No I am not making glue!
I thought I would give my hand at making my own sourdough bread starter. Blondie had an excellent attempt so whilst hers is sitting in the fridge now it’s my turn.
Eekkk! This can go two ways!
1) I will end up with a horrible looking science experiment growing in my kitchen, or
2) I might actually succeed and end up creating a starter that will be passed on for many generations! (perhaps I am dreaming!)
Whilst I don’t want to create a gift to pass down to Imogen for her wedding in years to come, I would love to be able to make my own fresh bread. Like our mushroom picking, there is something very satisfying in eating your own fresh bread.
I have made bread before, in the bread maker. It was yummy and I loved waking up to the smell of freshly baked bread.
Starting from scratch and making it by hand will definitely be more satisfying!
I found this recipe on one of my favourite blogs called ‘The Stone Soup’ by Jules Clancy.
So please keep your fingers crossed that this experiment is a success!
