Rustic Sourdough Bread, First Loaves
Who loves Rustic Sourdough Bread?
I do, and have always wanted to give it a go and bake my own.
A key in preparing Rustic Sourdough Bread is the ‘mother,’ that is, the ‘mother’ sourdough starter needed in order to begin preparing Sourdough.
Recently, King Arthur Flour offered a free bright colored canister if, you purchased their sourdough starter. Done.
Once you have the ‘mother starter,’ there are a whole series of preparations to the required mother ‘feeding’ process once your Starter has arrived.
It is all quite easy, but nevertheless, requires attention over an extended number of hours until the mother of sourdough is ready to perform its magic.
Step one is a wait time of 8-12 hours, step two is 2-4 hours, and later another 2-4 hours, then your sourdough starter is ready to use for preparing Rustic Sourdough Bread, a round Boule, some Pizza Crust, any among a series of recipes in the King Arthur Flour Sourdough Tips and Recipes booklet that comes along with your little container of sourdough starter.
Preparing the Rustic Sourdough Bread is easy and there are really only 2 ingredients you need to deal with other than the starter, lukewarm water & flour.
Once your sourdough starter is prepared and used in a recipe, you refrigerate the rest loosely covered, and only need to feed it once a week, just like a plant. On the down side, if you forget to feed your starter, you need to begin the whole process again.
The Mother of Doughs created Fresh and hot from the oven, lightly sour scented, deep golden, and crusty, homemade Rustic Sourdough Bread, First Loaves. Try it. You’ll Love it!
