but I am so making this sourdough bread.
I just started the sourdough starter. Can't wait!
1 package active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups warm water
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp sugar
In a large mixing bowl dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water.
Stir in 2 cups warm water, flour, and sugar.
Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed till smooth.
Cover bowl with 100% cotton unbleached cheesecloth.
Let the mixture stand at room temp for 5-10 days, or till it has a fermented aroma, stirring 2-3 times a day.
To store the starter, transfer to a jar, cover with the cheesecloth and refrigerate till ready to use.
Do not cover tightly or use a metal lid.
To use starter, bring desired amount to room temp.
For each cup of starter used, replenish remaining starter by adding 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup water and 1 tsp of sugar.
Cover and let mixture stand at room temp for at least 1 day or till it is bubbly.
Refrigerate starter for later use.
If you have not used the starter within 10 days, stir in 1 tsp of sugar. Repeat every 10 days unless starter is replenished.
After the 5-10 days that it has fermented, I will post recipes.
Also if you ever have the chance to go to Disney's California Adventure, go to Boudin tour. They give you sourdough bread to eat while you are on the tour. It is so yummy!
Here is a video tape of the tour not by me.
