I was driving an old friend the other day and mentioned I liked to baked sourdough to see what he might say. Let me explain that this dear friend fought in the last world war and was held captive in Russia after the war. Now he was telling me that in this POW camp, the bread was made to rise by injecting it with Carbon Dioxide gas. How this was done I do not know but it has made me curious.
