I can’t seem to get the hang of making bread in the bread machine. I will probably try one more time but if my bread comes out looking like this again…
I have, however, been able to successfully make a few breads from scratch, but I don’t usually have the two or three hours needed to do so. Though I can often find an hour or two to make cookies that look like this…
Josh loves sourdough bread. He also seems to be the breadmaker in the family. So I bought a sourdough starter off Amazon. I am of the mind that you can buy anything off Amazon. Is this a little too convenient? Yes. Does this really bother me? No. If I don’t have to drive somewhere and take my 5 kids with me to buy it then it’s a win-win, right?
I used unbleached all-purpose flour. The mason jar is a quart size one I think.
So tomorrow at 3:30, I have to feed this thing more flour. I asked Josh if we should name it. He, of course, looked at me like I was crazy. I would call it “Thing” anyway. I hope it doesn’t grow a hand.
If all goes well, we will eventually have enough starter for Josh to make some sourdough bread. I am considering not buying bread anymore and just having Josh make it for us! My kids go crazy for homemade bread anyway so they would be very happy about that.
Maybe I will try to make bread this week from scratch just to see if I can. 🙂
