It takes eight days from start to finish to make your first loaf of sourdough bread.

I was a bit apprehensive about tackling it as I'm one of those people who worries when they eat a yogurt past its best before date, and the flour and water mix had to sit out in my kitchen for six days - slowly coming alive with natural yeast. But I couldn't not try it. The fascination of making yeast out of the air was too much of a temptation and, of course, the yeast itself costs nothing!

So after a week of scaring visitors with a bowl of slightly odd smelling, fermenting liquid...


I managed to make my first two loaves of sourdough. And yes, they were delicious!
