Domestic Matters: Learning How To Make Sourdough Bread From Scratch

As if starting my vegetable garden from seed wasn't challenging enough, I've decided to attempt to learn how to make sourdough bread from scratch.

As if I don't have enough to do.

The picture below is my sourdough starter in the process of being made.

Sourdough Starter

Basically a sourdough starter is fermented flour and water.   The natural yeast present in the flour is activated by letting the flour and water mixture sit out for a few days.  Essentially instead of going to the store and buying a packet of yeast, you simply make your own.  The sour part of the sourdough comes from the latic acid produced from the fermentation process.

Frankly, I kinda think that the whole thing looks like a elementary school art project.

Unlike my elementary art project, I'm hoping that this little experiment produces delicious results.

I'll keep you updated on my progress on making my first loaf of bread.
