A Little Sourdough and a Trip to Vermont. . .

A little sourdough. . .

A little sour tell about my sourdough. Decided to dive into a sourdough starter again. My sister is the sourdough, well anything baking, Queen. She inspires me with all that she accomplishes on the daily.

My sourdough starter consists of 3 T pumpernickel flour and 3 T of water (luke warm water). Mix and let set on your counter gently covered with plastic wrap. Day 3: 2 T pumpernickel flour and 2 T luke warm water and stir gently. Day 4: 2 T flour and 2 T luke warm water. Day 5: 5 T pumpernickel flour and 5 T luke warm water. Day 6 discard half of your starter and then feed the remaining starter 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup luke warm water.

Day one of my starter

I think this is day 3 of my starter and a picture of my pumpernickel flour I use.

you can see the bubbles

Making bread. . .

Made two different breads with my starter, I made two sourdough loaves and two white loaf/ sandwich bread loaves. They all turned out pretty nice the sourdough had a perfect crusty crust and soft inside. The loaf / sandwich bread was very nice, will have to wait to find out how it tastes Sprat and Sweet G took those loaves with them.

This is my rustic sourdough loaf. lol

Went to Vermont. . .

Went to Vermont this past week and visited the King Arthur Baking company. I love that place and love their products. Picked up a few things I was out of and enjoyed lunch too. It was a beautiful ride up the mountain.

Did get to see some snow on the way. . .
