sourdough everything

this pandemic has birthed bakers everywhere, and it’s amazing to see good rising out of a crumby situation. ( *wink* see what i did there?)

aside from replying to the deluge of messages asking how we are doing as a family (thank you for that! an update to follow soon), i also spend my endless quarantine hours responding to messages about sourdough baking.

i think i’ve tried every recipe on the internet over the last year +, and i have composted dozens of lumps of “bread” in my sourdough experiments. there’s a shortage of flour out there (so i hear), so i thought i’d throw down a list of tried and true recipes for anyone who is interested in not wasting precious resources:

first, how to:

second, don’t throw away the poorly named “discard”:

these onion fritters are amazing (and you can bake them at 450° for :15, flipping halfway if you’re trying to avoid gaining the covid 19):

i almost always have jars of this recipe made up and in the fridge. the kids wake up and make themselves pancakes for breakfast/lunchfast:

what is life without bread? i rotate through these two recipes:

and these bagels:

and finally, these two recipes to satisfy my sweet tooth. both of these double as breakfast foods:

hope this list helps all of the sourdough (or aspiring sourdough) bakers out there! if you have a faithful recipe that you’re willing to share, please do!
