Sticky Flour BagsMarch 06, 2014
My packages of flour always used to have some evidence of the most recent recipe around the edges of the bag.
From dipping hands, gummy with shortcrust pastry or pasta dough or some sort of bread, into the bag to re-flour the surface when kneading.
To save your bags from becoming crusty relics to your baking projects, before you begin kneading scoop out more flour than you'll likely need and pile it to the side of your work space.
Sweep a layer of flour over your kneading surface, returning any excess to the pile. Crack on with kneading your dough, if you find you need more flour just wave some across from your waiting pile- no sticky bags!
You can return any excess flour from the pile to the bag once your done.
