Sourdough lesson


I've been spreading the sourdough word and teaching one of my sisters how to make sourdough bread. We started on Friday with some of my Derbyshire/San Francisco starter, and mixed the loaf and shaped it ready for baking on Saturday. Well, what a success it was. It came out of the banneton with out any problems and into to the preheated oven with a tray of boiling water at the bottom for plenty of steam. We then sat in front of the oven window watching it rise whilst chatting and drinking coffee. We were so excited when it grew and grew - it's the simple things in life :D
