My sourdough experience

I have decided to try and make sourdough. It is quite a learning curve and the more you find out about it, the more it gets confusing. There is so much information out there.  I joined some facebook groups but I think I drove them nuts asking questions all the time.

First thing you need to do is make a starter which is water and flour and you let it rest, feed it daily and ferment. It took me 2 weeks to get my starter going and looking bubbly enough. 

Last week end I made my first bread. Not really impressive, very flat and heavy and sooooo dark. I didn't realie that T80 flour here in France would give such a dark loaf.  The bottom was pretty burnt as well, though that seems to be normal.

While getting the blade out of the protective covering to slash the dough I managed to slice my thumb. Not too deep thank goodness but enough to really hurt. As soon as it is healed though I will try again, this time with some lighter flour.

This is what a starter looks like. 
If any of you would like to know more about baking this way, let me know.

Thanks to all that read my blog, I appreciate it.
