    I love how you make things simple and enjoyable!

    I tried this recipe today and it was my first artisan style sourdough loaf! It turned out beautiful. Thank you Rose! Keep doing what you are doing and God bless!

  2. Love the way you calm all the rhetoric down around making sourdough. I am NEW to this and have my starter on day 3- doing well with rising and bubbling. I wonder if you can clearify for me how to make the sourdough bread more sour. there are so many thoughts and way on this but I trust you! Is it the starter??? the dough rising??? add vinegar??? Thank you

    1. It’s a couple of things. First, the more mature the starter the more flavor it will give to the bread. But, even more important is the temperature and length of time you allow the dough to ferment or rise. The cooler and longer you ferment the dough, the more sour it will be. The warmer and quicker rise will have much less sourdough flavor. I recommend if you want a really sour loaf is to do the first rise and then when you shape it for the second rise, put it in the fridge for up to a week. When you are ready you can take it out and bake it. The longer in the fridge, the more sour.

      1. wow thank you so much. I wouldnt have thought it would rise that long in the fridge without dying. I will try it!
