I haven’t made any sourdough bread for many years. The kids have taken it up, so I wanted get back into it again. I couldn’t quite remember the routine, so I figured I’d better go by the book. The book was wrong (or did I misinterpret something). The bread turned out hard and compact like a brick. It tasted great, but this is not the way I want it. Out it goes – to the birds.

I’ve started another dough – this time I’ll listen to the rest of the family. So far it looks very promising.
