This all started because the Daily Mail (a national newspaper) printed an article about how sourdough bread is the best bread you can get because it doesn't have all the preservitves as the store bought bread. It's made only with water and organic white flour and lots of natural yeast from the air. My father-in-law started buying it at the store, but the cost as adding up a we were eating a loaf every other night. The article had said that it was really easy to make, so we looked it up and I found this recipe.http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/2791/sourdough-bread.aspx
Of course what I didn't realize when I started this project that it was under the catagory of "challenging" and I've never really baked in my life (successfully anyways).
|This is actually a picture of my secod starter, but this is what the recipe means when they say bubbly|
|This is the first loaf with the first starter. I burnt the edges making it really hard and you can see the uncooked flour on top|
|The second loaf with the second starter. I started this last tuesday, so I'm hoping this time it's worth the wait. But it does look much better than the last one.|
