As month 3 comes to a close I feel pretty good about what I was able to accomplish. I made a lot of bread and towards the end really felt like I was getting the hang of it all. There were some problems I ran into with the starter and shaping the loaves but I feel like I was able to overcome most of the challenges. There were some things that I didn’t get a chance to do but think I’ll still try. Namely – I didn’t get to try baking bread in my outdoor grill. Oh well – I can always still do that.
Im glad I used a couple of different resources to learn about making bread though. By using both books I was able to get two different perspectives on baking which was helpful when I was running into issues. I also spent a fair amount of time watching YouTube videos on shaping loaves when I was having issues doing that.
At any rate – I really enjoyed learning how to bake bread and I think it’s something I’ll continue to do going forward.
