Blackberries are naturally high in pectin, so it’s easy to make a simple blackberry jam with no added pectin. All you need is blackberries and a little bit of sugar or honey for blackberry jam, but a little splash of lemon juice, which is also very high in natural pectin, will help naturally set the jam and bring out the best berry flavour.

Carrot Mango Salad with Date Dressing

Serve this light, vibrant carrot, mango and fresh herb salad with a date dressing for a simple lunch or side dish. For the date dressing, I used Persian-style Feta, which is made from cow's milk, but you can replace with Greek variety, which is made from sheep's and goat's milk. Make a huge batch of this healthy salad to keep in the fridge as it makes the perfect accompaniment to your grill feast, but sprinkle the nuts over the salad right before serving, so they will stay crispy. Kaloute / kalute / kali dates are a type of fresh dates or wet dates with a soft meaty texture in Iran, similar to fresh mazafati dates. They're not strictly "fresh" as they have dried a little and darkened on the skin. The dried dates are great for the dressing too, but soak them first in hot water before mixing with other ingredients.

In the spirit of "ZERO Food Waste", this bread uses old bread and no longer needed sourdough starter, which results in a sensational, aromatic and crispy bread. A fantastic sourdough bread that is also known as "Discard Bread". It is very tasty and versatile. This discard bread has very pleasant sour note because of sourdough starter. Make sure that the proportion of sourdough discard does not exceed 40% of total soaker, otherwise the bread might be too sour. You can easily add 10% of this sourdough / old bread powder mixture to any other soakers without adjusting the recipe. This will add a little more flavour to your bread and you won't have to dispose of the leftover starter.

Chive Blossom Vinegar

Edible flowers can add a splash of colour and fun to a wide variety of dishes and chive blossoms are one of the few that add flavour too. This pretty, light purple, edible flower smells mildly of garlic with a hint of floral and taste similar to chives. They can be used dried or fresh, tossed in a salad, to garnish a dish, or used to make compound butter. They are also an excellent ingredient to infuse vinegar. Making infused vinegar is a great way to preserve the flavour of chive blossoms, and it makes a thoughtful hostess gift.
If you want a more onion-y flavour to the finished vinegar, add 2-3 tablespoons of chive leaves. White wine vinegar works well with chive blossoms, but champagne vinegar or apple vinegar would work just fine too. Just keep in mind that using stronger flavoured vinegars, the flavour and the colour of final infused vinegar would be different.
You can double the recipe if you have lots of chive blossoms. The finished chive blossom vinegar will keep for up to 6 months at room temperature in your cabinet or a year in a sealed bottle in the refrigerator. Use chive blossom vinegar in marinades, salad dressings, drizzle on roasted vegetables, and for any recipe where you would like to add mild onion flavour to.

Streusel cakes come in all sorts of variations and are always very popular. This one baked with spelt flour and blackberries is delicious for the whole family. This coffee cake recipe combines a fluffy, tender butter sponge cake base, while a traditional one usually features a yeasted batter, and a streusel pastry. The sweet, sour taste of the wild blackberries hidden under a thick layer of crispy crumble pastry goes perfectly with the sweetness and richness of butter cake. Although it has a really fancy look, this cake is actually fairly easy to make!

BottomStreusel
  • 300 g Blackberries
  • 120 g Butter, softened
  • 120 g Caster sugar
  • 2 Large eggs, at room-temperature
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 200 g White spelt flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 80 ml Wholemilk, at room-temperature
  • 100 g White spelt flour
  • 20 g Hazelnuts, chopped
  • 75 g Sugar
  • 75 g Butter, softened
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Lightly butter a 24-26 cm / 8-10 inch heart-shaped or round spring-form pan. Line the bottom with a piece of baking paper.
  2. Rinse the blackberries briefly under cold water in a sieve and drain on the paper towels. Beat the softened butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Mix the flour with the baking powder and pinch of salt in a bowl.
  3. Stir in half of the flour mixture until roughly combined, followed by the milk, and then the remaining half of the flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking pan and place the blackberries over the cake batter.
  4. Combine the flour, hazelnuts and sugar in a bowl. Add the butter and use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the blackberries.
  5. Bake the streusel cake on the middle shelf for about 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Peter Reinhart’s Kaiser Rolls with Pâte Fermentée

Tuesday, July 12, 2022

© 2022 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com


The distinguishing characteristics of a Kaiser roll / bun (In German, it's known as a Kaisersemmel, Kaiserbrötchen or Sternsemmel) is the star pattern on the top, a thin, slightly crisp crust and a soft, dense, and chewy crumb. They are invented in Vienna, and thought to have been named to honor Emperor Franz Joseph. In the 18th century, the price and weight of the bread roll were regulated by law. In 1789, the bakers' association therefore sent a delegation to Emperor Joseph II to ask for free pricing for the roll. The emperor was so impressed with the bakers' craftsmanship that he approved the removal of the roll from the statutes and the roll was therefore called the emperor's roll / Kaisersemmel.
They are excellent for all kinds of savory and sweet breakfast toppings but also a great base for any sandwich variations. The traditional method for sharing a kaiser roll requires a series of overlappign folds, like making a paper flower. I am using Peter Reinhart’s simpler knotted roll design showed on The Bread Baker's Apprentice page 82. If you want them to be perfect, use a kaiser roll stamp or use an apple cutter to make the roll more like a rosetta.
Pâte Fermentée is the French word for ‘old dough’, a type of preferment that can either be freshly prepared or a piece of "old" bread dough separated from the last dough after bulk fermentation. It is made up of flour, water, salt and commercial baker’s yeast. It is the only yeasted pre-ferment that contains salt. It gives a complex flavour to the bread, it enhances crust colour and makes the gluten network stronger, making the resulting rolls significantly better than their commerical counterparts.

Sourdough Bread with Old Bread and Seeds

To keep bread fresh for longer, it really only needs one thing: more water. Easier said than done, because simply dumping more water into the dough just doesn't work. Depending on the variety, flour can only absorbs a limited amount of liquid. The higher the W-value of a flour or its protein content, the more water can be bound. For example, the most highly refined soft flour has a W index of between 90 and 180. It absorbs up to 50% of its weight in water. Plain flour has a W index of between 180 and 250 and absorbs up to 65% of water. Spelt contains less gluten than wheat, and can therefore bind less water. As a general rule, the darker the wheat flour, the better its ability to absorb liquid. The lighter the flour, the more coarse-pored, fluffy and soft the crumb of a loaf can develop. Basically, old bread porridge is just flour cooked with water, which causes some of the starch to gelatinize, very similar to 'tangzhong' method, which helps retain a lot of moisture in dough. But in this recipe I am using old bread instead to make this 'pudding or porridge-like' starter.
I love adding nuts and seeds to my bread. If you do too, then one thing to rememeber is to soak the seeds and nuts beforehand. Otherwise, they take the moisture out of the dough and the bread will become dry again. The seeds are brewed with boiling water and get swollen with water. Cool it before adding to the bread, where they provide taste, bite and great nutritional value.

Single Strand Swiss Butter Braids / Einstrang-Butterzöpfchen

Sweet braided buns made from only one strand! Butterzopf is probably the most famous Swiss bread and usually baked in the form of a plait. These single-strand braids are about the size of regular buns, and can be halved and spread deliciously with butter and honey or jam, and enjoyed for breakfast or afternoon coffee. For these mini braids, I used a commercial yeast dough without a preferment, so they are rather simple and quick to make. Retarding dough overnight in the refrigerator adds flavour, improves texture and gives you much more flexibility as to when you can bake your bread. If desired, sprinkle some large pearl sugar, nuts or seeds on tops.

Finishing salts are an easy and perfect way to use the herbs in your garden and they make beautiful and delicious handmade gifts for the family and friends. The chive blossom salt not only tastes fantastic, but also looks great with its light purple colour.
You can use chive blossom salt on grilled meats and veggies, sprinkle it over avocado toast, and salads, or use it to make a compound butter. My favourite way to use it is to season a blue steak, salad, roasted asparagus and Quark cheese-so simple yet so dang tasty.
