Sour Dough

We have a sourdough starter that actually began it's existence with freshly milled whole wheat flour. It tasted delicious! However, in the course of events...the grain mill died....and now it must be contented to live on unbleached white flour. We like it either way. We have sourdough bread or waffles or pancakes several times a week. I have one daughter that doesn't like bread....(have no idea where she came from!), but, she suffers through. My littles (twinkles and Z) LOVE to dip their bread in vinegar and oil..though it has been confessed that they don't really care too much for the oil!
I think it may be snack time....


  1. Dear Keri,

    Oh, my, there is nothing like warm bread...fresh from the oven! Especially with homemade soup or stew cooking on the woodstove...on a cold damp day...can you tell it's raining in Maine today???

    Hope you are all having a wonderful week!

  2. Oh my children love Sourdough...when we went to San Fransisco we took a field trip through the Boudin Sourdough Bread Factory that was a lot of fun ~Is that a loaf you baked in the picture?? that is Beautiful...oh my that is lovely I do not have very good bread making skills even being Italian with all the baking I do my bread needs work!! ~ Enjoy your Bread ~Love Heather

  3. I love sourdough!! Do you have a starter recipe to share? This loaf of bread looks yummy!

  4. Looks and sounds delicious and comforting. Do you have the recipe? Would love to try it. Nothing better than vinegar and olive oil and hot bread.
    Much Love,

  5. Beautiful bread! I'm wanting to learn the secret to sourdough bread, after learning the health benefits of eating fermented foods. I didn't realize until lately that sourdough bread falls into that category, I hope I succeed and can make bread as pretty as yours.

    I do like oil and balsamic vinegar w/ my bread too! Mmmmm mmmmm!

  6. We love sourdough bread. Yours looks delicious!
