I did it! I did it!

I made sourdough. Yes, it’s a funny shape but it tastes delicious and now that I have my own working starter there’s no going back.



I followed a recipe from Rachel Mulligan’s Ferment book. The starter took 5 days to make and this loaf another day but most of that was it just sitting in the fridge overnight before going into the oven.
