sourdough_picnikAs those of you who follow me on Facebook will know, I have been doing rather a lot a baking lately, mostly from the lovely River Cottage Bread book.

So far we have had:  English Muffins, ciabatta, foccacia, hot cross buns, doughnuts, oat cakes (2 types) and now I am on to sour dough.

I have never made sour dough bread before so am very impatient to see what happens to my starter – here it is after 3 days.

I love the idea of some starters having been passed down from generation to generation – imagine all the love, care history and nurturing that is represented by each of those small bowls!
