Cooked Potato Starter White Bread


With Lucy’s success, after 3 tries, at the Methodist Ladies, 1906 Witch Yeast, Lucy thought she could move on to a more difficult starter - especially now that she has finally passed the last of the aluminum foil wrapped Hershey’s Kisses she ate a couple of days before Christmas – nearly a whole bag of them.  So much for chocolates being poisonous for dogs too.

When it comes to Bernard Clayton’s Complete Book of Breads, you never know where he came up with some of his starters, or what he was thinking, since most of them have commercial yeast in them.  This one is fairly odd though in that the first 3 days it doesn’t have any potatoes in it of any kind.


It could just as easily have been called Scalded Corn Meal and Milk Starter with some sugar and salt in it since that is how it begins.  You can find the recipe on page 284.  You just let this sit at 80 - 85F for 2 to 3 days, stirring it once a day until it ferments and becomes frothy.  How it does this I have no idea since the mix is scalded which should kill of f and denature most all the stuff in it that would make a starter.


Lucy says it is ‘wee beastie magic’.  Then you add boiled mashed potatoes, a huge amount of the potato boiling water, both cooled, along with some more sugar and salt.  You let it sit at the same temperature for another day, stirring every few hours, before refrigerating the soupy mass for 3 days to ‘age’ it.

So this another one of those no wheat flour potato starters but this one worked the first time because, unlike the Witch Yeast, the direction on how to make it were fairly clear and easy to follow.  When done it did smell a bit like a young fruity SD starter.  Clayton didn’t give a recipe to use it in, like he did the Witch Yeast, so we had no idea how to use it.

Holiday cookies aren't complete until the puff paste rugalach are done.

We cut the formula In half since the original would have ended up with 2 quarts of the stuff which seemed excessive – especially when the only things we keep in that mega size around here are beer, bourbon and wine.  Lucy thought we should just treat it like a finished levain but it was too soupy for my reckoning.

A nice small 8 pound Christmas Turkey.  Sweet limes (a new citrus for us) , butter, fresh sage and rosemary under the skin - after 24 hours in an apple cider brine.

So I, being the master in charge, overruled my apprentice and decided to feed 180 g of this stuff with 60 g of whole grains - 10 g each of rye, wheat, oat, barley, spelt and Kamut just to see if it could live once off a corn and potato diet and thicken it up to a more normal levain consistency.  4 hours later it seemed to be happily bubbling away so we fed it to the LaFama AP dough flour and some more potato water, this time half sweet potato water, until it felt like a 75% hydration dough.

Since the starter had so much salt in it, we had to guess at how much more was need and decided 1% the flour weight would work.  We sprinkled it on top of the dough ball and let it sit for 30 minutes so the white flour could hydrate.  We then did 3 sets of 30 slap and folds on 30 minute intervals and 3 sets of stretch and folds, from the compass points only, on 45 minute intervals.


Last week's Witch Yeast, Fig and Pistachio bread with a nice smoked pork. chili spiced, noodle soup.

 Once shaped we put it in a rice floured basket and then bagged it for a 20 hour cold proof.  We took it out of the fridge the next day and let it warm up on the counter for 2 hours hoping it would finish proofing since it didn’t do much in the fridge.  These young starters tend to be weak so you have to be patient or just love potatoes more than you do the average, aluminum pooping, bread baking apprentice!

We decided on using a hot aluminum pot for a cloache so that Lucy would know what aluminum should really be used for……. instead of makeshift, intestine rippers.  We preheated to 450 F and baked at 425 F for 15 minutes with the lid on since SFSD is baked at lower temperatures and this was a smaller loaf to begin with at 850 g. 


Once the steaming was done, we continued to bake at 425 F, convection this time, for another 15 minutes until the bread thumped done. It bloomed, blistered and sprang well enough under cover and browned up nicely with the dry heat.  We will have to wait to see how the crumb came out when we slice it for dinner.

Got to have corn bread for Christmas Dinner!

For a brand new corn and potato starter only 5 days old, this bread really stunned Lucy.  It has only the mildest of sour but it is fairly open, glossy, soft and moist on the inside.  It isn't super open for a 15% whole grain bread but the rest of the sought after crumb characteristics are there in spades.   The girls are going to like the left over cranberry, stuffing and turkey sandwiches we will make with this bread.   This is just the kind of bread they love.  You have to love Clayton! 

Yea!  The oranges are finally ripe

underfed, underfed, unrepeatable but definately edible Sourdough

pecan cherry breadWell typically I make hybrid breads using commercial yeast and my starter. Earlier this month  during a thrift store jaunt I picked up a used dutch oven, and I decided that I wanted to to test it out by revisiting my old nemesis Sourdough bread. 

So I pulled the starter out of the fridge and fed it twice  over a period of 12 hours, with flour and water; its been warm here . In the second feeding I also added a small amount of cornmeal.  I let that set overnight. Then the next day I added some sprouted wheat berries that I ground up in the bullet blender with some water. I let it rest somewhere but I dont remember how long. Then I added some more flour.  And I let it rest. Finally I added some pecans, salt and cherries. I let this proof in the refrigerator for a 90 minutes.I slashed it It could have been longer I preheated the pot and the top in the 450  Fahrenheit degee oven then I carefully unloaded the bread without burning myself!


But it is actually edible!

FAE Birnbaum Bannetons

Has anyone purchased any of these lovely banneton's made in Germany? It's so refreshing to find bannetons that aren't made in China. All of these are made from wood pulp or cane. I have no idea which ones to purchase. lol. They have so many.

If you're in America, or another english speaking country, make sure you click on the English flag to change the language. It does help.

Preferments vs AB5

I'm a few months in to a random daily bread baking obsession : ) and have played around with Bread Baker's Apprentice recipes as well as AB5, which to me contrast the kind of two extremes of this hobby, but both result in rather tasty things. I'm now deep into the sourdough forest, hearing different legends around the online forum campfires and trying to make sense of it all.

If yall dont mind, I'd love to learn the "why" of the advantage of preferments, in contrast to just "throwing it all together and waiting a few days".

For example:

1) making a some sort of sourdough preferment (and sometimes a separate soaker), waiting 18 hours at room temp or 3 days in the fridge, and then adding the FINAL dough ingredients


2) "just toss it all together and the yeast and bacteria will sort it all out" which seems to be the AB5 technique.

I guess the heart of my question is, in technique #1, what am I "saving/protecting" that final flour from? Why wait 18 hours to 3 days to add the final ingredients instead of letting it live amongst my sourdough starter and everything else for the while?

From what I understand, the answer to my question is not "to autolyze", since it is not a water/flour mixture that is standing alone in order to do enzyme magic to the starches. My final dough ingredients are in their separate containers during those 18 hours to 3 days.

Is it to minimize the growth of my yeast and bacteria, which would otherwise conquer every little bit of starch resulting in a more acidic / stronger flavor (too strong for some)?

Thanks to all.

Lucy’s Witch Yeast Fig and Pistachio Ancient Grain Bread

This week we were reminded once again that we aren’t as hip, modern and advanced as we think we are when to comes to bread and most other things.  We also don’t give our ancient ancestors as much credit and due as we should.  I published an article by Samuel earlier this week , Brewing and baking, in Ancient Egypt that shows how advanced they were in baking bread and making beer.

With all deference to Peter Reinhart’s Revolution, Egyptians were baking spouted grains and sprouted flour bread 4,000 years ago and they were putting porridge in their breads too.  They were also putting malt in their breads.  Lucy was crushed to find out they also put half sprouted and half whole grains in their bread mixes too.

Their beer making was just as sophisticated using malted barley and sometimes malted emmer in their beer and sometimes making 70% malted and 30% whole grain (barley and emmer) beers just like we do today.  They also found large amounts of yeast but only traces of LAB in their beer vats but no traces of LAB in their ancient bread loaves where lots of yeast were found.

You can tell that Samuel is no baker when he says that you can’t make a good loaf of risen spelt bread because there isn’t enough gluten in emmer - which it totally wrong.  You can also tell he isn’t a brewer when he says they probably didn’t use the barm from beer making to make emmer bread because the shock of fermenting barley in beer and then having to ferment emmer would be too much for it.  We know this too is totally wrong because commercial yeast for bread making is nothing more than the yeast used to ferment beer.


This year's winter, pot, salad garden

Some folks get a bit upset when I tell them that the stuff we do with bread and beer today are just not that different than what the Egyptians were doing in 2,000 BC.  The only real thing, a great thing really, that the last 1,333 generations of bakers and brewers have been doing and can take credit for, is carrying on the tradition and craft of making great bread and beer.  So cheers to you all for a job well done!

Well, Lucy was still a bit peeved and wanted to do something with bread that the Egyptians couldn’t possibly have done 4,000 years ago - or anyone else for that matter.  The only thing she could find that fit the bill was still 500 years old.  Witch Yeast! 

Witch yeast is made from potatoes and the Egyptians wouldn’t have had any of those until the early 1500’s since they came from the New World.  Folks living in the New World before then couldn’t have made this bread either since grains didn’t exist here until they were introduced to the New World by Spanish monks in the 1500’s. Try as she might, she couldn’t find anything new in bread for the last 500 years.

You can find the recipe for Witch Yeast here half way down the page and all kinds of other yeasty and SD things  Lucy did want to her 500 year old bread to the 4,000 year old Egyptian one to link the old with the new so she used ancient grains of emmer, spelt, barley, Kamut and a bit of rye to go with the modern wheat.  Figs and pistachios were also big in Ancient Egyptian bread as were dates and almonds.

She also sprouted half the ancient grains and used the bran from the sprouted and whole grains to feed the Witch Yeast one time - once it got going at the end of day 2. It was perking right along before and  after the bran feeding.  Instead of autolysing the dough flour with the fig soaker water we also mixed in the Witch Yeast since much of the liquid for the bread was in this very liquid starter.  We did sprinkle the salt on top.

We figured, since this was a less than a 3 day old starter, that it would be weak so the extra hour of it mixed with the rest pf the dough ingredients, less the salt would be good for it to get going, We also figured the extra sugar in the fig water would also help to feed the little Witches.

We did our usual 3 sets of 30 slap and folds and 3 sets of stretch and folds to develop the gluten and folded the figs and pistachios in on the first set of stretch and folds.  We let the dough bulk ferment for an hour on the counter, on the heating pad, before putting it in the fridge for 21 hours of cold sleep.  It didn’t rise a bit on the counter and just a little in the fridge.

We let it warm up for an hour this morning before shaping it into a boule and placing it in a basket for more than 8 hours of final proof.  This bread was slow but it was a young starter of witchy origins so you have to expect these things if you want to lead a charmed life.

We finally unmolded, slashed it and chucked it into the hot DO with the lid on for 18 minutes of steam at 450 F.  We took the lid off and continued baking for 5 minutes at 425 F before taking it out of the combo cooker and finished baking it on the bottom stone. 

Bread on right is last Friday's 50% whole grain chacon, with a 2 week old SD starter, rose a bit better in 1/4th the time for final proof.  Hopefully this new Witch Yeast starter will gain some strength as it ages.

It sprang and bloomed well enough but nit exceptionally and then browned up over the 15 minutes of dry heat.  It smelled  very nice.  Can hardly wait till tomorrow morning to see how this bread tastes.  The crumb was fairly open for a bread with these large add ins.  It was soft and moist with just the slightest hint of sour that was overpowered by the fig's sweetness.  It tastes more like a combo yeast water bread that has a bit of SD starter in it too.  We will have to see how this starter ages over time.

Dough Enhancer Even When Recipe Calls For Gluten?

Hello -- I've just received my first shipment of grains and am excited about milling my own flour. I've been reading up on dough enhancers and have decided to try one. The one I've made includes gluten, pectin, powdered milk, gelatin, ginger, and lecithin granules. My question is: if a bread recipe calls for a couple of tablespoons of gluten, should I omit it or keep it? Can't imagine it would do any harm, but would still like to know. Many thanks --Preston

Fluffy sourdough einkorn biscuits

hi! I have recently switched to einkorn and I have made a sourdouhh einkorn starter. I have flipped through an einkorn cookbokk, and I was not happy that the whole grain biscuits were a bit flat looking. I used to use this recipe with all the tips about crowding the biscuits and putting the dough in a hot cast iron pan to bake in.

several people have used water roux to lighten einkorn breads. I was wondering if anyone thinks they could suggest if a water roux and sourdough could be adapted to the recipe above In order to make wjole grain sour dough einkorn biscuits that are a bit more light, higher and fluffy. I won't get the same results as all purpose flour but I'm hoping it would make an improvement. I also want to know if a water roux could even successfully be used in a biscuit recipe? Please don't ask me why I want to do it (it's a personal choice). 


Thanks so much

First Boule Crumb

So this is my very first sourdough effort with my first (successful) starter. I hadn't cut into it when I posted a photo of the outside in the introduction forum so I thought I'd post the followup photo here along with a couple questions.

The crumb was ok but not as open as I'd hoped for, at least cut right through the center. Essentially, I got more of what I expected around the outside 25% or so of the boule from my 72% hydration dough.

Perimeter Crumb

As I mentioned in my other post, I struggled a bit with folding and shaping the high hydration dough so I know I degassed quite a bit more than I'd wanted. I would have expected the edges to take the brunt of that though rather than the center. I also put it into the fridge for about 16 hours immediately after shaping, pulled it and left it out at (relatively low) room temp for 2 hours prior to the bake.

Looking back at it, I'm thinking a couple hours at room temp prior to the cold retardation would have been a more effective strategy. Does anyone think this, along with a less spastic fold and shape are going to help the center look more like my corners (or edges, I guess a boule doesn't really have corners!). Any other thoughts or suggestions?

I also used bread flour rather than AP as my main flour source (10% whole wheat, my starter is a 50/50 rye/bread flour mix). Might swapping out 25% or so of the bread flour with AP help or would that hurt?

Overall, I'm pretty thrilled with the results. I really don't think I could have asked for much more from my first outing. It was little more dense and chewy than I'd planned for ( I was thinking a bread to have with wine and cheese), but what I got was spectacular as the platform for a grilled cheese that I had with a locally brewed stout (as well as a fried egg sandwich for breakfast the next morning!)

Can't resist one final photo of the boule itself...

Thanks in advance for any tips or pointers!

Too many eggs

Hey guys,

I'm making smitten kitchen's challah for the fifth time for a Christmas social I have tomorrow night.  Apart from the time that I overworked the strands to make the six braid bread look prettier (*sigh*), this recipe has turned out wonderfully every time.

Here is the recipe:

3 3/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (about 1 1/2 packages, 3/8 ounces or 11 grams)
1 tablespoon (13 grams) granulated sugar
1 3/4 cups lukewarm water
1/2 cup (118 ml) olive or vegetable oil, plus more for greasing the bowl
5 large eggs
1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
1 tablespoon (14 grams) table salt
8 to 8 1/2 cups (1000 to 1063 grams) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup raisins (about 70 grams) per challah, if using, plumped in hot water and drained
Poppy or sesame seeds for sprinkling.

I started making the dough tonight and realized that I'd added four jumbo double-yolk eggs instead of four large eggs.  I have no problem with it being more enriched, of course, because it is challah. 

The problem lies in the fact that those jumbo eggs have more liquid in them than four large eggs.  Here's what I did:  I mixed the ingredients on stir speed in my KA mixer with a dough hook for less than a minute-- probably closer to 30 seconds while scraping the bowl twice.  I pulled the sticky mess out of the bowl and kneaded a good 1/2 cup of extra flour by hand for ten minutes.  I don't normally knead very much by hand.  Is this excessive? 

What should I do next time I'm faced with this issue?
