|Habanero-Lime Honey Bread|
(for automatic bread machines)
Settings: rapid, medium crust. If desired, add a few drops of green food color. The 1lb "proof of concept" loaf worked out very well.
** 1C all-purpose flour + 1t vital gluten + 1/2t diastatic malt powder == 1C bread flour. King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour is good for WW, milder in taste and has enough gluten to work well as a bread flour straight. This recipe uses this 50-50 with the above all-purpose mixture.
*fresh is preferred, but dried habaneros finely crushed with a cleaver should work well. You can use as many as you want, the original idea was this not to be overwhelmingly hot. If using dried habaneros, add about 2T more lime juice and if dough is still too dry, add more if you have it, or add water by teaspoonful until it's just right but no more. I think it ended up being about 1-1/2T+ once they were crushed (sandwich bag, crush carefully with honey jar).
This was a big hit at the September Hotluck at Jim McGrath's 9/28/97.
