The loaves are formed, the slits are cut, and they are making their final rise. Gave the first rise 2 hours (til it doubled). Punched it down. 45 minutes later it had ballooned a bit more. Rolled it out. Rolled it up into loaves. Layed em on the cornmeal covered pizza peel. Cut my 1/4 inch deep diagonal slits. Misted with water. Covered with an elevated moist towel. Now the long wait for the final rise, and into the humpty oven. [p]I have a good feeling about this one. Dr. Chicken, although quite ill, has been kind enough to share his expertise via email!!
Thanks y'all for walking me thru this.[p]NB
