I read a lot of blogs where people soak their grains prior to baking. Due to my ignorance, I felt intimidated by the thought of soaking grains, but I was searching for a simple tortilla recipe and came across one at Keeper of the Home (click for the recipe/tutorial). I tried the recipe and now I see how simple it is to soak grains (and also nothing like I imagined it would be).
I used hard white wheat to make these. The next time, I will try soft white wheat since there is no leavening in the recipe. The first batch that I made, I used apple cider vinegar in the soaking process. The second batch, I used kefir instead of the apple cider vinegar. We ate the first batch of tortillas as tacos on Friday night. They were very enjoyable - even the kids liked them. The second batch I made up and intended to try, but forgot all about them before I sent them home with my sister. I did not get to try the kefir tortillas, but I did notice that the dough made that way was much less stiff and nicer to work with. However, it was a bit more sticky, which was a problem. I had rolled all the tortillas out and put them on a plate prior to cooking them. By the time I got to the bottom of the stack of uncooked tortillas, they had started to stick together. Next time, I will have to keep them separate prior to cooking.
