Organic Buratto Type 2 Flour
Buratto Type 2 - stone-ground and very versatile, good for sourdough breads, focaccia and Pane Sciocco (see below). Very similar to the French T80, it contains an untreated live wheat germ which makes the smell and the taste much better, and produces a blonde, rather than white, dough.
Here is a very simple traditional unsalted Tuscan bread, "Pane Sciocco" that uses this flour:
- 1kg Organic Buratto Type 2
- 700g water
- 4g dried yeast
In Tuscany and Umbria bakers use 5g salt for every kg of flour (for improved gluten development) rather than 25g which is typical in bread dough.
Knead and then leave the dough to prove at 20°C for 2 hours, then shape into 2 loaves and prove for 3 hours at 25°C and then bake at 220°C.
