Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 teaspoon red star yeast
2 1/3 cups bread flour
1/4 cup rye flour
1 tablespoon lecithin granules
1 tablespoon gluten
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dill weed (dried)
1 teaspoon dried onion flakes
1/2 cup water
1 cup sourdough starter*

I just realized that I never added any sugar or dry milk. It doesn't seem
to miss them. Next time I'll add more dill and onion. The jars were
almost empty when my baking fit struck me, so I went with what I had.

I baked it on the regular bake cycle. It rose almost to the top of the
pan and is a lovely golden color. Tastes pretty good, too.

*Starter: 2c all purpose flour, 2 c warm water, 1 pk yeast. Combined and


left in oven all night with the light on. It doesn't have a name yet.
Would "Bubbles" be too optimistic?

-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup sourdough starter
2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups warm water
3 3/4 c flour -- (3 3/4 to 4 1/4)
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Cold water Mix 1 st 3 ingreds. in 3 qt. glass bowl with wooden spoon
until smooth. Cover; let stand in warm, draft-free place for 8 hours. Add
3-3/4 C flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and oil to the mixture in bowl.
Stir with wooden spoon until smooth and flour is completely absorbed.
(Dough should be just firm enough to gather into a ball. If necessary, add
remaining 1/2 C flour gradually, stirring until all flour is absorbed.)
Turn dough onto heavily floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic,
about 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl; turn greased side up. Cover; let
rise in warm place until double, about 1-1/2 hours. (Dough is ready if
indentation remains when touched.) Punch dough down; divide into halves.
Shape each half into a round, slightly flat loaf. Do not tear dough by
pulling. Place loaves in opposite corners of greased cookie sheet. Make
three 1/4" deep slashes in each loaf. Let rise until double, about 45
minutes. Heat oven to 375. Brush loaves with cold water. Place cookie
sheet in center of oven; it should not touch the sides of the oven. Bake,
brushing occasionally with water, until loaves sound hollow when tapped,
about 50 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets; cool on wire racks.

Be sure to let dough rise completely both times - it might take longer
than the estimated times given.

Cheryl's Sourdough Starter

Recipe By : cheryl gavard


Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup water
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon white vinegar

Mix all together, and let sit on your counter for 3 days with a loose
fitting lid or cover with Saran Wrap. On the third day stir it well. Let
sit for two more days. Some recipes call for adding 1 packet of yeast that
has been dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water on the fifth day. It sort of
speeds up the process of it getting sour. If you do add it, then let the
mix sit out for at least one more week, stirring it every day. If you
don't add it, you still have to let it sit out a week, but, it may not be
as sour the first few times you use it. Store starter in the fridge. It
will separate, into two parts, a darkish liquid on the top ~ this is
normal. Before you use it, stir the liquid back into the bottom part.
ALWAYS use a wooden or plastic spoon. NEVER use metal. Always use glass,
ceramic or plastic bowls...NEVER metal. To use: Pour out the amount
needed. For 1/2 cup starter used, feed with 1/2 cup flour and 1 teaspoon
sugar. Stir in well. Don't worry about flour lumps etc. Let sit out on the
counter with a loose lid overnight! Stir, return to refrigerator.
(According to Cheryl & Connie, you have to wait at least 3 or 4 days
between used!) IF you don't use within a week, feed starter 1 teaspoon
sugar, stir in and return to fridge. It's NOT that hard...and of all the
starters I've used, this one so far has been the best. Thanks Cheryl and
Connie! Repost by SALLIE KRATZ NXMB21A 4/24/93 Food Forum MM Format by

Classic Sourdough Bread

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup sourdough starter
1 1/3 cups warm water
5 c all-purpose flour or -- a combination of (5
to 6)
and whole -- wheat flours
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda -- cornmeal to sprinkle

THE SPONGE:

Pour 1 c of starter into a large ceramic mixing bowl. Feed and then
refrigerate the remainder. Add to the starter in the mixing bowl, the warm
water and about 3 c of flour. Beat vigorously with a spoon or wire whisk.
Cover this sponge with plastic wrap and put it aside to work. This time
period can be very flexible, but allow at least 2 hours and as many as 24.
The longer it has, the more yeast there will be for the second rise and
the more pronounced the sour flavor of the bread will be.

THE DOUGH:

After sponge has bubbled and expanded, remove plastic wrap. Blend salt,
sugar and baking soda into 2 c of flour. Mix this into sponge with large
spoon. When dough begins to hold together, turn it out onto floured board
and knead it for 3 or 4 minutes. Add flour as needed to make a fairly
stiff dough. Give the dough a rest and clean the bowl. Continue kneading
for another 3 or 4 minutes. Place the dough back in the bowl turning it to
grease the top. Cover and let rise for 2 to 4 hours.If you want, you can
skip the second rise in the bowl and proceed directly to the next step.

SHAPING AND BAKING THE LOAVES:

Knock down the dough and shape it into 2 long loaves. Place them on a
cornmeal sprinkled cookie sheet, cover and let them rise for another 2
hours or so.Toward the end of the rising period, preheat your oven to 450F
and begin heating a kettle of water on your stove. Just before you put
them in the oven, slash the tops of your loaves diagonally with a knife
1/4" deep every two inches and brush with cold water.Place a baking pan on
the oven bottom and put in 3 or 4 cups of boiling water. Put the loaves on
the rack over the steaming water, close the oven and bake for about 25
minutes.

You will find that your sourdough breads will have more "tang" and will
rise higher in the BM if you follow this procedure: * Remove a cup )or
more) of your starter from the fridge and bring to room temp. * Feed with
1 cup flour and 1 cup (or slightly less) water * Let the starter do its
thing. It will become bubbly and foamy. Watch for its 'peak'. This usually
occurs 8 to 10 hours after feeding. It is best to keep the starter warm
(75 to 85 degrees). If it cold out, leave it in the oven with the light
turned on! * Make your bread during the peak...while the starter is VERY
active. * Dump the unused starter back into the mother pot. Following this
method, you can even make sourdough in the b/m without yeast. Really!
*Variation: Separate your starter into two batches. Create a "beer"
starter with one batch. You will feed this pot with flat beer and flour
instead of water and flour. A very unique and delicious taste! * To create
your own sourdough recipe: Substitute 7/8 cup start for 1 cup liquid
Reduce flour by 1/4 to 1/2 cup

King Arthur Flour - Sourdough Starter Tips 1

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :

-------- ------------ --------------------------------
***** NONE *****

The following information comes from King Arthur Flour "A Short Course in
Cooking With & Keeping the Elusive Wild Yeast".

What is a Sourdough Starter? "A sourdough starter is a wild yeast living


in a batter of flour and liquid. Yeasts are microscopic fungi related
distantly to mushrooms. There are many varieties of these tiny organisms
around us everywhere. Wild yeasts are rugged individualists which can
withstand the most extreme of circumstances. Some will make delicious
loaves of bread; others will create yogurt and cheese out of milk; still
others will turn the juices of grains and fruit into beer and wine."
"Active dry yeast, the kind we can buy in packets at our grocer's, is a
domesticated descendant of these wild relatives, one which has been grown
for flavor, speed of growth and predictability. But domestic yeasts are
much more fragile and can't be grown at home without eventually reverting
to their original wild state." "If you can imagine a world without any
packets of active dry yeast, you can imagine how important your sourdough
starter would be to you. Without it, you would be doomed to some pretty
awful eating. It is no wonder that sourdough starters were treasured,
fought over, and carried to all ends of the earth. To the early
prospectors, it was such a valued possession (almost more than the gold
they were seeking), that they slept with it on frigid winter nights to
keep it from freezing. (Ironically, freezing won't kill a sourdough
starter although too much heat will.)" Fermentation (or the Microscopic
Magic of Yeast): "As we mentioned above, yeast is a microscopic fungus.
As it feeds on the natural sugars in grain, it multiplies and gives off
carbon dioxide (just as we do when we breathe). This invisible activity of
yeast is called fermentation. When you make bread with wheat, by kneading
the long elastic strands of wheat protein (called gluten) into an elastic
mesh, you create traps for these carbon dioxide bubbles causing the dough
to expand as if it contained a million tiny balloons."

(Continued) How to Feed & Care for Your Sourdough Starter:

"Keeping a sourdough starter is somewhat like having a pet because it


needs to be fed and cared for. But its requirements are simple and not
time consuming. Baking with sourdough is also a simple process. All it
takes is a little planning and timing. The results are so satisfying,
you'll grow to treasure your invisible pet the way our ancestors did."
"When you receive your starter, refrigerate it if you don't intend to feed
it immediately (at any rate, starter should be fed as soon as possible
after you receive it). To feed it for the first time, snip off a corner of
the plastic bag and squeeze the starter into a glass or ceramic bowl (not
metal). Stir in 3 cups of lukewarm water (what feels comfortable on your
wrist) and 3 cups of unbleached all-purpose flour. Mix until it's well
blended and the consistency of pancake batter. Let the replenished starter
sit at room temperature for at least 12 hours to give the yeast a chance
to multiply and become active before you put it in the refrigerator.
Ordinarily you would feed your starter when you remove some to bake with
it. A good rule of thumb is to replenish it every two weeks or so,
preferably because you made a wonderful loaf of sourdough bread, a stack
of pancakes or a delicious sourdough cake." (This previous paragraph is
for those people who have ordered King Arthur's Sourdough Starter from
their ca talog.) "During the time the starter is stored in the
refrigerator, it becomes relatively dormant which is why it can survive so
long with so little attention. You'll find that a clear, amber colored
liquid will accumulate on the surface of the starter. This liquid contains
12% to 14% alcohol." "When yeast is in contact with air, it produces
carbon dioxide; when it's not, it produces alcohol. When you blend the
alcohol back into the starter, it helps produce the unique flavor you find
in good sourdough breads. For milder flavor, you can pour off some of the
alcohol if you wish although this will thicken the starter requiring a bit
more liquid to return it to its "pancake batter" consistency. (To
"sweeten" a starter in another way, see Troubleshooting which follows.)
The alcohol itself dissipates during the baking process." (Continued)

(CONTINUED) Storing Your Starter:

"Once your sourdough pet is cold and relatively dormant, it can survive
quite a long time between "feedings." It is certainly not as demanding as
children, or more traditional pets, but it isn't happy just sitting for
months on end like a packet of commercially dried yeast either."
"Freezing: You may be able to ignore your starter for a month or even
much longer, but if you know you're going to be away for a time, you can
store it (unlike children or pets) in the freezer. You may want to
transfer it to a plastic container first as it will expand as it freezes.
When you are ready to use it again, give it a day to revive, feed it a
good meal, give it another day to build up an armada of fresh, new wild
siblings and it will be ready to go to work." "Drying: An alternative
storage method is to dry your starter by spreading it out on a piece of
heavy plastic wrap or waxed paper. Once it's dry, crumble it up and put it
in an airtight container. Store it some place cool, or, to be safe, in the
freezer. To reach pivot the dried starter, grind it into small particles
with a hand cranked grinder, a blender or a food processor. Pour 1 to 1
1/2 cups of warm water (what feels comfortable on your wrist) into a glass
or ceramic bowl. Stir in and dissolve a tablespoon of sugar or honey. This
isn't necessary but it gives the yeast an easy "first course." Blend in
an equal amount of flour and dried starter. Cover the bowl with plastic
wrap and watch for small telltale bubbles which should begin to appear on
the surface within a few hours. Once you see them you'll know it's alive
and well. Let it continue to feed and grow for a further 12 hours before
you cover and refrigerate it." How to Remove Some Starter for Baking:

"With a spoon or wire whisk, blend the liquid back into the starter and
then measure out the quantity required by your recipe. Replace the amount
taken with equal amounts of flour and water. Since many recipes are based
on using 1 cup of starter, you would return to your starter pot, 1 cup of
flour and 1 cup of water. (This actually makes 1 1/3 cups more starter but
you can adjust the amount whenever you want.) As you did when you first
fed your starter, let it sit at room temperature for at least 12 hours to
give the yeast a chance to "feed" and multiply before you chill it again."

(CONTINUED) TROUBLESHOOTING Feeding Without Baking: "If you have been


busy or away, you can always feed your starter without baking anything.
Stir the mixture together, take out and discard 1 cup of starter and
replenish as above, stirring in 1 cup water and 1 cup flour. (Or instead
of discarding the starter you removed, ask a neighbor if he or she would
be interested in adopting a starter of his/her very own.) Let the
resuscitated mixture sit at room temperature for 12 hours or so before you
return it to the refrigerator." Treating a "Sluggish" Starter: "If you
feel that your starter is just not "up to snuff," dissolve a teaspoon of
yeast in the cup of water you mix into the starter when you feed it. (If
you live in an area where water is chlorinated, let some sit out overnight
to allow the chlorine to dissipate to preclude any interference with the
development of the sourdough micro-organisms)." Sweetening a Starter:
"If your starter becomes too sour, take out 1 cup, dispose of the
remainder, and ad d 2 cups of each of flour and water to refreshen it."
Increasing Your Starter: "If you want to grow a large amount of starter
to give some to a friend or to do a lot of baking, simply increase the
amount you feed it." Resuscitating a Neglected Starter: "If your
sourdough starter has sat in the refrigerator months beyond the point of
health, give it a fighting chance for survival before you throw it out. A
little warmth and a good meal of strong, high energy carbohydrates may be
all it needs to get it off and running again." "The layer of liquid on
the surface will probably be very dark, making it look as if the starter
must surely have expired. Quell your fear, wrestle the top off the jar and
give it a sniff. If it smells the way it should, though exceptionally
sour, it may just be sitting there in a dormant state waiting to be fed.
The only way to know is to give it a meal." "Blend it back together and
pour it into a glass or ceramic bowl. (Take this opportunity to give its
jar a good wash.) As the st arter will probably be quite thin, mix in 2
cups of flour and 1 cup of water to nourish and thicken it. Leave the bowl
out on the counter where it will be warm and visible." (Continued)

(CONTINUED) "In a couple of hours you may see tiny bubbles appear on the
surface. If so, cheer your brew on by keeping it warm and covered
overnight. In the morning, celebrate by making sourdough pancakes (which
you'll find ...in our "King Arthur Flour 200th Anniversary Cookbook").
They are delicious and quick. Give the remaining starter another feeding,
let it sit for 12 more hours to ensure its reawakened vigor before you
tuck it back in the frig. Then quietly heave a sigh of relief and
congratulate yourself on your rescue." How to Decide if You Need to Start
Over (groan):

"If your sourdough begins to mold or develop a peculiar color or odor


instead of a "clean, sour aroma," give a sigh, throw it out and, if you're
patient, start again. Along with the vital yeasts, you may have
inadvertently nurtured a strain of bacteria that will not be wonderful in
food. This happens very infrequently so don't let this possibility
dissuade you from a sourdough adventure." Starter Variations:

"Here are some variations on the basic flour/liquid/yeast combination


that will produce sourdough starters with different personalities.

*Substitute 1 cup of stone ground whole wheat flour for 1 of the


unbleached all-purpose flour.

*For tap water, substitute water from cooking potatoes. It contains


nutrients which any kind of yeast loves and along with making the yeast
happy, it creates great flavor in bread.

*Substitute buttermilk for tap water.

Categories :
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
5/8 cup water -- (for welbilt/dak no
water needed)
1 cup sourdough starter
3 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons red star yeast -- (except for
machines -- use 4 ts)
cornmeal -- (optional)

Recipe for 1.5 lb loaf.

For a mild sourdough: Place all ingredients except cornmeal in pan,


select Dough setting and press Start.
For the sourest sourdough: In a medium bowl, combine the water, starter
(room temp), and half of the flour. Cover and let stand in a warm place
until very sour and bubbly, from 24 to 48 hours. Then combine mixture with
the rest of the ingredients except cornmeal in pan. Select Dough setting
and press Start. When dough has risen long enough the machine will beep.
Turn off bread machine, remove bread pan and turn out dough on floured
countertop or cutting board. Shape dough into one 12" oblong loaf or one
large round loaf or two 18" thin baguettes or eight french rolls.

Place loaf (loaves) on a baking sheet that is well greased or sprinkled


with cornmeal. With a sharp knife or razor blade, slash the rolls or
baguettes straight down the center about 1/2" deep. On the oblong loaf,
make 3 diagonal slashes. On the round loaf, slash and X or # on top. Let
rise in warm oven 30-45 minutes until doubled. (Hint: to warm oven
slightly, turn oven on Warm for 2 minutes, then turn it off, and place
covered dough in oven to rise. Remove pan from oven to preheat it)
Preheat oven to 400F. With a plant mister, mist each loaf with water (or
brush with water). Bake 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown, misting with
water twice more at 5-minute intervals. Remove from oven, cool on wire
racks. To preserve crisp crust, do not store in plastic wrap or bags.
Bread can be loosely covered or left out for up to 2 days before it dries
out completely.

Take out as many as needed and thaw and put sugar on or eat plain.

unbleached flour
potato water

Boil some potatoes for supper, save the potato water, and use it lukewarm
with enough unbleached flour to make a thick batter. without yeast. This
is a good way to make it in camp, where you have no yeast available and
want fast results. This is also the way most farm girls made it in the
olden days. Let stand a day or so, or until it smells right.

-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup skim or lowfat milk
3 tablespoons yogurt -- plain or low-fat

Warm a 1 1/2 quart glass, ceramic, rigid plastic, or stainless steel


container by filling it with hot water and letting it stand for several
minutes; wipe dry. Heat 1 cup skim or lo-fat milk to 90-100 on a
thermometer. Remove from heat and stir in 3 tablespoons plain unflavored,
lo-fat yogurt. Pour into warm container, cover tightly, and let stand in a
warm place (80 - 100 ). After 18 to 24 hours, starter should be about the
consistency of yogurt (a curd forms and mixture does not flow readily when
container is slightly tilted). During this time, if some clear liquid
rises to top of milk, simply stir it back in. However, if liquid has
turned light pink, it indicates that the milk is beginning to break down;
discard and try again. After a curd has formed, gradually stir 1 cup all
purpose flour into starter until smooth. Cover tightly and let stand in a
warm place (80 - 100 ) until mixture is full of bubbles and has a good
sour smell; this takes 2 to 5 days. During this time if clear liquid
forms, stir it back into starter. /But if liquid turns pink, spoon out and
discard all but 1/4 cup starter; thin blend in a mixture of 1 cup each
warm milk (90 - 100 ) and flour. Cover tightly and let stand in warm place
until bubbly and sour smelling; then it is ready to use. To store, cover
and refrigerate. Makes about 1 1/2 cups starter. To maintain an ample
supply, replenish your starter every time you use it. Do this by adding a
mixture of 1/2 cup each warm milk (90 - 100 ) and flour. Cover and let
stand in a warm place for several hours or until next day; mixture should
be full of bubbles again. Store covered in refrigerator. For consistent
flavor, continue using the same type of milk you originally used. Always
let your starter come to room temperature before using it; this takes 4 to
6 hours. If you plan to bake in the morning, leave it out the night
before. If you bake regularly- about once a week - the starter should keep
lively and active. You can check your starter occasionally to see if its
active by spooning out about 1/4 cup of the starter and mixing it with 1/2
cup each warm milk (90 - 100 ) and flour. Cover and let stand in a warm
spot. Check often; it should bubble again in 4 to 8 hours. You can combine
this mixture with the original starter after the test. If you don't bake
often, its best to discard about half your starter and replenish it with
warm milk and flour about every 2 months to keep it active. The feel of
dough containing sourdough starter is slightly tacky when lightly touched.

Sunset Sourdough Starter

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup nonfat or lowfat milk
2 tablespoons lowfat regular plain yogurt
1 cup flour

Heat 1 cup nonfat or lowfat milk to 90-100 F (nonfat milk gives the most
tang, whole milk the least). Remove from heat and stir in 2 T freshly
opened lowfat or regular plain yogurt (lowfat gives the tangiest flavor).

Pour mixture into a warmed (rinse with hot water for several minutes) 1
1/2 qt container, cover tightly, and let stand in a warm place at 80-100
F. (Above 110 F, the bacteria may be killed; below 70 F, the bacteria
don't grow well.) After 18-24 hrs, starter should be about the
consistency of yogurt. If some clear liquid rises to the top, simply stir
it back in. However, if liquid is light pink in color, milk is beginning
to break down; discard and begin again.

After a curd has formed, gradually stir one cup flour into starter until
smoothly blended. Cover tightly and let stand in a warm place (80-100 F
is ideal) until mixture is full of bubbles and has a good sour smell; this
takes 2-5 days.

During this time, if clear liquid forms, stir it back into the starter.
But if liquid turns pink, spoon out and discard all but 1/4 cup of
starter, then blend in a mixture of 1 cup of lukewarm milk (90-100 F) and
1 cup flour. Cover tightly and let stand again in a warm place until
bubble and sour smelling. Use. Or, cover and store in refrigerator.

To maintain your supply, each time you use 1 cup of starter, replenish it
with 1 cup lukewarm (90-100 F) milk and 1 cup flour. Cover and let stand
in a warm place until mixture is bubbly again, several hours or until next
day. Then cover and refrigerate until the next use. Before using starter,
always let it warm to room temperature; this takes 4-6 hrs. If you want to
bake in the morning, leave the starter out the night before.

Whole Wheat Sourdough

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 teaspoons yeast
2 cups whole wheat bread flour
1 1/3 cups unbleached bread flour
2 tablespoons buttermilk powder
2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten
2 tablespoons lecithin
2 teaspoons salt -- lite
2 teaspoons wheat germ
1/2 teaspoon ginger
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup whole wheat sourdough -- (you
1 cup water -- (i use bottled h2o)
1/2 margarine -- room temp.

I used the whole wheat starter and experimented with your whole wheat
bread recipe in the DAK today. It turned out great. Basically, I just
halved your recipe and added a few things. My DAK is a 3 cup flour model,
is yours? If I'm using whole wheat or rye flour, I can add more flour
because it doesn't rise as much. Also, whenever I use whole wheat, etc. I
add vital wheat gluten and lecithin to aid elasticity and to help it rise.
This is what I put in the DAK and the order I used: Turn the light/dark
setting to 12 o'clock and set the menu to Sweet Bread (the auto. one, not
the manual one) Later, at the beeps, I added 3/4 c. pecans (didn't have
walnuts on hand). I usually add large pieces since they are kind of cut up
by the B/M while knead ing. We can keep experimenting with this....let me
know if you try it and what you add or subtract. Have you ever added
raisins, oatmeal or any kind of seeds? The B/M gives me the lazy way out,
and I wanted to see what it would do in it. Thanks so much for taking
precious time to post the recipe. P.S. I have some of the beer s/d
starter to give you when we get together, but the whole wheat starter is
GREAT!. Regards, 08/21 11:14 P.M. JUDY/NC PJXG05A
