I kinda do the opposite of what you do. I use the bread machine
extensivly to simply avoid kneeding by hand. I'll make about 5 loaves
on avergae on a sunday afternoon. Xmass week this year, I made 8 loaves
and 15 dozen cookies on a sunday afternoon, Last year xmass week I made
20 loaves of bread on a sunday afternoon. (we do a -exchange- at work).
I remove the dough before the end of the manual cycle, after about 25
minutes on my machines, move it to a bowl, and start the next. Then
I do the punch down, and loaf shaping into the final shape when the
next dough is ready.
I especially like using the bread machine to cream the butter and
blend in the sugar for many cookie recipts. When I'm done using my
machine as a mixer, I bake one final loaf in it, to ease cleanup. After
cookies, the loaf has a super hard, crunchy, and sweet crust. yummm.
I want to try making potato (or potatoe) and chestnut flour. I'm
thining about using a dehydrator to dry the chestnuts or potatos then
my grain mill. Does anybody have any ideas, or suggestions ??
) or does anybodu know how to make potato flour (
