Not only cards getting made around here. I've been craving sourdough bread.
So easy to make: cook 2 potatoes, use water from cooking and add more water to make 2 cups, while still warm, add 1 pkg. yeast, 1 tbsp. sugar and stir. Mash the potatoes until smooth and add to yeast mix. Stand in a warm place (I left mine on the counter) for 2-3 days, stir occasionally, cover loosely with plastic wrap. After 2 days (couldn't wait 3) I mixed in 2 cups flour and let stand over night.
Then you take 2 cups of starter, add 1 tbsp. sugar, 1 tsp. salt, 3 tbsp. melted marg, 2-3 cups of flour and knead 10 minutes. Place in bowl to rise, punch down twice. Bake at 400 for 15 min. and then at 375 for 25 minutes until golden brown. It's done when you knock on it and it sounds hollow.
To replenish starter: for each cup of starter used, add: 1 cup of warm water, 1 cup of flour, 1 tbsp. sugar. Leave at room temp. a few hours, then refrigerate.
This recipe made two round loaves and is so yummy!
Thanks for looking :)
