Welcome to the October round of The Scary Adventure. Check out what The Scary Adventure is here if you’re feeling lost.
Fall is for soups, soups go in bread bowls, sourdough bread bowls are the only bread bowls you should ever use, homemade bread is always better.
Ok, now we know why we have to try to make our own sourdough bread bowls in fall. After googling/pinteresting (which is not yet a word, but it might as well be with how often I’m on that site), I have rounded up a few great resources for attempting sourdough.
First off, the starter. Starter will apparently last forever. I don’t know if I really believe that because, ya know, bacteria… but it sounds pretty cool. I’d love to be an old lady that lived a wonderful bread-filled life and give all my beautiful grandbabies sourdough starter from all the way back in 2013 that always makes the BEST sourdough. Only thing is, I have to actually attempt sourdough to do that.
This resource has pictures. They’re all a little bit yellow-ish, but they definitely help with getting the idea down. https://cooklikeyourgrandmother.com/2008/09/how-to-make-sourdough-bread-bowls/
This resource was really popular. A lot of sourdough posts link back to this blog in one way or another. They have recipes for both the starter and the dough itself. They have lots of tips, notes, and good detail. https://www.halfbakedharvest.com/sourdough-bread-bowls/
This resource details the sourdough starter’s evolution. I also love the name of the site. I’ve linked day 8 because it has links to all the other days. I like perusing this one. https://www.thekitchenwhisperer.net/2012/02/18/sourdough-starter-recap/
As I go along, I’ll update you about the progress (and I’ll do better than I did with September…I did another soufflé, but I still need to post about it). If you have any tips, please let me know. I love helpful tips!
