Well......I thought it was and interesting story.
Thanks for the link. I find it fascinating how starters can be maintained indefinitely and one can be baking with a starter today which someone started 120 years ago and it's been cared for ever since. If that's not what bread is all about what is? It's the staff of life.
... was supposedly an apple! Which leads to AYW and other starters, each of which is some sort of biological process. I suppose then that the Puratos Sourdough Library cannot be much different from The Human Genome or the National Geographic Genographic Projects?
So here is the link to an interesting article about an archeologist that found yeast preserved in amber for millions of years! Wow! I wonder what would have happened if he was a baker?
and bake a bread from some 45-million-and 7 year-old yeast + 4 months.
