Fénix

Since 2015

I needed a place to expend creative energy. I found baking sourdough to be a thoroughly rewarding challenge. Every loaf of bread is a new journey.

Characteristics

My sourdough loves to be topped with cheese cloth and likes to be at 100% hydration. It bubbles and rises up to its peak just before feeding time. I like to give Fénix a stir before feeding because it causes an effervescent reaction.

In my kitchen, we refer to the starter as the "masa madre". Take 75g of your masa madre and drop it into a clean,tall, plastic, pint container.

Add 150g of 80F water to the masa madre and mix well. Use the masa abuela (a.k.a. discard starter) for tortillas, waffles, pancakes, baked goods, etc. I store my discard starter in the refer.
