Gordon

Since 1960

After getting tired of the tasteless offering in most supermarkets I wanted to try making my own tasty bread and eventually discovered the delights and flavour of sourdough and now rarely bake or eat any other type of bread.

Characteristics

A lively starter, especially in warmer weather. Very robust as well, takes a lot of abuse and neglect

Taste & flavour

Feeding ingredients

1
Stir starter and discard about two thirds, add two scoops of Rye Flour then mix in tap water to achieve consistency required I have got to the point where I don't weigh anything, I just eyeball it.

Working method

1
Gordon originated at River Cottage and is 100% Dark Wholemeal Rye (Waitrose) Called Gordon in homage to the Brian Blessed character in the movie FLASH, so when he is ready to use I can shout 'Gordon's Alive'!
