artisan type dough. So for father’s day I got a book and I have been having a go with great results. Oh, yeh there is an art to making good breads. I recommend this book for any enthusiasts. Flour Water Yeast Salt.
      All baked on my GAS webber.   As I get better I will challenge myself on the Kamado with some natural woods I can’t wait (wood fired home baked bread)  Also had to included the lemon meringue and poppy seed lemon cake baked on the webber 
      Keep smoking

      Ingredients
      8 Cloves of Garlic 2 Cloves of Black Garlic Butter to taste Salt and pepper to taste 2 Tomatoes 4 Slices of White Bread half-lemon juice and zest 100g mayonnaise 200g grated cheese (I usually use cow mozzarella, but parmesan works wonderfully) About 3cm of leek, coarsely chopped  
      peel the white garlic and place it in a mini-tray made of foil (it just needs to be large enough to hold the garlic and not let the butter drip away place enough butter in the mini-tray to your taste, I recommend not to drench the garlic in too much butter, just put in enough for it to melt and cook the garlic Add salt and pepper to taste, I usually make it a bit salty, so that I won't need to add anymore salt afterwards Cut the tomatoes in half from top to bottom, wash and remove the seeds. Dry it as best as you can and sprinkle salt. Place it into the smoker for about an hour or so (at about 115 C is fine) Along with the garlic, I start grilling the tomatoes, cut side down (skin side up), so they start grilling on the inside. After the white garlic is done, mix the smoked garlic on a bowl, along with the black garlic, lemon juice and zest, mayonnaise and blend them with a hand blender. Add in the leek and half the cheese. Remove the tomatoes from the grill, stuff them with the garlic cream and top it with the remaining grated cheese. Spread the garlic cream on the bread slices, and top them with the grated cheese as well Put the tomatoes and the bread back on the grill and leave it to cook for about 30 to 45min at 115 C. It really will depend on your preference for the bread... if you like it crunchier, let it for longer, if you like it softer, pay close attention to it as it goes real fast... Enjoy youself a nice side dish

      Semolina bread with whole-grain soaker test run was successful.   This used a Poolish and when Poolish was ripe I made the dough.   The whole grain were soaked in boiling water and kept at room temp for 4 hours,   Crumb, texture and taste very good.    For darker outside colour I should have baked at 30F hotter than I did.   I was at 400 F and should had been at 430 to 450 F.    Still happy with result based on taste this bread would make very good sandwich bread.   This is definitely a keeper recipe.

      Cracked Wheat Bread-test run successful.    This bread tastes very good.  It was made using hard white wheat artesian untreated flour, hard red spring wheat fresh ground, cracked wheat and malt syrup.  Pate Fermentee yeasted pre-ferment was made.  Cracked wheat made into soaker.  It was a 75 % hydration dough.

      Test run making Five-Grain Bread with Pate Fermentee.    Taste is very good.   I thought I had sunflower seeds but I didn’t so I used toasted sesame seeds in place of sunflower seeds.  Happy with result.   No picture of brotform loaf because I used expansion rack on Kamado and temperature gauge punctured one end of the loaf so appearance not nice.   With baking loafs I shouldn’t use expansion rack.  Small loaf baked on main rack.
