Wednesday my daughter and I made pizza from scratch. Sorry, no pix as it is history! Anyway, we had old packages of yeast two of which we proofed before trying to bake with it. Since I hate to throw anything away, I decided to make some baguettes. I kept the dough in the fridge until yesterday and then made these. I think a bit more salt would have given the bread more flavor. Of course, that’s what butter is for. Meanwhile, I began increasing the amount of sourdough starter so I can make sourdough bread on Saturday. This starter came from the Cheese Board… it’s 35 years old! When I told the guy who was cutting cheese for my other daughter that I had their cookbook and had made some of the recipes he asked me if I would like some! Are you kidding? ”Yes!!” I’m thrilled! I have caught wild yeast to make my own starter ( an 11 day process) and let it get old without feeding it during my husband’s illness. So, now I am going to be good to my starter (in the bowl under the kitchen towel) and feed it every month if I don’t make bread. Have you ever made sourdough bread? Success? Dismal failure? Please share your experience in a comment. I’d love to hear about it!
