|Freshly planted herb pots. Too soon to harvest|
In past years, it has been my habit to bring in a few herbs and keep them in the house during the winter for as long as they will live. I've been pretty lucky with my thyme and rosemary in particular. Some rosemary plants have overwintered twice for me, but the thyme generally dies off by January or February.
1/2 cup cool water
1/4 teaspoon instant yeast
all of the starter
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons potato flour or instant mashed potato flakes
1/3 cup mashed, roasted garlic cloves
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
2 cups bread Flour
Change to a dough hook and mix until you’ve formed a soft dough, then knead for 6 to 8 minutes, until the dough is smooth and springy.
Yield: 2 loaves, 8 slices each.
