Starting Over With Sourdough

My new cookbook has a recipe for whole wheat sourdough starter. After saying for weeks that I was going to try something out of this cookbook I decided this would be a good place for me to start.



My husband says the bread reminds him of bread in Germany. I can't deny, it does have a very "rye" type of taste . . . which got me thinking. I wonder if bakers in Germany use their own cultured yeast instead of commercial yeast.

The recipe makes 5 loaves, so after the first loaf I was a bit tired of the new taste. I'll be excited to see how the taste changes as my new start matures.

Anyone intersted in trying a loaf of whole wheat sourdough bread?

I'll take that recipe. We just bought a loaf of whole wheat bread from Central Market, and it tastes almost like a sourdough. I'd love to be able to recreate it at home. xo

When compared to Windows 7 Home Premium Product Key, Windows 7 Professional Product Key is outstanding. When will Microsoft ever learn? Keep it simple, attractive, and easy to use. Windows 8 Professional Product Key Most computer users just want the system to work. Windows 7 does this.
Got my old desktop up and running. I got Windows 7 Ultimate Product Key because my desktop used to run on Vista (enough said). http://www.productkeyservice.com I did have a little difficulty SQL Server 2008 Standard Product Key but that was just due to my lack of experience with the process; once I got started, Office 2010 Professional Plus Product Key was as easy as just following prompts.
