Today I decided to bake my sourdough in a different shape. Many years ago I invested in a baguette tray but I don't recall ever having used it - until this afternoon.
I was very pleased with the result. Hugh's recipe made two baguettes, which rose impressively and baked to a pale golden crust. The perforations on the tray gave them the authentic French look. They did burst apart in a couple of places, is probably due to my slashes not being deep enough. I'm going to remedy this by buying a artist's scalpel which I hope will make all the difference.
This, and some of my recent photos, are taken using my newly acquired Instagram app. I'm enjoying trying out the various filters. I don't have a very fancy camera, so I need all the help I can get.
