Starting a sourdough

One of my targets this year is to focus on one thing every week, that way at the end of the year, hopefully I would of done 52 things to to help me achieve my targets for the year.

My target for this week was starting a sourdough starter. I’ve wanted to make one for a long long time, the only thing stopping me was that I didn’t know whether I would be able to keep it going, well with my added motivation this year I know I’ll be keeping it going for a long time. I’m also wanting to make weekly bread so sourdough would be a great bread to have under my belt.

The “recipe” I used is a Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall one which just consisted of 100g flour and mixing with water to make a batter. I sadly after the fact realized my jar is way too big so doubled the 100g to 200g and mixed it with 250ml water. We will see how it goes as I might be tempted to put it into a small jar.

Just need to remember to feed it everyday now! I’ll give an update after a week to see how it’s doing.

    This is something I have never had a go at, maybe I should. I’ll follow how yours goes first I think 😉

    I’ve added you to the sidebar on my new blog, looking forward to following your progress over this year, we have both set ourselves interesting challenges. Good luck with yours.
