Raising Your Own Yeast Babies

I am a lazy baker.  Aside from the fact that I haven’t made a baked loaf of anything in several weeks is testament to that.  Oh, I have recipes, but with our impending move I just don’t have the time I need to do it properly.

I feel even lazier when I read posts like this one on Slashfood talking about starting your very own sourdough starter.  I long to try it, but until we’re moved into our own place, I’m pretty sure our respective families would disown us and toss the yeast starter out as soon as there was the slightest hint of a sour smell.

But soon, my precious yeast army….soon.

    If you haven’t seen this cookbook, you must find a copy and try the recipes. I have just opted for the basic boule, and have only had a dough percolating for a week. But, the book promises that there are ways to increase the sour bite of the dough. Even if that doesn’t pan out, it is just a brilliant little gem of a book. I have the library’s copy now and am waiting somewhat impatiently for my own copy to arrive so that I can get it in the kitchen and really get messy.
