Sourdough Recipes

We have been sharing our sourdough starter for years. One of the most valuable aspects of sharing sourdough is that if yours should suffer a fatality (yes, sourdough can die) then you can contact one of the recipeints of your starter to replenish your starter. Boy, this is true in so many apects of life! Here are the directions that we have used for years and some of our favorite recipes. If you receive a cup or less of starter then we recommend building the volume with a small feeding of 1 cup water to 1.5 cups of flour.

Send a note if you want to be on our waiting list for starter.

 

SOURDOUGH RECIPES

 

FEED YOU SOURDOUGH EVERY WEEK, OR TWO.

2 CUPS WATER

3 CUPS ALL PURPOSE WHITE FLOUR. I HAVE HAD BAD LUCK USING WHEAT FLOUR

PUT STARTER IN BOWL, ALLOW TO WARM TO ROOM TEMPERATURE. ADD FLOUR AND WATER AND MIX WELL. THIS WILL RISE, DOUBLING OR MORE IN VOLUME. WAIT FOR MIXTURE TO JUST BEGIN TO FALL.

SET ASIDE 1.5 CUPS, PLACE IN WIDE MOUTH MASON JAR AND COVER WITH A COTTON SQUARE

CRACKER RECIPE

 

‣ 1 cup sourdough starter

‣ 1/3 cup melted butter OR ¼ cup Olive Oil

‣ 1 cup plus more unbleached all purpose flour*

  *whole wheat flour can be substituted.

 

All varitions use this basic dough.  In a small bowl, pour in 1 cup sourdough starter and 1/3 cup melted butter, or olive oil. Stir to combine.

  Add 1 cup of flour to this mixture. Stir well. Add additional flour until you have a stiff dough. You may have to do some kneading in the bowl to incorporate enough flour once it gets too stiff for stirring. Cover and set aside for at least 8 hours. (I actually had my dough out for 36 hours!)  When you are ready to get baking, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

Variations on the theme. Do not be shy. Experiment.

¼ c Nut mix

Fresh herbs chopped fine

Dried herb seasoning
