We’ve received a handful of thoughtful housewarming gifts after moving into our new place, but one of the more interesting ones was a sourdough starter. This was a little bit of the boyfriend’s mom’s sourdough starter that she’s been keeping alive week after week for some time. Now it’s ours to keep alive each week and make into delicious treats if/when we choose. This week we did our first sourdough loaf, yeay!
We used a really basic recipe (and I’m using the term “we” loosely, as I don’t do much besides set timers and wash dishes), and it turned out pretty well. Hopefully we can get better and better (as our sourdough gets more and more sour) and I can start posting some delicious recipes.
And if you haven’t been lovingly bequeathed a sourdough starter, it’s pretty dang easy to make one of your own. This tutorial on The Kitchn is a great helper.
