I haven’t made sourdough bread for about 2 months. The starter was languishing in the refrigerator and needed to be revitalized, so I added some rye flour, warm water and let it grow in a warm corner of the kitchen. After a day it was bubbling.

I used 1 deciliter of it to make sourdough bread – the first for a long time. It turned out excellent.

In the meantime the garden is drying and warming up. I’ve started tilling, making beds and sowing.

With a bit more practice and help, my sourdough bread is starting to come up to standard.

In fact it’s delicious! It is moist, bubbly, holds together, and the crust is just right. It goes fast.

This loaf is made with sourdough starter (homemade), whole rye floor, whole wheat floor, salt, sunflower seeds and dried cranberries.

It is so easy to make. Soon I’ll post recipes for both starter and bread.
