Starting on the 12th January 2009 to tie in with ’s Our Daily Bread Little Green Book feature, I’ll be making my very own sourdough loaf from scratch using just two ingredients – flour and water. Nothing else except possibly a sprinkling of salt. No yeast and absolutely no Mono and Di Acetyltartaric Esters of anything. First I’ve got to start my own sourdough starter (excuse the pun!), which I’ll ‘grow’ over a period of weeks using only the natural yeasts to be found in the air around us – and I’ll record my progress daily here on the FoodLovers blog. Join me. Start making your own bread with your very own starter – and post pictures on the blog tracking your progress. My posts will guide you day by day through the process. So be sure to come back then for the first installment and the details of what you need in order to get started yourself…
