Sorry for my little while of absence – been adapting to Finland. I’ve been walking in the depths of forest enjoying the lack of people. Things are great here; dogs, cats, bunnies and the eagle owl are all doing just fine.
Of course I’ve already baked couple of breads as well. They’ve been ok, though I’ve a feeling that salt is saltier here. Well, it might be more than a hunch, since I did find out that the salt I’ve been using is actually grinded sea salt… That could explain it.
Still, baking here is such a luxury. Mother has a nice wood fired baking oven and it’s so cool to be able to bake bread there. It’s difficult, though, since I didn’t find anything to measure the oven temperature with. Well, I was lucky and it did turn out to look and taste quite good. Next time I’ll tuck it in just a bit earlier, also right before the fire has gone out.
If one is as imaginative as I am – doesn’t it look like a heart on top of the bread? Or maybe it’s just me being all-happy having baked a bread in a real oven. Oh well, I’ll be posting more oven breads soon.
