    it as I m sure I ll find a use for the left overs in fact see the bottom of this blog post for an offer So lets get going What you need Small round tins with clear lids preferably with screw tops Super glue Small magnets A4 paper to make labels with a printer or alternatively hand write your labels Clear Fablon or alternatively you could use sticky tape of the magic variety Cutting mat knife and metal ruler A pair of scissors is also handy I initially used a glue gun but all the magnets came unstuck after a week So after a few tests with other glues I found that super glue gave the best results Step One Take all the lids off your tins and give both the lids and bases a good wipe clean inside and out Then line the tin bases up with their bottoms in the air Step Two Check your magnets on your fridge to see which side needs to be glued the magnets I have only stick to the fridge on one side so I had to find out which side this was otherwise I d end up with tins that would just fall to the floor Then pair off each tin with a set of magnets so each is ready to stick as you have to work quickly with super glue Through experimentation I found that three of my magnets will stick a tin full of spices to my fridge well you may have to experiment a little depending on the strength of your magnets Step Three With the super glue in hand draw three circles where you want the magnets to go onto the bottom of each tin then quickly and firmly press your three magnets in place With the lids off its easier to push from the inside of the tins to make sure the magnets adhere properly and that the glue is evenly squished Again you may need to experiment with the magnets you use as you may need to use more or less to get your tins to stick to the fridge without sliding Step Four Make some lovely labels apologies for the blurry pic so you know what each tin contains I created mine using Adobe Illustrator and printed them onto white A4 paper then cut them out I like my labels to be plain and functional so they may look quite boring but to me readability is key I then cut strips of clear Fablon approx 3 5mm larger than the labels on all sides Sticking the labels to the Fablon can be a bit fiddly so it helps to peel off about a cm of the backing strip at one end and fold this down then align the label where you want it to be and with that end stuck down it s easier to peel away the rest of the backing paper and know that your label will stay pretty much in

  • Baking Success! | Milomade
    new sourdough starter just wholemeal flour and water and nurtured and fed it every day for a week until it got really frothy and bubbly It was fermenting away quite nicely so I decided it was time to bake a loaf The first loaf I made was super but incredibly small as I deliberately started off with small quantities so as not to fall into the same trap as last year My first loaf I thought I was onto a winner again but decided to double the quantities of my starter and increase the quantities within my recipe and this is when it all went wrong Last week I baked a loaf every day but what came out of the oven were more akin to bricks than bread and I just couldn t understand what was going wrong We have an unbelievable cold kitchen and I thought this was definitely playing a part Maybe i wasn t kneading the dough enough or maybe I was kneading it too much I started off using Mr Kenwood so after a few disaster loaves I thought I would give hand kneading a go I still got bricks though So Maybe it was my maths never been good at counting and my quantities So I did some online research and found a few folk using a 1 2 3 method one part starter 2 parts water and three parts flour so I thought I d try this and see if it worked It didn t I stupidly decided to mix this idea with a no knead method I d also seen online and I think this was the reason for my downfall But I did think this attempt was the most success I d had all week as the bread did rise and was less brick like and looked more like a loaf It was full of holes though and a bit of a flying crust something you often get when you ve not kneaded the bread properly So it was time to consult the expert a friend of mine who lives a few villages away who used to be a baker He challenged me to a bake off and I went round to his on Friday to go through the basics of bread making quantities mixing kneading rising etc And came home with a piece of linen cloth a plastic scraper and a beautiful loaf he d baked and a head full of enthusiasm So today I got up early and mixed up my ingredients to make a dough and instead of bunging in all the quantities required I mixed together the flour and the starter and gradually added the water until I thought I had the right consistency I only added my salt after kneading the dough for a while as he had done What I was doing wrong last week was adding everything at once and then having to compensate for a very wet dough by continually adding more flour and

    Sale Sea Glass Sewing Silver Social Social Media Spoons Stationery Stocking Fillers Studio Tax Textures Trade Shows Travel TTC Pregnancy Twitter Upcycling Valentines Gift Vintage Website Wholesale Windchime Winter Warmth 2015 Work In Progress Bread with no yeast 14th July 2009 I ve been reading up about sourdough bread again recently which is bread made with naturally occurring yeast rather than the stuff you get in a packet from the supermarket I ve been wanting to succeed with this for a long time and have followed a few recipes in books and from friends but nothing has worked in the past and it all seemed like too much hard work Then I bought Hugh s latest book on bread and followed the recipe in there and I m really pleased with the results Basically I ve been tending to my sourdough starter all week feeding it and whisking it and making sure it s fermenting and on top form This is what the sourdough starter looks like naturally fermented stuff made from just flour and water a bit pongy but you get used to that Last night I made my sponge where I mixed half of the sourdough starter with water and flour and left it to bubble away over night This morning I mixed in more flour and some salt and mixed it up until I got a nice sticky dough It was then down to kneading the dough until it was smooth and elastic I left most of the hard work to Mr Kenwood and then finished it off myself and placed it in a clean bowl to rise And boy did it rise It was then divided into three and formed into three loaves and these were left to rise again These also did well so I was feeling really optimistic at this point and very excited I then transferred each to a baking tray and baked them individually in the oven one after the other our oven is an ancient heap of crap This is the first loaf that came out And it tasted delicious This is the first loaf of bread I ve ever made that I ve been totally satisfied with and I can t wait to make some more My sourdough starter has been moved to the fridge for a day or two so I don t have to feed it everyday I ll get it out again soon and re awaken it and make another three loaves and long may the habit continue no more supermarket crap full of additives and chemicals for us anymore we eating homemade from now on You may also like to read the following related posts Making Focaccia Inspiration Crust Patterns The 5 2 Diet who s with me New Year New Start Posted in Life the universe and everything Tagged Baking 2 comments on Bread with no yeast Colleen 9 November 2012 at 1 01 am Hi This really intrigues me as I LOVE baking bread
