Tempting me with sourdough
I don't usually make sourdough bread unless someone asks me for a loaf specifically. But after reading all these posts lately, you have tempted me to get a starter going again. I've read that you can temper the sour flavour by adding baking soda, and as I'm not all that mad about sour, I'd like to know if this would work. Also, does sourdough bread automatically have a chewy crust and crumb? I'd be grateful for any help you can give.
