Sourdough Baguettes

Sourdough Baguettes

Two sourdough baguettes, made with the same recipe as my other baguettes, just with sourdough starter instead of yeast. Poor lighting so the picture is not the best, sorry. Not sure how they taste, haven't had the chance to try them yet, and gave one away.

So how did it taste? I'm never able to wait longer than 5 minutes to taste bread out of the oven!!

They were very good! Possibly tending a bit towards too sour. Probably because I went longer on the starter stage of it as I wasn't seeing all that much activity. The recipe called for doing a much more liquid starter for the loaf than I am used to.

My starter doesn't seem to like being thin, it works best when thick.

I think in this case that, and my attempts to get it to actually rise some more really kind of hurt it, and just caused too much acid which didn't let it develop a lot of rise or structure. So I know for the future to follow what MY stater likes not what other people think it should. But, all in all, good for my first sourdough baguettes.
