Caught out (Nearly!)

I had a call from Oats yesterday afternoon, they  wanted a Lentil and Turmeric Sourdough, something I hadn't done for 6 months. After a quick check to make sure I had lentils, and a brief thank you to my guardian angel for prompting me to refresh the starters yesterday, we were good to go.

I had enough for two loaves so that meant one for me!

It's quite a complicated recipe, involving an autolyse and a double knead, but I had it in the tins for an overnight prove by 1800.

When it emerged next morning it was well risen, and I let it warm up as the oven did. A gentle cut on the best looking one would let the steam out as it cooked.

It had 40 minutes, the first 20 with steam, and was ready with the rest of the order.

I cut mine and it had an acceptable crumb.

and the Turmeric gave it a tinge. You could just taste it, just enough to know it was there and the lentils gave it a moist texture. I'd better get some more lentils in.
