See, I told you.

Just before we bin it, as it's impossible to cut, here it is in all its building brick glory. Actually the flavour was quite nice. (I did manage to rip a bit off while it was still warm.) However, once it cooled, there was no slicing it with anything less than a chainsaw.

To cheer myself up I bought a big bag of organic beef bones at the market and am making a huge pot of beef stock in the new stockpot.

Ouch. That sourdough looks like a problem. Sorry I can't offer any advice :( But the stock looks great and in this rainy weather .....

Awww! Sorry to hear the sour dough didn't want to work :( But like all true troopers, I'm sure that this not-bread of yours will only inspire a great success!

I can't find the link at the moment (study break) but I think Clotilde over at Chocolate and Zucchini had a post about sourdough starters awhile ago...might be worth a read?

hi there... aaah the bread looks nice and lovely. would you be able to convert it into bread crumbs or croutons?

the stock looks great... what will you be using it for?

HI Deb and Ellie

Yes, very sad, the old sourdough. I did think about croutons, but I think it might have broken the KitchenAid. They haven't invented an attachment that strong yet.

The stock however was agreat success. Shortly I will be posting the resulting beef and veg and bean soup, together with a much more successful loaf.

Thanks for visiting.
