Since 2012

A doctor told me I probably was gluten intolerant and should stop eating bread. I LOVE bread so I decided to try every means to eat bread. After moving over to only sourdough I haven't had to see the doctor again. And now I only eat proper handmade bread with few ingredients.

Characteristics

My sourdough yields breads and baked goods with a complex flavour. My bakes are never sour but rather sweet and nutty tasting. My sourdough seems to be able to handle just about anything; months of neglecting, irregular feedings, being left too close to the warm stove.. it always becomes it's bubbly self again.

1
I feed my sourdough morning and evening. Sometimes if I know I won't bake for two or three days I feed it once a day. If I'm busy I keep it in the fridge so I won't end up with excess starter. I try and feed it about 3-4 hours before I intend to bake from it, to get a sweet flavour.

Working method

1
I feed my starter with equal amounts of water and flour. I prefer my sourdough to be equal amounts of wanter vs. flour. I also feel that my starter ferments better when I use organic flour, esp. whole wheat flour.

Liquorice rolls

These are buns, like cinnamon rolls, but instead of cinnamon I used liquorice. They're lovely!

San Fransisco bread with enkir flour

This is my favorite bread recipe. The classic San Frasisco loaf but with enkir flavour. Yields a lovely dark nutty loaf
