Sourdough Peasant Bread Recipe

Step 1

This is for the medium sized loaf which, depending on how active my starter is at the moment, will rise to the top of my Hitachi B101.

Step 2

If I want an extra sour loaf, I will use the starter two or three days after feeding. This produces a shorter loaf with a heavier texture.

Step 3

For a light and fluffy loaf, I feed the starter first, then let it sit on the counter for 8 to 10 hours before using. I make sure it is very foamy when I put it in the B/M.
