I've taken the next step and now I am fermenting my food.
I made a sourdough starter.
It doesn't look like much:
But it is the coolest thing I've done this week.
Following the directions over at Peas and Thank You I was able to flawlessly accomplish a weeks worth of stirring and feeding my sourdough baby and at the end of the 6 day fermenting period I was able to produce this:
Which turned into this little bundle of joy:
I do have to put out there that I am not a fan of sourdough bread at all.
In fact I avoid it.
You may ask then why did I make the starter?
Well I just wanted to see if I could do it.
And I am glad that I did as the flavor of this bread only has a mild sour flavor.
By using the whole wheat flavor the bread has a more nutty flavor.
Completely delicious with a little slathering of Earth Balance, or you do what I did and make it into vegan French toast (however mine was greedily consumed by my 4 year old...oh well we mom's just have to share).
I can't wait to try more things with my starter. I am thinking muffins or pancakes are next.
What do you think? What would you use sourdough for?
I hope you all are having a wonderful Tuesday. Be sure to enter to win a case of Chobani Champions (here) that giveaway is going on till tomorrow (Wednesday the 4th).
