I have been experimenting with the Jim Lahy no knead bread recipe. This handsome loaf was made with 1 cup rye flour and two cups white flour. After a day and a half of “rising”, it was baked at 450 degrees for 75 minutes which yields a crust that fights back. Really delicious slathered with butter.
This was a holdover from some window mail art I have been exchanging with an artist in Greenwich Village in New York. It will be on its way shortly.
Back in the Berkshires with green hills all around ,so I mixed some greens in watercolor just as a warm-up exercise. Changing locations always seems inspiring but takes a little adjustment to using what is on hand and starting something new.
