Wordless Wednesday: Tartine Walnut Bread
summary: variation on Chad Robertson's Tartine Basic Country Loaf (along with toasted walnuts and some malted rye chops, we added whole wheat, unbleached all-purpose, and rye flours) risen with Jane Mason natural starter (whole-wheat) bubbling happily since July 2017; great bread; great toast; terrific for the best Reubenesque sandwiches; the only thing wrong with this bread is that it’s all gone already; a Wordless Wednesday post;
