Congratulations. Bread making becomes an addiction so be careful, you'll end up talking to your starter as if it's your child! :lol:

Number 2 was as above but instead of old dough, I added 3 tablespoons of greek style yoghurt and 2 table spoons of EV Olive Oil.

I made it into a long rectangle and smoothed the outside with more oil
then put on some sesame and nigella seeds.

Went well with my lamb koftas cooked on the hibashi and a little hommus and tabhouli

Had it toasted the next day excellent

I dont think I will buy bread again

Nice:)
Curing is not an exact science... So it's not a sin to bin.

Looks gorgeous, Snags! :D

I use to take a shortcut. This Polish product

is canned sourdough, actually intended for soups, and half a jar in the dough makes an excellent sourdough bread.

I have a simple taste - I'm always satisfied with the best.

never seen that here before,but it looks really interesting
I'm sure some polish deli would have it ( I wouldn't have known what to ask for before)

Is it like a thickening agent as well as flavour adder for soups?


Since starting my baking I have gone on to develop a sour dough base
http://www.sourdoughbaker.com.au/starte ... nique.html

Though I still use the water that gets released from my home made Greek yoghurt as the liquid in a few loaves (its a good taste).

Baking has come in handy with the floods in Queensland the shops ran out of bread and milk a few times.
Lucky I drink my tea black
yet to take the plunge still researching
