Since 2015

The idea of a fermented dough with wild yeasts pre-digesting the gluten seemed like the healthier way to keep bread in my diet.

Characteristics

Breads made with my starter develop a nice caramel color in the crumb and a complex flavor. Slightly sour but not unpleasant.

Working method

1
A basic starter made with unbleached all-purpose flour and filtered water. Mix equal parts flour and water and feed every day. I cover mine with a cloth and keep it on the counter in my kitchen. It takes 2 to 4 weeks using this method to create a starter from scratch.

Result

Bread, Waffles, and Pizza

A perfect use for starter discarded when feeding is to make a batch of waffles. I have also tried my hand at pizza.
