There seems a craze about this ingredient that is used in baking breads. Personally, I do not like anything that is BLACK in colour that is edible. The colour puts me off. But hubby ask me to try it in bread making. Just to see how it tasted like and maybe to run a short demo on its usage outside our store.
I started to look around for a local supplier who import this in. And I found one.
Its now repackaged for sale at my store at 40g for S$9.50.
As of now, I have 20 bottles left..already sold some 8 bottles.
Here's a link about what it is all about.
And here's fellow blogger's take on using it to bake a black bread.
I might just as well try it on a cookie. I won't have time to fuss about proofing and waiting for bread dough to proof over time.
See how..maybe next week.
