Is this an unusual way to make sourdough?
Many years ago my Mother gave me a portion of her sourdough bread dough, told me to keep it for a week and then use it to make my bread. I would then keep the same sized portion of my own dough for the following week, no actual starter.She told me this was how her Mother made it in Germany and it worked. She got her dough from a friend.Obviously i don't know anyone that I can get a chunk of dough from.
Years on I would like to make this again, I have found some gluten free recipes I'd like to try but I don't know where t start.I can't recall what quantity I was using, I have no idea if this works for gluten free? All of the sourdough recipes I have found seem to be tedious.
