Sourdough Bagels (Test 1)

Thanks to my friend Ben, I ended up with 25 pounds of Ardent Mills Kyrol flour. It’s a high protein flour (14.3%) which is supposed to be great for bagels. I hadn’t made bagels in a while and I wanted to test out a new recipe plus this flour. This was the first test and,…

Multiple Flour Sourdough

Diastatic Malted Barley Flour Experiment #1 – Sourdough

I bought a bag of diastatic malted barley flour (DMBF) a few years ago when I heard it makes a great addition to pretzels, bagels and other types of bread. I’ve used it a few times but have never done a side-by-side comparison to a loaf using the diastatic malted barley flour vs a straight…

Aleppo Pepper + Mozzarella Sourdough

I finally got my hands on some Aleppo pepper and knew it needed to go into some bread. Aleppo pepper, in my opinion, is like a combination of sun dried tomatoes, red pepper flakes and paprika. It has a slight smokiness and a lot of earthiness without an overwhelming kick of heat. I paired the…

Blue Corn + Pepita Sourdough

I wanted to make a “New Mexico” sourdough but had recently made a loaf with green chile and another with red chile. What else is a typical New Mexican ingredient? Blue corn!
