Sourdough Journal

A journal of my attempts to make a sourdough starter, make sourdough, other breads, etc.

After sort of.... erm... uh... let me say 'neglecting' my starter for a few months (I'm a bad parent, I know). I spent the last few weeks getting it back up to snuff, and it is better than it ever was before!

It can raise itself, and bread, much more quickly. Has a nicer flavor.... Anyway, I made two small (sandwich) loaves of sourdough tonight. I should have pictures tomorrow. I got a a very nice rise, and a beautiful flavor.

I guess my starter likes the abuse? Not sure really. It definitely isn't sluggish now though, the starter gets about a 3-4x rise in 5 or so hours.
