My first Sourdough Boule
After a couple of false starts, 10 days wasted and lots of flour tossed, I finally got the formula right. I followed Debra Wink’s advice and viola! On the morning of day 3 I had beautiful bubbles and on Day 4 made my first bread. I Look forward starter will continue to ripen (and sour) as it goes through additional feeding cycles. (FYI I used clementine juice in my starter).
Like a new parent, I have been up in the night checking on my “critters” happily fermenting in my improvised fermentation chamber (turned off oven with light on). Cannot wait for the taste test.
