Is this off subject.....
I know some of you are bread bakers and thought I would share something new I am playing with. The raisin thread made me think of sharing this.
I am using fruit (I started with raisins) to make my own water yeast......It is basically a fermentation of some kind of fruit or veggie that allows you to use it in bread making ....a little like sourdough.
I have tried several fruits, apple skins and cores. raisins, cranberry, strawberry. Right now I have some rice working. It has been a fun experiment and I am enjoying it so if you ever want to try a fruit water yeast, something you might want to explore.
