Baking Soda and the Sourdough
Baking Soda...do you guys use it when creating a SD bread? If so, when is the baking soda added to the mix? For once it comes into contact with moisture the reaction takes place. Also, is there any need to add soda to a SD bread?
I had been making SD breads for a few years andnever used soda in any of them. Reason I ask the question is because I found an old book and in it were listed the notion that soda was to be added to SD breads...to give it a 'better' rise.
