Kefir Wild Yeast ~ Nutmeg Rye Bread

"You're my only make me" My goodness, my very first kefir wild yeast project, LOVING IT ! The out come is truly satisfying and the bread smell so fresh & fruity. Of coz, there's still many more ways of making this kind of wild yeast bread. Still.... EXPLORE.... that's what is all about and the journey is the most joyous part of it ! I bet you guys should know what I'm trying to say here. No matter what's the result, WE food blogger still enjoy every moment of it. So, here's one of mine little journey.

Ingredients :
Starter Dough :
200gm   all purpose flour
50gm     rye flour
200gm   homemade Kefir drinks / enzyme juice (at room temperature)
160ml    water
2 tbsp   brown sugar
1/2 cup  raisins
1/2 cup  candied shredded nutmeg

Main Dough :
200gm   flour
1/2  tspn  salt
80gm  butter / corn oil
* extra flour for dusting

Method :
(1) combine all starter ingredients and mix to form a sticky paste, then set aside to ferment for 90 minutes.
(2) add main dough ingredients to starter dough and knead till well combined.
(3) place dough to slightly floured working table knead to smooth and then shape it into a ball.
(4) now, place dough to a floured basket and set aside to rest for another 90 minutes or till double in size. Sometimes it took longer than that (depends on room temperature).
(5) bake at preheated oven 200'C for about 30 mins, place a small cup of water into oven (to keep the moisture).

Just to make things clear, I have to explain one more time regarding the starter dough. For starter dough, I am using the kefir dirnks / enzyme juice for fermentation NOT the experimental wild yeast. Right! Do I need to explain more here? Hope not! :o) As you can see here, the bread looks really soft & smooth. The addition of candied nutmeg is simply amazing. I can just finish off the bread any time. Hope you guys will have fun too!
