Focaccia made with caramelized potato broth
« on: April 22, 2018, 01:08:46 PM »
Tried a little modernist twist on getting more potato goodness into focaccia - substituted caramelized potato broth for all of the water. I botched several things like forgetting to line the pan with parchment paper. The focaccia fused to the pan and I ended up doing considerable damage to remove it from the pan. Never the less, this was the lightest, fluffiest, most tender, delicious focaccia I have ever had. Perhaps not authentic, but I have no allegiance to baking tradition. I'm definitely going to push this recipe hard till I get it right. I'll post a video here of the process once I figure it out.

That looks pretty tasty, Bill. 

What is caramelized potato broth? I tried to look up, but couldn't find any info.

Thanks, Paul. The video does not do justice to the texture. It was very special.

Potato broth:
 
1. Peel potatoes
2. Brown peels in butter
3. Push peeled potatoes through juicer (I use Acme Juicerator)
4. Place juice and browned peels and a little baking soda in canning jars
5. Cook jars in water in pressure cooker for a few hours
6. Strain and use cooled broth instead of water in the dough

You can slightly taste the browned potato peels in this focaccia and it was pleasant. But once I start adding other flavors I may not want the peel taste. Next batch will omit peels from the broth. I'll also do a half focaccia using potato broth and another half with water instead.
