Crafting On

I'm working on the Hugo Poncho, still, and have cast on for a Child Surprise Jacket, but really. Who wants to see a sweater with just a few rows done or a really long turtleneck?  Let's focus on this panettone.  I made it this past Sunday using this recipe.  I hadn't made any in, oh, eight or nine years.  I think making panettone is rather like a crafting project.  There is the tedious folding down of the paper bag, and the setting of the sponge, and wondering how it will all come out during the four to six hours of rising.

These did beautifully, though I recommend a small piece of cardboard at the bottom of the bag, not unlike commercially produced panettone.  They brown too much on the bottom without it.  And I do wonder how orange extract would enhance it.  There are more complicated recipes out there, but this is fairly simple and satisfies my tastes just fine.  The loaves are pretty good size, though the recipes call thems small.  I used conventional paper lunch sacks (oh, and bread flour).  And yes, those are chocolate chips, at Mike's request.

Bread in a Bag

Wasn't this better than knitting, just for once? The only sad part is that I cannot send you all some. Well, I could, but there would be mutiny.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
