From Bread flour to Wheatgrass

I ordered some wheat berries and well, i think i am miles away from grinding my own bread flour so it would be best to try growing some for juicing first. We'll see what happens. Just to show you, it is very easy technically but back breaking if you are as tiny as i am. 9 days is all it needs and you can harvest your wheat grass for juicing. Unlike the pulp from carrots, celery and apples the wheat grass pulp are not recyclable. I put the veggie and fruit pulp in burgers and soups, pasta sauces, pancakes etc., but the wheat grass pulp is pretty much like a dish washing scrub. Just put it in your compost bin for good measure. Here it is, i ordered mine online and you need a sturdy juicer to get most of the juice from the grass itself. Soak the seeds for 2 days, not 2 8 hours but a full 48 hours. 2 days after, put the seeds or sprouts in a 2 inch vermiculite, any tray with holes will do. 3 days later 5 days after 7 days later Harvesting time, 9-10 days once you see the second leaf showing. the juice, my nephew says "Yuck" but absolutely excellent for your health This juicer can also make great celery, carrot, apples etc., juice. Pricey but worth every drop. The effect you feel after downing this juice is amazing, it's like a green caffeine, my mother wants it everyday. Try it folks! The pancakes, the pandesal and the burgers all have pulps from the veggie and fruit juicing. Just one way of adding roughage into your diet and keeping oneself healthy, saving money as well. My nephews are downing the burgers and let me tell you this, they taste absolutely good, just add tons of minced onions and spices.

3rd Class Flour, What's It All About

For starters i cannot make this Hard Monay if i did not bring any 3rd class flour or soft weak flour to New York. Once i ran out of 3rd class and tried Cake Flour, it turned bad, do not even think of using All Purpose, it will be soft but not chewy as this one made with yes, 3rd class indeed. So third class is hard to find here in the US if you will use that term. You have to say or look for soft wheat flour, that's it, not hard wheat flour, not cake or All purpose but something in between these two. It is easy to find in the Phil., just ask your local bakery suppliers and they know it is Tercera. Tercera is not for bread, bakers use it basically for cookies, cakes and other pastries, but we bakers know how to create bread recipes using part of this flour with the bread flour or hard wheat flour. It makes a softer version of any of your fave breads, with a cheaper price tag. Plus if i own a bakery, i get to use the third class for my cakes and cookies, lowering my food cost i…

Baking Pandesal, Once Again on Proofing

I finished my one one one last August, fortunately my student arrived and made it on time before i left or went back to New York. Originally, she was asking for a September 23 to 27 date and since my flight was September 7, i had to decline her request.

I was surprised to hear from her a couple of days later when she changed her mind and decided to go home so she can catch up with me. Paid her deposit and we set the date. 3 days later, she sent me a photo of one of her cook, badly burned and all bandaged up from the hospital. Class postpone. I prayed for her that she gets well so my student can still make it. I was thinking, she would have to wait till December and well, December being a busy month, i have a feeling we will not make it and i have to return her deposit.

Praise G-d, she made it and we had a really really fun session. Her goal was to bake Pandesal and Ensaimada. She has a restaurant in Taiwan and she caters to Pinoys there selling Chicken Inasal which judging from her st…

July Session

This is the only session I had so far where i used 2 different brands of flour which is Globe by Universal Robina and Sun Moon Star by Pilmico.Now, if you have attended my class, and I know some of my former students still read my blog then you know that i preach water and adore first class flours with a high protein content. Anything that is lower than my expected level is out of the book just like this popular brand I will call Brit (not it's real name). If you know your history and you bake breads, you know what this brand is. Now, you can certainly email me so I can divulge to you in secret what this horrible I mean disappointing brand of first class is.First off, it does not deserve it's price tag. Too expensive for an over P800.00 per sack flour when a P720.00 sack can use up more water. Why is that important? Well, too long to discuss but I hope your teacher can tell you why. If not, then you went to the wrong school.So here I am, using my student's flour ( they alr…
