Guess what I did this weekend? Got my sourdough starter going. I have two containers – one fed with King Arthur organic all purpose flour and one started with KA organic ap but fed with KA organic whole wheat.
Guess what I did this morning before I left for work? Started a batch of sourdough bread. This recipe has you create a “sponge” with a cup of starter, three cups of flour and 1.5 cups of water. It calls for a 2 to 8 hour rise or fermentation, though mine will be closer to the 8-9 hr mark. When I get home I’ll add more flour, knead it, rise it for a couple more hours and then bake it. I didn’t have time to take pictures this morning but I’ll take pictures tonight and I’ll post with more details about the process. Very exciting!
