Now that the semester is over and the rest of the holidays are upon us, I've gotten back into the kitchen to work on bread. This weekend I restarted my sourdough starter. I had been bad and let the one I had previously die of extreme neglect in the fridge.
So I took my glass canister I use and popped in some yeast and warm wate and let it bloom (yes I know, this is cheating, but I like to cheat. Besides, after a couple weeks it will be using the natural yeast floating around the kitchen). I then added flour and mixed it to make a slurry and put the lid on loosely and set it aside.
After a while it was happily bubbling away and I added more flour and warm water as I need a bit for the bread I am planning on making later this week, along with some sour dough whole wheat waffles for breakfast this weekend.
