In pursuit of the healthy diet, Mum has been experimenting with sourdough starter (from Cultures for Health) in order to make healthier bread. In case you don't know much about the health benefits of sourdough, let me just say that its better for the digestion as it has already broken down important nutrients that the body needs, as opposed to yeast bread that is harder on the body for many different reasons. But lets not get into the science of it just now.
Mum used an easier, less knead recipe by Serene from Above Rubies. Here's the link to the video if your interested: part one and part two.
Here's a picture of the process:
Then, after baking it for an hour at 350 degrees, we were able to enjoy a delicious piece if fresh, truly sour, and healthy, sourdough bread. A success! It was soft and moist except for the crunchy outer crust. Perfect! I loved the stronger flavor compared to your average yeast bread. Great for sandwiches, I'm sure.
Until next time...
