Extra Strong!

Just a quick note, re the “Extra Strong” Canadian flour from Waitrose. Was throwing together some dough for a small loaf, not really concentrating*, and ended up with a loose, but only slightly too sticky dough. Subsequently peered at the water jug and realised that I’d used it all, so was consequently working with 100% hydration, and the dough wasn’t pouring off the bench. In fact it made a rather tasty loaf with more oven spring and bigger holes than usual.

Must try this again. Soon.

*I don’t have a solution to insomnia, but will sometimes while away the hours by making bread, rather than just lying awake in bed feeling sorry for myself. The results are sometimes erratic when I’m not awake as I think.
