The bread was a total failure!
Sorry, I was too embarrased to take a picture!
The dough worked up lovely
but it failed to rise!
I guess there wasn't enough fermenting
taking place in the starter.
The few people I have talked with
have not had success with making a
So, when my nose gets back in joint
I will try once again!
But, this venture was not
all in vain ~
I baked up the 'unrisen' dough
and cut it up and soaked it with some water
and fed it along with some stale
store bought bread to my chickens
and guess what?! They loved the sourdough best!
They wouldn't even touch the store bought.
And I even saw a crow or two fly by with
a nice fat piece in their beak!
I think I will try that starter again in a day or so!
