Here is my second attempt at baking sourdough bread.
This one is “Number 2a.”
It’s “2a” because I baked another loaf at the same time (so the other one is 2b).
I added turmeric per my hubby’s request, and it definitely shows its color.
I’m still so in love with this rustic look of sourdough.
Now you can really see the beautiful golden color.
I was interested in sourdough bread, and when Tartine bakery published their bread book, I was so close to trying it.
But then it took me almost a decade before I finally made my own sourdough starter.
(I didn’t use Tartine’s instructions for my starter or bread; Ten years ago I was able to look at the book from the libary after waiting for a couple of months, but their instructions werer too long and too overwhelming to me.)
If you are thinking about it, do it.
It’s not as hard as you think, and the whole experience from raising my baby starter to actually baking bread has been so amazing.
