No, this is not gluten free bread.
Instead, this is me testing my End of the World supplies. Like, if you’re storing them? Please check to make sure you know how to use them or they’re useless to you in an emergency!
In this case I have wheat berries and a wheat grinder.
So I needed a bread recipe.
But I do this in stages. I don’t go full bore on grinding my wheat flour right away. If the recipe works then, I won’t know if it’s the recipe, my grinding, the yeast, the room temperature or what that didn’t work.
Straightforward, no kneading.
Lots of notes explaining what to do when things inevitably go wrong.
Overall, it was a success.
The house was too cold – it barely rose until my husband thought to put it next to the register in the bathroom.
But it tasted fantastic!
Yes, I know it’ll make me sick to eat it, but if the world has ended GF flour is going to be hard to get. And wheat berries last FOREVER practically.
The Dutch oven is red, and you can see that it darkened to an alarming dark red shade. But when it cooled it was fine. Here’s the first peak:
I should have taken a photo from the side! But I wanted to show the golden crust, and that’s what I took. I didn’t even take photos of slices, which is sad.
But it’s very dense, and only a few inches thick.
So, we’ll try again!
