Hello! The Vintage Remedies Guide to Bread

Hi! I just made an account! I am a beginner at sourdough making and I really love sourdough bread! I just started my starter a week ago using book The Vintage Remedies Guide to Bread by Jessie Hawkins. I don't own the book. Just got the recipe from a friend, so I am still trying to figure it all out. I don't know if anyone else is using this method, but if you are, please leave a comment and tell me about your experience.

Blessings,

                   SourdoughLover

And welcome to TFL!  Glad to have you here and am looking forward to hearing about your breads.

Sorry, I have no knowledge of that book.

Joe Ortiz's  WW,milk and cumin method. sweetbird did a great write up on it  She was a fantastic TFL Baker that has moved in to gluten free I think.  You can see Joe on TV with Julia Child on YouTube making this starter. I have made this starter a couple of times and it always works like Debra Wink's does . Here is the seeetbird link
