  1. Rhiannon- I’d be happy to, but I don’t use one.
    I add some flour and water to a bit of starter (also made of flour and water), and let it ferment over night. In the morning I add enough more flour to make dough.. kneed it a bit.. let it rest for a while. Then shape it and rise it. Depending on how warm it is, I’ll sometimes punch it down and let it rise again. I preheat the oven as hot as it’ll go for a good while.. and I bake it in a dutch oven (le crueset).. with the lid on for the first half hour, and then pull the lid off to brown the crust. TA DA. Sometimes it’s quite good.. Other times not as much. It’s an adventure!

  2. Wow, I think my kitchen skills are sub par for this adventure. Maybe I should work my way. I’m great with sauté, but my little sister is the Betty Crocker of baking in our family. haha

    Thanks for sharing, maybe I will grow brave and give it a whirl. 😀

  3. Ezra, that loaf looks amazing. I’ll have to try my hand at a sourdough starter when I get back from holiday travels.

    Do you do any gardening in the warmer months? You seem like you need another hobby.

  4. Ezra,
    Awesome looking bread! I just started baking myself a few weeks ago. I found a book that makes it super simple and the bread turns out nicely. You spend about 5 minutes preparing the dough, then you can leave it in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and only pull off hunks when you want to bake. Here is the book. I highly recommend it. I will be lurking around waiting to hear the good word.
