slothel got some sourdough starter (named Herman) as a gift in May and began blogging about it. I was inspired to try to revive Audrey. Much to my surprise, it looked fine and still smelled like bread dough. I fed Audrey twice last weekend.
I baked bread on Friday and I was pleased with how it turned out. The smell of bread baking is so wonderful.
I used a recipe from Eric, at Breadtopia.com, except I started the baking at about 470 degrees (500 scares me) and I used a little less whole wheat flour. I first "found" Eric by searching for sourdough-related videos on YouTube (please pardon my geek-itude). I wish I could share the real bread with all of you out there in Readerland, but these photos will have to suffice.
Thanks, slothel, for inspiring me to try baking sourdough bread again!
