The Best Damn Sourdough Bread

This is the best Sourdough Bread I have ever had as well it should since I made it. It may not be for you but if you make this recipe it is sure to be the best.

This is based on the basic recipes I had discovered for making Sourdough and I have worked on my own modifications for this recipe.

Enjoy

  2. Add 250g starter to water and mix well
  3. add flour and mix into a big mess then let it sit for 30 min.
  4. Now add the salt and do the slap and fold for 5 to 10 min until you feel the dough change texture.
  5. On a lightly floured surface do 1/3 fold into ball and let rest 10 min
  6. Flip over a lightly floured surface do 1/3 fold into ball and let rest 10 min

  9. Flip and do 1/3 fold then pull into ball
  10. Place in fermenting basket with well flowered cloth on bottom bowl topside down and then let rise 2 to 3 hours or 1.5+ in size
  11. At this point you can also place it in your fridge over night and continue it in the morning.
  12. Preheat Dutch oven to 500.
  13. Flip bread out of bowel into Dutch over place lid on and place in oven for 20 min (nice trick here is just before closing the lid add a quick spritz from a water sprayer it will improve the spring of the dough)
