The first week of June, how did that happen?
And 2 weeks until the first Farmers Market in our town.
I am still working on bread recipes, cause lets face it, I am not going to have anything ready from the garden.
Only a row of spinach planted so far!
This weekend I tested out English Muffins.
I found a simple, yet tastey recipe.
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter (melted)
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons sugar
3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons dry yeast.
cornmeal for dusting the dough
I mixed mine in my bread machine on the yeast cycle.
When the timer went off, letting me know the dough was ready, I dumped the mixture on my counter, that was lightly dusted with cornmeal.
I rolled the dough out to a 1 inch thickness and used my sandwich cutter to cut out circles.
You need to put the circles on a baking sheet, cover, and let rise for 20 minutes.
They get nice and poofy!
On a hot griddle, preheated to 350 F. you can begin cooking your muffins.
They take 6 to 7 minutes per side to cook.
They brown up nice!
They puff up even nicer!
I smooshed some of mine because I thought they wouldn't fit into my toaster.
I got a dozen muffins out of this batch!
And they were delicious!
I am off to the farm today to finally plant the rest of my garden!
I think its going to be a little muddy, but the stuff HAS to go in the ground today!
More rain expected from Wednesday thru the weekend!
Oh this darn weather!
