  • O/T: Made some Sourdough bread today.

    Well, not just today. It took me two months to make and cultivate the starter dough.

    Just white flour and bottled water (ours has too much chlorine) and time.

    I would set it outside with a cheesecloth on it sometimes during the day.

    Just another old school method for making bread. My wife was not diggin the starter smell sometimes. Well, that's fermentation.

    I make beer, bread, kimchi and every other fermented food item. I love the old way of fermenting to preserve or create food. JR

      Impressive, I need to make another batch

      Even more impressed that you make Kimchi. I finally perfected mine after several years. Similar to this recipe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sX_wDCbeuU

      Kimchi based soup is to die for!

                    Butter, bacon, avocado, tomato and grilled cheese.
                    OR, smoked salmon, creme fraiche and caper berries.

                      I guess we have taste similarities. If you have time, I'd love to find out how you make kimchi.

                          Do you make landjeager too? One of my favorite fermented foods, when they're done right. (tip - go easy on the dill, or leave it out completely, it ruins an otherwise excellent sausage)

                            I used to date this really nice number who had sourdough culture which had been in her family since the American Revolutionary War. For those who don't know: the culture is the yeast that is used in the bread. It is a living thing which has to be "fed" with certain scrap food (I don't know what) and it continues to replenish itself and thus grow back to original size. This had been going on with this particular culture since around 1776 though all the generations of her family.

                            Long story short - her VERY conscientious baby sitter (girlfriend was divorced) decided to do her a favor and clean out the fridge. You guessed it - she threw it out. Took Nancy a week to realize what had happened and by then it was long gone.

                            *Tongue in cheek* Needless to say I cut off our relationship. I was only interested in her for her culture.

                              Surely in 200+ years another member of the family had some of this "mother"! Plus she had been selfish if she was not giving it away, you constantly have to prune a starter. I love sourdough, but having a starter is like having another pet, they need more attention than my cat, and don't meow when they're hungry.
