I'm in love with wild yeast!
I started my sourdough starter on January 18th of this year. I am following Peter Reinhart's method in The Bread Baker's Apprentice. It amazes me how easy this is. Just flour and water. I spent nearly 20 years buying and using packaged yeast. Nothing tastes quite like wild yeast raised bread! I bought a pound of yeast in early January that I have hardly touched and I am hard pressed to find a use for it now.
This is my latest attempt at sourdough. The recipe is from Peter Reinhart's book. This was my first time using proofing baskets and I over-floured them just a tiny bit! Still, I love the way they turned out. They taste amazing, although, not very sour.
