So Leslie and I dinghied over to their boat with flour in hand. They supplied all the other ingredients, so nice of them!
Their lovely boat Persephone - a beautiful Hallberg Rassy I believe.
Karen helping us aboard.
We got right to "work". They are excellent instructors! We each made one loaf. Learned a few things. I don't have a thermometer on board - they use a digital one to measure the temp of the milk. I've been using water for my recipe and I've had it a bit too warm.
Also learned that I'm adding too much flour when kneading and (according to Jerry) I'm kneading with too much "aggression"!
Kneading for 10 minutes total.
And before we knew it, we had three lovely balls of dough. This was alot of fun! Cruisers are so helpful!
And this is THE BEST BREAD EVER! Seriously good. Many thanks to Karen and Jerry for a great morning lesson. I'll include the recipe at the bottom of the post.
And after some more boat chores in the afternoon, we went ashore for the nightly cruiser get-together.
Karen from Persephone, Chris (don't know the boat name) and John from Sam the Skull played for us - what a great treat! I'll upload a short video when we have stronger internet.
