Hello fermenting friday friends
Essene bread and cookies are delicious caramelised goodness. It is hard to believe that all you have to do is soak some grains, wait a few days until they sprout some tails, blend, cook, voila.
The attached recipe is a little different so feel free to try that one, but the one I know doesn't add sourdough starter ... you just blend and bake. Note: 3 cups = 600g & 200F is 95C (very important!)
So - interested? Yippee. You can get wheat/rye/speltberries/groats/any wholegrains galore from Friends of the Earth, Replenish, Ceres, Plump and other good places (not very helpful is it).
Everyone is welcome to come along with any stage of the essene bread process: dry grains, soaked & sprouted grains, ready to cook, cooked, with or without starter, raisins or herbs. YUM YUM YUM.
December 2nd (yo it's a Friday) @ 2pm, (note you may want to start soaking Nov 28/29)Kate's place - 10 River St, Newport
RSVP is useful to Kate firstname.lastname@example.org but places aren't limited, more = merry
