This is the most recent bake from my firm starter using the formula in Crust and Crumb...I love this book! I am very pleased with the dark color and crust...not so much with the shape and slashing...but overall my best effort to date. I have been nurturing this starter since January and am becoming increasingly happier with the results, as are friends and family. These two loaves will go to the Outer Banks for the weekend, so there will be no crumb pictures, but hopefully the good results will continue and I can get some good shots from the next bake. Thanks for everyones help. This is a great site!
