I have been excited about sourdough for years, but am just beginning to delve into the wonders of natural leaven. There are a few basic principles and a couple possible methods for caring for and using a sourdough starter, which I am exploring and plan to share more here as I come to understand them better. I have been delighted at how low-maintenance it can be! So far, I have found a reliable spelt sourdough bread, and hope to experiment with a no-knead sourdough next. Even if you aren’t able to find the time to make bread very often, it’s worth keeping a jar of starter going just to enjoy quick, easy, flexible, and scrumptious sourdough pancakes and waffles!
