It bit hard to explain, since my book is in Swedish.
We call this dough saved and not sourdough because it saved in salt.
I got interested in the idea when I read the book and then saw this.


In the next episode they show how to wake it up.


The recipe is so simple, it ask for waken saved dough batter, a little salt, some honey some water, flour a hand of or two of barely and then wheat sifted and it tells you that a good housewife knows to knead the dough well and let it rest to double size and then knock back reform and bake.

Also giving saved dough is good wedding gift to start a new home.

I scored big at the local farm stand this morning. 3 lbs. of nectarines and plums, a cantaloupe, 2 enormous onions (one red and one white), several carrots, 10 red bell peppers, a cuke, and 2 lbs. of tomatoes, all for $13.50.

We spent some time at the local movie theater today. I'll make a report at the movie thread.

Brought home the dresser I bought for Shrek yesterday. I was getting tired of putting the old one back together. This one should do him. Went to Mom and Dad's for a refreshing dish of blackberries. Then found slugs in my pumpkins...I left them a "thank you" of beer. We ate out while in town and now Shrek is putting his clothes in his new dresser. I'm fixing a pot of coffee to go with my blackberries and cream.

Using grapes which are covered in wild yeast, I once made my own leaven and used it to make bread. I kept it going for about six months. Then one time I forgot to leave a piece for the next loaf.

I had a sourdough, happily living here at home, went on vacation and came back to a bowl of mold, it was in the fridge and the person had fed it. Not fun, but its daughter is still living in my friends fridge, could steal some back at some point.

We had the bread this morning and it is lovely, the crust is chewy like I love it.

Everything is covered with wild yeast. And bacteria. And viruses.

It would be really weird if we could see them :crazy:

Just came inside after skimming leaves from the pool. This'll be a routine several times a day until the pool is closed. Still a few days ahead to enjoy it, though.
