Learned another new lesson the hard way!
Baking breads is my business and it has become my hobby. Very early in the morning, I usually start this task so I could finish early. I was in the process of having the ten egg whites beaten in the mixer while making the batter out of the yolks, flour and sugar. To improve the taste, vanilla extract is being added.
I have been baking breads for almost two decades now so I feel very comfortable even without a written recipe as a guide but I was so in haste when I added the vanilla. All of the sudden, I noticed that it didn’t smell like vanilla. The thing I got hold of was a bottle of “used cooking oil” from frying fish previously. Too late because the fluid has immediately mixed with the flour and the other ingredients in the bowl.
The next thing I did was to get another new ingredients and started again from the separation of whites from the yolks. Of course, I discarded all the first set of ingredients which was contaminated by the used cooking oil.
I have learned a lesson- the hard way. Next time, I have to spend extra time to label the containers of the materials and make sure that I read those labels before anything else. Really- haste makes waste!
