    Sourdough

    I’ve been getting into some sourdough bread and venturing into some different recipes. There’s a couple of people in my house who get sick from storebought bread so we’ve been cranking this stuff out and freezing it regularly. It’s all good, but some stuff is better than others.

    This is a good resource for foolproof bread.

    Re: Sourdough

    This is today’s creation.

    A light rye with caraway seeds. The recipe called for 3 tablespoons, but I cut it back to 1 and I beat the dough for 5-6 minutes with a dough hook and performed two sets of stretches. And I used 140 grams of rye flour.

    Most people over complicate things. I quite often just mix the dough and throw it a bowl to rise all day and then throw it in the oven after dinner. It doesn’t take much work time, just sitting time.

    I like sourdough, but don't like the effort required to babysit the starter

    I shot from the hip today and modified the rye recipe from yesterday. Replaced the sugar with what I thought would be an equalish amount of molasses, used some fresh brewed coffee in place of some of the water and added a touch of cacao and allspice.

    Sourdough has been the answer to bread sensitivities ? How does that work?

    I like a good sourdough with just enough rye to give that distinctive falvor and smell.

    My starter is sorely abused. It gets left in the fridge for months on end and revived if I want to make some bread - requiring some maintenance every four weeks hardly seems like babysitting to me. But hey, to each their own.

    Check out “Artisan Sourdough Made Simple” by Emilie Raffa. My wife and I frequently use this book for inspiration for new loaves - the cheddar and dill one is fantastic.

    This isn’t the only spot I’ve seen mention of gluten sensitive people finding sourdough is fine. I can honestly say, my knees get inflamed and I feel bloated if I eat most store bought breads, but I’m fine if I was my home made loaves. Maybe it’s placebo or I just eat less of the homemade stuff, but I’ve noticed a difference.
    If it cant be done with one shot, it shouldn't be done.
