Substrate idea...
    #1917742 - 09/15/03 11:41 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I was tossing around the idea of using bread as a substrate. My idea for the plusses would be nice airy substrate, grain based, holds moisture well. The only problem would be, how would you cook it in a PC? I wonder if you could use precooked bread or if you could actually bake it in the PC. Anyone ever try this or think about it?

Off the cuff, it seems like bread might hold moisture well in terms of volume, but how would it work with respect to homogeneity.  It seems like the bread would have to be blended with water, since it doesn't really have much capillary action. 

And wet bread is really just dough that won't rise anymore.  I don't think it would bake properly at 250 either.  I've never baked bread below 400. 

In short, I doubt this would be successful, but prove me wrong.  I know mold has no problem with bread.  :smile:


Remeber always, that my words here recount a long and beautiful dream. They in no way are reference to real events.

My neighbor said he used to grow shrooms on bread. He would wrap the loaf in foil as soon as it was done rising, and got a crust on top, after he finished baking it he would inject with spore solution and wait.
He said the loaf will colapse as it grows out. It will be flat by the time it is ready to fruit.
I have never tried it, just what I've heard.

I tried to leave my signature but it didn't work...
By the way... Does anybody know how to get sharpie markers off of a computer screen?

That gives me an interesting idea about Rye flour. Naa, I don't know how to bake anyways.
