Back at Bread Again

Well, I'm a bread lover. Just about any and every kind of bread will do. Found a good Sourdough Bread recipe over a Hallland 1896 and wanted to give it a try. Liv and Savannah also like Sourdough Bread too, so it's a win win for me. Just got my starter mixed and now it's wait and see time. Looking pretty good so far, it's working away. If you're interested in learning to make this Sourdough Bread Starter jump over to Hallland 1896 and give it a look. Come on, you know you want to. I'll keep ya posted as to my results.

Making sourdough bread is something I have been meaning to try. I bought a bread machine at the Goodwill store and have had fun with it (and blogged about it, too); it's time to make the jump to breadmaking without the machine.
Eventually I want to make sourdough bread outdoors in my Dutch oven, on an extended camping trip. That would be a challenge.

I hope it turns out wonderful! Sourdough bread and I have a love/hate relationship. I love bread, but I kinda don't like sourdough. If it's around, though, I'll eat it, cuz' I think, "It's bread--I should like this"! Hmmm...Maybe I just need some good homemade stuff! Tell me how it turns out. (Sourdough has always fascinated me--it's like a renewable source of energy!) Gen

I'm really looking forward to trying this. Have been looking for a sourdough starter to try. How much of the starter do you actually keep when you decide to make bread?


TEAM HALL said...

LOL, you already started it?!?! You are soooo funny! Keep us posted with the results. No fancy bread machines..just get your hands in there!

Tracy, I think bread making is an art form, and I'm not an artist. lol Just trying some different breads to try to find one that's easy for me. Extended Camping trip-- I like the sound of that.

Gen, maybe homemade is what you need to try. Like you say it's kinda like a renewable source of 'bread'. hehe. Thanks

Goat Creek Grandma, I got most of the recipe over at Hallland 1896, she also has the link where she found it and I followed that one too. You use a cup of the started to make your first batch of bread. I'll keep ya posted.

Team Hall, did you really think I could wait??? I just had to get it started and see what happened, smells so good this morning.

Thanks to all and I'll keep ya posted as to how it's going.

Sourdough bread is the ultimate! You can be so creative with it. Works good for muffins, pancakes and waffles,too. I have the book "Sourdough Baking" by Susan Draudt, and there are just all kinds of sourdough recipes in it! I made whole-wheat sourdough last week. Wish you the best with yours! I am sure you will enjoy it!

Amy said...

What a coincidence: I baked bread today too! The weather's perfect for it. The house is nice and toasty now too and smells great.

The Scavenger said...

Sunny, thanks and I may have to look for that book. We love waffles too so I'll try them. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come back often.

Amy, I guess great minds think alike. lol Our house smells of sourdough and it's great. I know yours will turn out extra good. Thanks,

Thank you both for your comments and please come back soon,
