I have recently started making sourdough bread again and we are sure enjoying it. I started with a basic sourdough recipe that uses just 5 ingredients - flour, sugar, yeast, salt and water.
It sits on the counter to ferment for a few days and then after that it is easy to replenish it and use as needed. I am storing mine in a container that came with a lid - we drilled a small hole in the lid and it works great.
We had Sourdough cranberry pancakes for breakfast one morning - they were really good - I used both a can of cranberry sauce and a bag of fresh cranberries, which are quite tart. We served them with cream cheese and syrup and added some shredded cheddar cheese and real bacon bits to the top and they were greatly enjoyed. I will have to remember to take more pictures. :)
There is a good cookbook, called Sourdough Cookery by Rita Davenport that has many recipes for sourdough. I used the basic recipe from this book to start, but used my regular bread recipe that I always use and changed it to sourdough. The pancakes were the same - no recipe really, just added ingredients until it looked good and made them.
I plan to experiment more with the sourdough and add to other things. Maybe I will even try some of the recipes in the book. :) If you are interested, the book can be bought through Amazon or it may even be at your local library....or there are probably many sourdough recipes on line. I bought this book at a garage sale and am glad to have it in my library even though I only used it to start the starter.
It is a great time of year to make more bread - so nice to have it baking and making the house smell so lovely.
