sourdough adventures

i’m about to make my first sourdough bread. it seems like it should be pretty easy to make bread, though i’ve never done it before. i looked up some recipes for sourdough bread and it seems simple enough, but then there’s this mysterious ingredient “sourdough starter”.

i looked up some recipes for sourdough starter and it turns out that the sourdough starter is much like a pet. it requires great care, feeding, and warmth. so i started the sourdough starter and it takes about 2 days to make the starter.

the initial ingredients have been mixed and i’m storing it in a warm place for the yeast to take hold and do its thing. 2 more days to go!
