hi im Tricia an organic gardener
i grow organically for a healthy and safe food supply
for clean and sustainable environment
for and enjoyable and rewarding experience
most people don't have time to make their own bread
but with this "Breville" Custom Loaf, it makes it simple
today we're going to be making sprouted wheat bread
sprouted wheat bread is nutritious and has a lower glycemic index then even
whole wheat bread
the recipe I'm using calls for
one and a quarter cups warm water
two tablespoons active dry yeast
one-quarter cup olive oil
one-quarter cup honey
one-and-a-half teaspoons of salt
and one cup of sprouted grains
along with two caps of sprouted wheat flour
and two cups of organic bread flour
you can buy sprouted wheat flour or you can make your own
to make your own start with one and a third cups of wheat berries
one cup of wheat berries will yield one and a half cups of flour
for my recipe i need two cups of sprouted wheat flour
rinse the seeds a couple of times skim off any floating debris you see and then
fill the bowl and let it sit over night
in the morning youll see some bubbles on top
that means the wheat is beginning to sprout the wheat should have little tiny
sprouts this is a minimally sprouted wheat
rinse your minimally sprouted wheat thoroughly
next we're gonna dehydrate the wheat
spread your wheat
on a dehydrating tray up to about an ich thick
dehydrate at a hundred to a hundred and ten degrees fahrenheit until the wheat
berries are dry
while the sprouts a dehydrating i'm going to start another batch of sprouts since my
recipe calls for fresh sprouts as well
blend one cup of your wet sprouted wheat
along with one and a quarter cups of warm water
blend until you get a fairly smooth puree
once your grain is dry
you wanna mill it
make sure it is milled finely if it is too course you could damage the pan
of your bread maker
remove the bread pan from your Breville bread maker and install the paddle in the
upright position
put the ingredients in the bread pan in this order
first your water sprouted grain puree
a quarter cup of honey
a quarter cup of olive oil
two cups of sprouted wheat flour
one-and-a-half teaspoons of salt and then you're active dry yeast
now just put the bread pan back in the bread maker
and make sure that it's properly seated
on the shaft
i'll be using the whole wheat bread setting for a two point five pound loaf on
the bread maker
this has a preheat option that allows the sprouted wheat flour to fully absorb
the liquid
hit start and wait until the first knead cycle for the last step
this bread maker has a special holder so that you can add nuts and other mixings
automatically to your bread
once the bread maker starts kneading just add the two cups of bread flour once youve
added the bread flour your bread maker will do the rest
it beeps when it's finished and it switches to a keep warm setting
it smells soooo good!
lets try some
wholesome whole wheat bread
you can do it and you can grow organic for life!
