Not necessarily hole-y.
I just brought a loaf of my buttermilk sourdough bread to a friend who has digestive problems, and he was under the impression that all sourdough bread must necessarily be full of holes, like the artisinal breads. I bake most of mine in bread pans so that they're the sandwich-type breads. Anyway, he was delighted to find a sourdough sandwich breads without all those holes through which anything he puts on his bread drips through. And I'm delighted to say that I will be getting a few more sourdough orders in the coming weeks. To think that just 5 months ago, I was desperate for tips and help in getting some sourdough going, and keeping the starters healthy and active, and now people are willing to buy my bread! Thanks to all here who bore with me and encouraged me in those few iffy weeks!
