Sunday 26th April 2015 - Sour Dough, episode 1

Last week I had enough spare energy on Monday and Tuesday to make Oaty Chocolate Brownies (that used up the last of the Easter chocolate very nicely) and make an attempt on Muesli biscuits. No pictures, because we've eaten them all. The Brownies weren't bad - a little dry maybe -  and the biscuits tasted good but were dangerously tooth-breakingly hard towards the end. I need to work out how to make them a little gentler - less syrup, more sugar, maybe.

Over the Easter holidays I wanted to try making sour-dough bread - that was going to be the holiday project.

It was not to be.

So, a couple of weeks later, I'm going to have a go.

Here's the "starter"; a mixture of four, water and fast-action yeast. Now it has to be left, covered with cling film, at room temperature for about 24 hours.

(to be continued...)
