I did it! I have successfully baked sourdough bread. Confession – I did cheat a bit. I was really nervous about cultivating my own starter, as I have heard a number of stories from friends who have had difficulty getting consistent results with their homegrown starters. When I bake bread, I need bread (I knead bread, too, but that’s another story ;-). The loaves or rolls or whatever I’m making are part of our meal plan, and if they don’t bake correctly, it’s a problem. I buy organic wheat berries and flours, and I can’t afford to be throwing out flopped loaves of bread. (I don’t think most of us can afford to throw away food, especially with rising food prices.) So, in the interest of successful sourdough right from the start, I ordered a sourdough starter.
