Thought I’d try a different scoring technique on my Batards. I’ve been unhappy with my oven blooming as of late.
Today I made an “S” with my lame. One of the loaves had just the “S”. The other I made a second pass undercutting it a bit more on the curves.
Everything else about the bake was per my norm.
Great oven blooming! I was really pleased.
The first single loaf picture was the one which I’d underscored a bit more (one on right in the double picture).
I’m going to try this scoring method again to see if I can replicate these results.
Until then, there is bread to enjoy!
