Sourdough Bread

I have been experimenting with sourdough recipes. Over the last month I have made dozen of loaves of bread.  Not all were what I wanted and at least one made it to the compost heap!  But today I have found what I think is the best out come yet.  I was able to make a great sandwich loaf and round loaf too. I will have pictures tomorrow and a recipe recap. 

I will say this, sourdough is not that hard. You just need patience.  (Something I sometimes forget.) But the results are worthwhile!  I have only purchased bread in the supermarket twice in the last month.  I find that the sourdough is cheaper, and taste a LOT better.  I also see that I eat less of the sourdough than the store bought.  I think because it is more satisfying.  No matter what I am hooked on making bread at home.
