Introducing -- Lucky

I know that no one else is as excited about this as I am, but I decided to post this anyway.  It is day 4 in the life of my new seed culture, from which I'm going to begin my sourdough starter.  I was thrilled when I went to retrieve Lucky this morning and this is what he looked like at 9am:

So if you've been hesitant to try this process, you needn't be.  I'm still quite inexperienced at this bread baking thing and I was able to do this in the middle of March.  I thought that I would have difficulties, being that it's still rather chilly outside and in.  I'm following the guidelines in Peter Reinhart's "Whole Grain Breads" book in case anyone is interested.  Also, you can go to the Yumarama bread blog  for a very interesting step by step, sourdough starter comparison intro.

Stay tuned for more sourdough adventure.

Thank you for visiting my blog!!

  1. Good job, Lucky!! And happily there are many of us who get that excited for a bubbling brand-new sourdough starter....My hubby used to tease me because I'd get up in the middle of the night with a flashlight to check the progress of my starter. You are not alone. =)
