Poolish Baguettes (post #65245)

in

I posted the bread of the weekend over at Ipke by mistake

Well, I guess I am finally starting to "get" the baguette shaping.

This recipe (from Bread Bakers Apprentice) is a little involved, at least as far as time goes, it calls for a poolish that stays at room temperature for 4 hours, then goes into the fridge overnight. Next day, from making the dough to baking the bread, you need about 5 hours.

They are awesome, though - the whole wheat flour shines through nicely - the whole wheat is added without most of the bran, that is sifted out. Neat method.

here are some photos

Much better shaping.  Now if you'll just tell us that you gained ... oh, about a hundred pounds ... we'll all be happy!

Nope. I gained 3 pounds, but honestly, I don't know where the heckypeck they are, because my clothes fit the same, and I am not turning into a female Hulk. At least I am not very green yet

Those are REALLY nice.

Do let us know when you start to turn green, and don't forget the photos! <G>

Just bought 12 pound dumbells yesterday - 10 pounds were not heavy enough for some exercises anymore.

I might start to turn green in a couple of weeks. I'll keep you posted.... :-)

this was a very good recipe, but next time I'll reduce the proportion of whole wheat just slightly.

Speaking of bread, apparently in the new book by Peter Reinhart, he embraces the "folding" method instead of kneading to death.

it makes me tempted to buy it, but of course, I am a very strong person, with a will power that stands high above average for the species.

Hey, I was trying real hard to believe that "strong will power higher than average of the species" or something to that effect. lol.

I'm sure you are a very strong willed person, Sally, I have total belief in you, however, I do know you have a bread passion combined with a love of all written word in cookbook form, I'll probably bet on the side of the subsequent posters, and all I really have to say is ENJOY the book!!!  You probably haven't caught up to my 400 or so! Or if you have why worry about one more!!!;-0

The way you're going it might not take two weeks. You may also develop a very lumpy brow. I can't wait to see the pictures. LOL
