Pane Toscana (With Green Olives)
And we are back!
Ingredients: Water, Bread Flour, Whole Wheat Flour, Gluten, Yeast, Sugar, and Salt. (NO OLIVES!!)
This is another Country Bread made with a starter. I decided to follow the variation suggested to add green olives to the dough. I ended up nearly gagging and throwing the whole loaf away. My roommates tried to say it was okay, but I got rid of it. Next time I attempt to make Pane Toscana I will NOT be adding olives to it. This is now strike two for me in the olive in bread department, I tried it, but it is certainly not my thing.
This week has been rather crazy. Between switching to a new placement in student teaching, camping, dancing, and cleaning I have just had just enough time to fit a little bread baking into my schedule. Yes, yes, I know some of you have commented that I am getting behind, but trust me, we are just in February and we have another 10 months and 254 breads to go, we are not behind yet.
