Sourdough Spelt Rolls


Am typing this out while I am munching on these rolls for lunch. Had them baked this morning.

Just wanted to experiment on feeding old bread crumbs to my starter yesterday and it went really well. Fed the crumbs to the starter in the morning and in the evening, used the starter for a 100% spelt roll recipe. The dough rose quickly and 4 hours later, chucked it into the fridge.

took it out this morning and divided into rolls and into the oven it went! the result is kinda amazing, extremely moist and soft, even though this only a starter, flour and salt recipe!
