Hello again.

Just saying hi.  I've not stopped baking, part of the German community, very warmed to be taken in by a pretty wonderful group of people.  Just a few.  Be well.

Hello! Glad to see you're still baking.

That's a marvelous assortment of breads. Can you list what they are? I might like to try making some them myself.

Thanks!  You bet, starting from the top:

1.  A Drittelsbrot, adapted from the book Brotland Deutschland.  This one was done in two stages, is 35% "T 1150" (from Central Millling - it's their medium rye at 1.15% ash), 30% (middle-fine) cracked spelt and 35% "T 1050", also from Central Milling.  Rolled in a mix of oatmeal and whole rye flour.

2. Sorry, I forgot! Most likely a Weizenmischbrot of some sort.

3.  A Hünsrucker Bauerbrot, from Brotdoc´s Der Brotdoc: Heimatbrote: Traditionsreiche Brote aus dem eigenen Ofen. Mit Sauerteig, Vorteig & Co. (highly recommended.  In German, but even with basic German, quite easy to follow).

4.  Berches, Heimatebrote book.

5.  Going back to a family Christmas up north so going on memory, but the assortment, clockwise from top, is I believe:  Schwarzbrot, Münchener Hausbrot, Doppelback, and in the middle, Bergersteigerbrot.  All of these come from Brotdoc's book (noticing a pattern?).

6.  Bottom photo, left, Friesisches Weissbrot.  Right, Sonnenblumen-Schrotbrot (ahem.  Björn´s book).

There are so many I really love.  This is another one, his Saftiges Graubrot.

Good to see you.  My very best to you and everyone.

This is a great variety of bread. They all look amazing. Where did you get the book Brotland Deutschland? It seems that it is sold out every or not published anymore?

Thanks.  I kept my eyes out for a long time - all I kept seeing is Band 3 for the longest time but as soon as I saw it - sorry, can't remember the site - I leapt.  Sad it went out of print.
