Three starters...

After some dispiriting failures (the Paul Hollywood organic apple starter, the Pineapple Juice solution), I have three new contenders: George Greenstein's rye sour, Maurizio Leo's rye starter, and Chef Rachida's interpretation of Kristen's starter from Full Proof Baking. Hopefully one of them will thrive. I'm pretty sure I'll be baking Jewish Rye Bread tomorrow--although that bread is not sourdough. Once I get a viable starter, I'm shooting for the moon. I've seen such wonderful posts lately that I cannot wait to get going. I have plans for rye, ancient grains, and trying spelt to see if my daughter who's wheat intolerant can stomach it. If not, I will eat it!!!
