Is it no knead? Razor cuts look great. Very rustic.

Yes it is no knead.  Just 4 fold and stretches during first 2 1/2 hours of the process followed by a bulk fermentation and then a second proofing.

After the 3 weeks of effort, the loaf today finally came out perfect! 
 didn't completely follow the method Chef Jacob did in the video (just because my flat mate left the kitchen in a mess and I didn't want to clean it up) but I'm really satisfied with the taste! I sure hope that I can made the ball shaped one soon.

Hi, in the Three mother sauces video, you covered all the best different ways to Sauce making. All the sauces where salty, when creating sweet sauces, such as coconut sauce, mango or even swwet lemon. What would be my best thikener agent? Can i apply any of this techniques or that would be a whole different process?

Ok so things have been pretty quit here...so thought I would share some Christmas makings for you all.

The last couple of months I have been smoking turkeys (whole and breast), making a variiy of sausages (breakfast, Italian,Swiss,Bratwurst and hot links), making tamales ( cheese and green chile,as well as  pork and chicken).

I still have to smoke some pork bellies for bacon and they are in the works now.

All this to mail out as my Christmas presents to friends and family.

Lot of work, but satisfying to me and well those that recieve.

Hey is there a on line calculater for converting pounds in to grams, plus figuring the percentage of salts cure, sugar and ppm. The site i have been using is down, and not sure when it or if it will be back.

The site i used to use is diggingdogfarm.com.

I use it for my brines and making bacon cure.

I heard of some other sites which had something similar but I sure can't find them now.

Thanks kit

The last four weeks, all but one of my loaves of "English-Muffin" Bread have turned out like this:

Prior to that, I hadn't had any trouble and I have not (knowingly) changed any ingredients, procedures or equipment. 

Why is this happening and how can I prevent it? Thanks.

When I was in Honduras and had made a side trip to Guatemala, I found a coffee jelly/jam that I eventually used for a new recipe I developed. Now that I'm back in the States, I can't get that jelly any more, so I have been looking into making some myself.
