I love sourdough bread, so I thought it was about time to have a go at making my own. First off I needed to work out how to make a sourdough starter, I’ve browsed the web endlessly trying to find a recipe that sounds right for me. I eventually found a recipe in one of my cookbooks Nourishing Traditions, by Sally Fallon.
The recipes I came across all pretty much called for the same ingredients.
Equal parts rye flour and filtered water.
Here’s what I used:
1cup of Rye flour
1 cup of Rain water
I mixed these up in 2 litre sterilised Fowlers jar, covered the jar and popped it in the pantry a (place of about 20 degrees) to work its magic.
Every day I need to feed the dough with 1 cup of Rye flour and about 1 cup of water to help the starter to develop. This should make a soupy consistency.
Ill keep you updated on how my sourdough starter is coming along!
