All about bread

Richard, the producer is local to me - it's cheaper to buy it from their online shop:

OR make your own?

Hope this helps

Jelly pectin powder I presume from most supermarkets

Powdered ascorbic acid Just vit.C powder ?

Diastatic malt powder from any decent home brew outlet?

I know its optional but what the hell is non instant milk powder?

Hi all,
Sorry I've been off forum for a while, things have been very very busy!!
I think I started something in the UK when I started selling improvers, lots of comments for and against and lots of people copying my ideas!!!! Anyway its all good fun and keeps me out of mischief, a bit!!
Don't forget that all improvers are different, even though they may have the same name, cheaper ones usually are 'cheaper', think of the difference between a bargain supermarket loaf and a quality high street bakers loaf.
Anyway, I'm still waiting for my friend (and SMF member) to make me sausages! home made sausages in home made toast sounds delicious!!

Sorry if this is a plug but you need any improvers etc we have a xmas sale on also any order over �10 gets you a free novelty gift, my novelty gifts always put a smile on customers faces!!!!!! be quick though to get your order before xmas.

Also remember that we are always here to answer any bread questions, just email me and I'll help if I can, however most members on here now know a thing or two about breadmaking!!
Merry Christmas

Mike,
Are they proper chewy bagels ?
I've been looking for a good recipe/ technique. As I said on a previous post mine come out like nice crusty rolls with a hole in the middle :?

LD,

What I do after the second proving is place them in simmering water, for 30 secs each side and then they go in t'oven. That gives the the chewy texture.

I saw them do this here:- (go about 25 mins into show)
