Well, I thought I'd give you the latest update on my goals. I mentioned earlier that I wanted to start making homemade tortillas. I made some the other day. They turned out good - the best I've ever made yet. I found that one of the tricks is to make sure you don't overcook them. In fact I undercooked them just a bit so they didn't turn hard. When overcooked, tortillas turn brittle.
Here's the recipe in case you want to try them. I'm not done yet. I'm going to try more recipes and alterations until I get one that I like the most, but this one was pretty good. The nice thing about this recipe is that the leftovers were still good afterward refrigerating (just as good as the first day). I'm not sure how long they last yet, it's been about 5 days and they are still good.
3 C. Freshly Ground White Wheat
1-3/4 C. Wonder Flour (Grind equal amounts Barley, Brown Rice, and Spelt)
1/4 C. Gluten Flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1-1/2 tsp salt
2/3 C. lard or shortening (I used lard)
2 C. (or less) very warm water (microwaved for 2 min.)
Cut lard or shortening into flours and salt in the Bosch bowl, using the cookie beaters. Change to dough hook and add water until dough pulls away from sides of bowl. Knead for 3 min. Divide into small balls. Roll and cook in skillet (or tortilla press if you have one).
BTW does anyone have a tortilla press? What kind do you have (and is it electric or non) and how do you like it? I'm looking into purchasing one maybe. Here's a few options I'm looking into:
