Today is National Sourdough Bread Day. We just love the excuse to get out the sourdough starter. This is the basic sourdough bread recipe that I have used for years. It is easy enough for a first timer to experiment with. Just remember to give yourself a few days to create the homemade sourdough first.
Don't be fooled into spending a ton of money for a *traditional* starter. Once you start making your own, the wild yeast in YOUR home will change that starter into the same sort of thing you will make from scratch. Also, if your sourdough seems too tangy, add a pinch of baking soda to tame it.
