Crunchy, crusty,...

| No Comments
IMGP1666.jpgI did another bake run with my sourdough starter and made some change to the ingredients list. This time I used Quinoa seeds, whole wheat, rye and bread flour.

Ingredients (Guidelines):
3 cups King Arthur Whole Wheat Flour
2 cups King Arthur Medium Rye Flour
1 ½ cups King Arthur Bread Flour
IMGP1665.jpg2 ½ cups Quinoa seeds (dry) - soaked overnight
1 tbsp caraway seeds, anise
2 tbsp fennel
½ tbsp coriander
2 tbsp salt

Sourdough starter to make a nice smooth dough.
Leaven for about 1½ hours and bake for about 1½ hours.

The crunchy crust was amazing with a nice chewy inside, and the Quinoa tastes great! Compared to millet I used previously this is my current favorite.

Transit of Venus.

Transit_of_Venus.jpgOf course. This was actually very cool.
I made a solar filter out of a thermal blanket (2 layers, to be exact) and stretched it over the hood of my zoom lens. I didn't expect it to work that well, so that I could even see sunspots. But I took several pictures and stacked them together (left image). Another one shortly after first contact (below).

This one set below is cool, historically. The left one was taken December 1941 by Jack Delano for the Farm Security Administration. I found it on Shorpy.com and wanted to see how this place looks today. Unfortunately it was late afternoon so the light wasn't the best.
