Since 2017

I have always been in kitchen since age 5. I am driven and motivated by organic foods and processing at home. Baking at age 11 with breads this appeal was to artistry and creative. Like a puzzle each piece was amazing and addictive. Preventive health impact was compelling and knowledge was satisfying but there was science to a scale that motivates for more knowledge. Books Stacked constantly!

This is not a complete profile to the MAX .
I have done baking with this 6 loaves over 3 bakes all in Rye. I have done 4 English Muffins bakes.. pizzas and crackers..It is typical in prior to feeding its flavor is acidic and sour then becoming a milky sweet with slightly acidic tone. I develop Rye from Max three days prior to bake for Muffins 24 hours prior to bake. I maintain in cool until process for baking.

This is for my legacy of farm to kitchen journeys. I use Hudson Valley Farms for 90% of all foods brought into the home for the last two decades. I believe this is a future living experience exploring natural leavening and cultivating for organic goodness and important healthy lifestyle.
