A Sourdough Story

I just started a San Francisco sourdough starter from sourdoughbreads.com. Plus have recipes for lots of sourdough baked goods. Follow along – and if you are local (or planning on staying at The Lodge)  I am sure to have extra starter if you want to try!

3/3/2012   Must have been good , they asked for them again.  Hot skillet, a little butter, a scoop of sourdough right out of the active starter, turn over, turn out onto the pan and fill with bananas and a bit of real whipped cream – drizzle with chocolate.  Now that is a breakfast – and easy on the stomach!

3/2/2012    My kids are requesting crepes – I respond with sourdough crepes!

2/12   Trying my first loaf of sourdough bread.  Just for fun I have one in a bread machine and one loaf will be baked on a hearth stone in my convection oven – we will see…

I am trying a lower gluten diet – never thought I would say that but I think it makes me sleepy.. so I just watched a video on a donut recipe – he says 1/2 a cup mashed potato if the secret ingredient – what he DOESN’T say is that a sourdough batter – then made in coconut oil – might be worth a bit of indulgence..

I see an awful lot of sourdough recipes with LOTS of variations – I’ll post the ones that work best for me.

1/26/2012  Just tried making Sourdough Naan!  Respectable for the first try!  Even made some with cinnamon along with the plain. Tried butter and coconut oil, plus used fresh ground gluten free flours like quinoa to roll it.

2/10  Sourdough orange muffins, wonderful milk, great eggs, and a coupe drops of tangerine essential oil – wish you could smell them!!

2/2  Sourdough pancakes – Yum!
