IRISH SODA BREAD

Ingredients:

    1 1/2 cups (360 ml) plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened soymilk
    1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons vinegar4 cups (960 ml) whole-wheat pastry flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1 teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees (Gas Mark 3) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the soymilk and vinegar in a small bowl and set it aside.
  3. Sift the pastry flour, baking soda, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Form a well in the center, and add the soured soymilk, stirring with a large spoon until the mixture forms a dough firm enough to shape into a ball.
  4. Place the dough on the parchment paper and form into a circle 8 inches in diameter and about 1 1/2 inches (3.5 cm) thick. Using a knife, make cuts into the bread about 1/2 inch deep. These cuts will make it easier to break the baked bread into portions.
  5. Bake the bread 40 to 45 minutes or until the bread forms a golden brown, firm top and bottom crust. Serve immediately or warm gently to serve later.dsc02194

Fermentation Status: 5 Brews of Kombucha, Kimchee, Pickled Veggies & 3 loafs of Sourdough Bread

To start with, we have four jars of Kombucha fermenting and waiting to be bottled and put into the fridge.

Next, we have out big monster jar of continuous brew of Kombucha. The jar we purchased at Happy Herbalist, which has tons of supplies for natural healing.

I, personally, like to drink Kombucha this way….natural, room-temperature and right from the scoby.

We are making our own Kimchee and Pickled Veggies. I gave on some Kimchee to Mariana, Grandma and put some in Shon’s lunch. I refrigerated some of the Pickled Vegetables to have as a snack throughout the day and will continue to ferment the rest of them for another day or so.

Now, my latest fermentation, Sourdough Bread. The picture below shows the “sponge” stage of the fermentation process. I still have to add 2 cups of flour, let rise and kneed. The process of making the sourdough “starter” is easy, click here to find out how.

Los and lots of ecosystems are growing in my kitchen!!!
