In my last post, I shared that my family is not always gluten-free lately.
We’re experimenting with homemade sourdough bread (and, today, using sourdough in other recipes like pancakes and homemade crackers).
Remember my sourdough starter, Bertha? Here she is on day 4 shortly after feeding. As I type this, she’s in my oven, with the light on and the door cracked, to get a perfect temperature to grow.
As I shared in my last post, when you create a sourdough starter you throw away a lot of it before feeding it. Ken Forkish, bread expert, says to think of this as “spent fuel” and don’t feel guilty about throwing it away. It’s part of the sourdough making process.
However, there are some things you can make with sourdough starter, instead of throwing it away:
- Sourdough Starter Mini-Me With Einkorn Flour. Oh, and Sourdough Rye Crackers
- Sourdough Bread Fail – I’m Baking My First Loaf. Whoops. Not What I Expected.
