No longer counting the days. Today I made sourdough bread from a recipe I found on youtube. I originally found a recipe for sourdough starter .. also on youtube but it got forgotton and turned to a bubbly bowl of fuzz. I tossed that and tried again and after day 3 I didn't like the result. Then I found another recipe for a starter with more ingredients than flour and water. And you didn't have to watch it grow and feed it. Hence.. it is probably not officially sourdough. This recipe called for some bread flour and yeast, warm water and sugar mixed and covered for 2 days..... I think it sped up the process.
Anyway.... here's how it turned out.
So far so good...it's rising
Looks and smells good...
Tastes great. Not as "sour" as I would like, but delicious! (hot w/butter)
