OH MY GOD!
OH MY GOD!!! I did it!!! It's traditional, with instant yeast, but it's tastes fabulous. In my humble opinion. Tastes a whole lot better than when I put made it in a bread machine!! If I could only find my damn Bluetooth adapter, I'd post a pic. Josie and I are going to take some to my sister tomorrow. I like it that much. If I wasn't sure, I'd tell her it didn't taste so good. I WANT TO SHARE!!
Go ahead. Pat me on the back. I questioned my kneading and my attempt at Jim's method, but damn it turned out nice.
Picture this...WhhhoooooHoooooo... I'm dancing on air with Josie. She can jump really high!
Thanks for all your support, everyone who contributed. I'm so happppy.
Oh, BTW, my starter is starting really good. Maybe tomorrow or the next, I'll have real sourdough bread!!!
