Bread notes

Baked off "grandma's 2009 bread", as well as 1st loaf of "5-minute artisan" bread.

5-Minute artisan:
  • Crumb: very tender, not wet at all, nice holes, fluffy!
  • Flavor: very clean, like fresh French bread
  • Crust: closer to French bread: golden, a bit chewy, thin
  • To change: add more salt! Seemed to not be salty enough
Grandma's 2009 bread
  • 95%! Hit the jackpot with this one. Perfect crumb, perfect crust, cooked through/not gummy at all; but could use a bit more rye/sour flavor.
