Recipe: Sourdough

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

Always wanted to try and bake your own bread?
Sourdough is a bread raised by aerobic yeast (yeasts in the atmosphere) that are captured in a mixture of flour and water and fed regularly to keep them alive. There are many different ways to make a sourdough starter — some people insist on using mineral water to feed the starter, others use water from boiled potatoes to get the starter going. It’s very effective to get a cup of someone else’s starter that you can then feed and grow yourself. Other people have sourdough starters that have been handed down through generations, but there’s no need for all that fuss: it’s incredibly easy to make your own.
