Hello, everyone, Wolf here. I’m back for my occasional post on something Wolf-related. As you can see by the title, I’ve been doing some baking (with HH’s help.)
OK, let’s start:
Saturday night I made pizza. I have to say I’m really enjoying the fresh tomatos and greens, instead of sauce and meat. It makes for a much lighter pizza. I also added goat cheese, mozzarella, chives and pesto.
The mozzarella burned a bit. I think I might just do all goat next time.
Here we have some cookies, a whole lot of cookies. Oatmeal Raisin (which HH made), Ginger and Carob Chip. Carob Chip, you ask? It was supposed to be Chocolate Chip but I decided to try something different and I am glad I did! They are awesome! Much better than choco-chip. I had never heard of Carob before but I found them in the store (kinda pricey) and I had to try them.
This was an interesting recipe from our “Baking” book: Welsh Clay Pot Loaves. Typical bread recipe but with a lot of herbs. I used chives, sage, parsley and garlic. Clay pots are really cheap, so if you eff up, like I did, no biggie. I’m still going to try and salvage the pots, but I have extras just in case. I think I need to “cure” the pots, like I did with the pizza stone. Any suggestions?
I actually made butter earlier in the week but I felt the need to add it here. It came out pretty well. I just need to figure out how to keep it a bit softer. After it had been refrigerated, it got pretty hard. Not stick-butter hard but “cut-with-a-knife-and-it-crumbles-apart” hard. Any suggestions?
