Just a very quick post to say that the bread came out of the oven last night at about 12.20am (far too late!!) and I wrapped it all up in tea towels and left it to cool. I sliced it this morning and the FH has pronounced the Granary loaf "the best ever" so I am well chuffed! It is now all sliced up and most of it is in the freezer in half-loaf portions. He had some for breakfast with HM gooseberry jam, and then a chicken and pickle sandwich for tea, so multiple chances to taste it already. Unfortunately the YFG has declared it inedible as "it's got bits in in" - yes, dear - those are the seeds that give it the distinctive flavour - she'll be sticking to the white version, me thinks!
