Woo Hoo! I love our new camera! Joe (only half joking) observed that it is going to start taking an extra half hour before meals so that i can take all the pictures i want. We had been looking for a while at getting the Cannon sx1, but Joe found a great deal for our T1i on Slickdeals.
The rye bread did not come out quite like i expected, but it is still good. I ended up using ‘regular’ rye flour and i think this had a big impact on the final product. Being new to Boston/ Cambridge, i have not quite. Still, I was glad to make two loaves this week. I froze the pretty, spiral loaf (wrapped in aluminum foil and bundled in two plastic grocery bags) after letting it cool completely. It had been baked an a loaf pan and was perfectly peaked over the rim.
The second loaf I made marbled, freestanding on a baking sheet with two little rolls (photo above). I was worried that the rolls (2 of the 12 pieces for the marbled loaf) would be overdone when i cooked them the same time as the loaf, but as you can see they came out great! For fun, i did one with and one without egg wash. The wash made a big difference. Though they both taste good, the one without just looks really dry and stale. Neither one lasted long. They were both eaten before they got a chance to cool.
BTW: this bread made some delicious grilled (Vermont cheddar) cheese with onion…
