So far I have tried twice with the Sourdough. The first starter I did something wrong with and the second starter I had just got going nicely when mum was taken back into hospital and it denied of neglect. So I having another go. This time I have made two starters and this time round hopefully I will get to make my loaf(loaves). I have given them names Bessie (of Bessie Bunter Fame) and Busty Bertha. I hope both live up to their rather exotic names. I am planning on getting the starters well under way before I use them but at the moment am planning a week on Saturday to make my first batch of bread.
As the saying goes third time lucky but at least I am learning what not to do with the Sourdough by doing exactly what I shouldn't through no fault of my own.
I have a round Banneton basket in readiness together with a couple of dough scrapers. I will probably get some more in due course if everything goes well. The Dehydrator apparently is very good for helping bread to rise.
Catch you soon
