This project was a fascinating one. Everyone has come up with amazing, unique and, often beautiful, containers that I would love to eat. Sadly in spite of multiple attempts I don't have a finished product to share. But I will... Soft pretzel bowls are going to happen and I'm getting close. Maybe next month?
Here are miscellaneous pictures of my process thus far with descriptions as I'm short on time.
Right: Roasted Beets and Asparagus with Diced Horseradish Cheese
Left: Mushrooms in a Sherry-Paprika Sauce with Parsley (for color)
The yeast was bubbly...a good start.
Too dry...Add more buttermilk.
The dough isn't that smooth but it will do. I'm trying to learn the mantra
don't let the perfect get in the way of the good.
It doubled. Score.
The dough rolled out and cut into circles.
They browned much better than the previous batch and yet were still a touch too crisp.
Midnight last night. Hello, disaster. I told myself tomorrow is a new day and went to bed
once the pan was soaking. The gray cloud is still following me around today thought...
must see struggles as opportunities and continue to move forward.
