The Background Story
This recipe is a little more advanced. You probably need a little more experience working with dough to use this recipe. (It gets easier though.)
2015 is the first time we tried this ... it was a failure the first time (lacked taste, a little pinkish in colour ... but not worth doing.
The second time it was flavour rich - perhaps a little too tangy. That is the natural taste of berries. We, in our yard, have mixed varieties. Some are VERY tart! I will try this recipe again when there are enough berries in our little bush.
This recipe uses the entire berry; juice, fiber AND seeds. The seed produces a nice little nutty texture to the loaf. Nothing of this spectacular berry is thrown away ... and this recipe uses an abundance of berries!
I refrigerated the bread the day after baking (to prevent flavour changes and early molding - ). Toasting brought this bread alive!
As to this recipe itself, we are just sharing the journey. You can enjoy (or not) the experience and even try it yourself - maybe you'll even find the best balance (or your own best balance) before we find ours. This version uses a little less yeast and contains the reminder to add a little more sugar if the berries are particularly tangy.
This bread is peculiar ... it's entirely different but ... uses a GREAT fruit! It was tried as a grilled cheese. Some may like it but ... to weird, even for me. With simple butter, this bread is overpoweringly tangy. Again, "pretty weird".
Cold with cold cheese is nice ... so someone said, "im gong to toast it and have it with peanut butter."
That was genius. I never liked the Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich. Too sweet for me but this bread, lightly toasted, some butter and peanut butter and you've got the fruity flavour of the raspberry with lightly salted, natural peanut butter (and "no added sugar"). It was quite beautiful!.
It made a reasonably nice deli sandwich of mustard, lettuce and dried beef salami.
An Eastern-Canadian treat, Maple Butter, is also quite excellent with this bread. Again, it seems this bread is really nice (and a bit nicer, even) lightly toasted - with many garnishes.
The bread holds its decidedly pink hue. The crust frames the moist berry bread slices with it's decisive tan characteristic. It's like a painting.
