Multigrain Breadsticks and Saltverk Flaky Sea Salt

Posted by Gregorie / January 15th 2015

Multigrain Breadsticks and Saltverk Flaky Sea Salt

Fresh breadsticks are a very versatile and beautiful accompaniment to any meal. The multigrain flour gives a wonderfully nutty flavour and a delicious bite to the breadsticks. The Saltverk Flaky Sea Salt offers a wonderful tang to these and is a great foil for cured meats and cheeses.

Ingredients

500g Multigrain bread flour

5g Dried yeast or 10g fresh

10g Saltverk Flaky Sea Salt

350ml Warm water

Method

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix until combined. Tip out onto a work surface and knead and stretch for 10 mins or so until smooth.
Do not be tempted to add more flour, it will be a little messy to begin with but the dough should begin to come together soon enough. A dough scraper may come in handy!
Place the dough in a clean oiled bowl and cover and leave to prove for an hour or until doubled in size.

Grab a couple of baking trays and line with non-stick baking liner or dust with flour. Lightly flour the work surface and tip the dough out. Push the dough out into a rough rectangle.
Using a dough scraper or knife cut a 1cm strip off the dough, the swiftly roll and stretch these into 30cm/1ft breadsticks, and place gently on the prepared baking sheets. Continue taking slices from the dough, rolling and placing until the dough is finished.
Dust the breadsticks with a little flour and leave to prove.

Heat the oven to 200C

Leave the dough for 45 mins to 1 hour until puffed a little. Place the trays in the oven and bake for 12-15 mins until crisp and delicious. Leave to cool on a suitable rack then service with suitable accompaniments, or a fresh rocket pesto - whatever takes your fancy.
