Well I have to admit I am impressed with my little old self. I have overcome my intimidation with sourdough starter, at least I think I have.
I used a starter recipe I found on Allrecipes.com and let it sit for about 5 days, stirring once a day. I decided to try it today day 6, so I took out what I needed and feed the starter and it is happily sitting on the counter growing again. I will put it in the refrigerator tomorrow if I do not use anymore of it on Sunday.
I found this recipe for Plain and Simple Sourdough Bread on Allrecipes.com. It bakes the bread in the machine but I just used the dough cycle and baked it in a 375 degree oven for about 35 minutes.
This recipe is simple and too the point and boy is it ever good. This bread tastes just like really good sourdough, crunchy outside and chewie inside.
Here is a lovely photo of the finished product and below it is a picture of my sourdough starter before I used some of it.

This bread is just great and I am glad I found a new adventure to go on. I hope you will follow along with me.
Hmm next I think sourdough pancakes or biscuits. Its all about the carbs !!!
