I have always loved the taste of sourdough but cannot buy artisan loaves locally, so I finally decided to have a go myself - and was instantly hooked! It’s taken a while to get a robust starter that I can get consistent results with, but my last few bakes have been ‘proper’ sourdoughs. Beyond excited!
Sozzy is very active and gets fed once a day - one tablespoon of starter, plus 2 tablespoons of spring water plus 3 tablespoons of flour. My flour mix is currently 25% whole-wheat, 25% Khorasan and 50% Bakers unbleached white (all organic). The flavour is slightly sour with a rich, almost fruity but still savoury aftertaste. The smell has strong sour notes but still smells fresh.
