Oh yummy yummy yummy!

My last few loaves have had nigella seeds on them - yum.

Jeremy, one of the many things my Dad taught me before I left home ... along with how to change a tyre, how to wire a fuse, where to check the oil, etc, was how to sharpen a knife. My father is very fussy about sharp knives. I drive my mother-in-law crazy by insisting on sharp knives.

THINGS TP CAN'T DO.

Jeremy, loving your breads. Are they the ones which have high hydration? Do give us a crumb shot in the morning....hey, it's morning already...still dark it must be.

Tks, Jeremy. Wow...looks delicious..and just look at those nuts, fruit and seeds!

On the crumb, I can see uneven holes but it's not that much more open than mine although your hydration is higher. Dom, you want to do an experiment on this? Whether hydration affects the size of holes in wholemeal breads?

I actually thought about that since you likey holey bread And What I did was actually add more flour than the original fruit loaf you drooled over!

Ta, can't satisfy a perfectionist!

Now that would be a good experiment

Jeremy your mixed spelt/rye, figs, hazelnuts, sunflower, pumpkin seed , poppyseed loaves are spectacular.

The inside reminds me of Christstollen actually. How do you eat it? Just as is or with butter, for afternoon tea?

TP,

you mentioned in another post Jack Lang's theory on open texture in wholemeal loaves.

I don't think just increasing hydration will do the trick, but I could be wrong. I have gone reasonably high with hydration, but the texture tends to be heavier with the low gluten content. Jack also uses Vitamin C, but I don't know whether it makes much difference (another experiment to do)

I don't have much time for experiments at the moment, but it sounds like a good idea.

(Nice looking loaves Jeremy)

cheers
Dom
