My failed attempt at Marble Rye is in the attachment.

No questions will be answered.

Thank you.

The bread is good, just not like the picture. :)

Don't forget, Sally - we learn more from our failures than from our successes.


Try it again.  You'll get it.

Eating your bread results in closing of the eyes (and moaning!) so looks don't really matter!

Aw! But look how many successes you've had! Whatever happened this time, you will have learned from it and learning leads to success!

Besides, looks to me like they used some brown paint in that thar photo!

It's still delicious, I'm sure of that. The picture has been "doctored up" or the bread in the picture has. The dark part is too dark not to have something in it other than flour. Chocolate, perhaps?

supposed to be either coffee or caramel coloring.

I used the amount of coffee called for in the recipe. If I had Peter Reinhart's phone number, I could tell him a few of the things that passed through my mind this morning....

You're too polite to say vile things to Peter Reinhart, but I surely understand the impulse. Does he have a website where he answers questions? You need some answers here.

I'd be interested in the flavor of your bread, because I'll bet that it's excellent.

THe flavor was very good, next time I'll add a little more caraway seeds.

But I should have shaped it free-form. I doubt I'll be making it again, though. Gotta move on to the next in line, which is "whole grain brain extraordinaire" or some other flashy name like it

Should you feel like asking, Reinhart's e-mail is bestbreads@gmail.com. Just so you'll know. I googled him up...so handy sometimes.

I think *you* have a "whole grain brain extraordinaire", BTW. ;-)

PR is great about answering emails.  I remember emailing him some stupid question, and I got an answer the same day.

That's both wonderful and amazing. When can the man find the time? Still, the impression I got from his blog was that he was happy to answer e-mails. A remarkable man in so many ways.

You said it.  I have only taken one class from him; I think Gretchen has taken several.  He is truly remarkable and such a nice person.

That's a beautiful slice of Cloud Rye, isn't that what you planned to make? ;-)

(post #65201, reply #11 of 20)

I've given it three possible names:

"Blobbed Rye"

"Faint Marble Rye on Drugs"

"Drunk Baker's Marbled Rye"

Don't let him intimidate you, he's made some corner-worthy comments himself. ;-)

Hey, the corner can be fun! Don't let the MadMom scare you.

Or geographic rye? It kind of looks like Florida (minus the panhandle).

You may have failed at marbling, but you created a fault line! I'd say that's earth-shaking!
