Tonight's effort - Pure cream, coconut oil and salt. 

Cant wait to try out some more breads, I have seen a great recipe I would like to try from Facebook which consists mainly of seeds. I will have to be organised to do that one though as I have just learned that I should be soaking seeds and nuts.... I had been making a really yummy fresh muesli consisting of Green apple, dates, coconut and almonds but found I was feeling bloated until I found literature on soaking nuts and it has cured it!

Hehe - if I had a male version I wouldn't need a Thermomix, Andy. :)

Oh that Liz - rubbing it in like that.  Not only does she have the kitchen wiz - but it's easy to clean... oh... hang on.... my Rozie has one of those.  She calls him Andy.  ;-)

You rinse by adding chilled water twice, then giving it a wizz, for a few seconds. Then you drain the water using the little basket that acts as a sieve. Everything washes so easily, a min in hot soapy water...

Lucky you! I have been eyeing it but it is way beyond my means or should I say down the bottom of my spending priority list after a few considerations (maybe to console me). For me the idea after seeing my last electricity bill (very depressive) is to be able to do as much as possible without using electricity with as little effort as possible. How do you rinse your butter in the thermomix and how much washing up after you transfer your butter in a container to store?

I have just been blessed with a Thermomix for Christmas - making butter - 5 mins... I make one batch that lasts the fortnight in the fridge. I do love my Thermomix (expensive machine but I am cooking so many things so easily). Making butter, tomato sauce, mayonnaise, bread, pizza base, etc ...

I like your experimenting!  I'm adding chia seeds to the top of mine now. It looks purdee.

This one was a mixture of both white and wholemeal kailla flour with linseed, sun flour and chia seeds. Still experimenting.

Looks great Valerie, is the sourdough wholemeal?

Great :D

I remember doing this when this kids were little (during the time I used to make my own bread probably). Thank you for the great little sensible video.
