More on sourdough starter
After doing some reading on-line, I threw out my 4 day starter and I’m starting a new batch according to Mike’s method of starting your own sourdough starter. I didn’t measure my first time (the photo on the previous sourdough post), so that’s why I’m starting over. Guess what else? I ordered some sourdough starter from this place: http://www.northwestsourdough.com/. Oh boy! You have to log on to Northwest sourdough to see the videos. You take a roaster lid and put it over your loaf of bread in the oven, spraying it with water before hand and what a technique it is for getting the crust just right. I’m going to try it.
I’m so sourdough bread crazy that I called long distance today to order some pumpernickel bread from a bakery I found almost 2 hours away. I’ll be driving over there in a week and they only make pumpernickel on Thursdays… good thing I called in an order. Their pumpernickel is made with a sourdough rye. A piece of that toast with coffee from a percolator coffee pot is the ultimate breakfast. The photo with the loaves is the shape of the loaf I get at the bakery.
