And hike I did. Very nice in the sun, quite chilly in the shadow.
There’s a bit of a moral dilemma this morning. I’d like to take the bike for a spin. The sun is shining. But, still -3 C outside.
Cycling is no fun if you alternate sweating with freezing.
Compromise with a hike?
No 9.2021 #sourdough is quite different. The difference started with me grabbing the wrong organic wholemeal flour in the supermarket. Wheat instead of rye.
Colour and texture of the crust were also different. But that might have been my impatience which shortened fermentation.
Taste is great though.
Madness, same as yesterday, just in the north of #cologne instead of the south. Still the #rhine though
One of our Christmas traditions has been to visit various churches in Cologne during Advent and the time to Candlemas to see the Nativities 1.
In years past this “hike” was augmented with a Weihnachtsmarkt visit and some Glühwein.
This year 2, of course, we didn’t.
Today, on a walk in one of the Veedel 3 we don’t normally visit, we went into a new-gothic church and found this fairly modern and somewhat naive nativity.
Update on No 3.2021.
Quite good crust and open crumb. The crust was quite a bit thinner than on the #sourdough, the crumb a lot softer.
Good loaf though.
