Finally got the correct wires for the larger cheese slicer and it works great. Used it to cut the Apple Sage hot-process loaf today and it looks fine. Not as pretty as Taiwan and other swirls, but amazing for hot process.
I also cut the rest of the lemongrass swirl in half and I think the bars will be a much more manageable size.
Although I left the Apple Sage in the silicone mold longer than we usually do, it still feels a little tacky. If it’s anything like the Patriot Swirl, however, it should firm up rapidly due to the sodium lactate in the recipe.
