When making bread, what do I do with the liquid from a soaker?
I am making stollen tomorrow. Tonight, I started the soaker, which is slivered almonds, dried cranberries, golden raisins, and mixed citrus peel. I covered it in a mixture of equal parts water and rum. When I make the bread tomorrow, I am supposed to drain the soaker and discard the remaining liquid, right? I haven't done this in a while. Thanks everyone!
