“Zoomie Station, Friendship, Sourdough and Best Bread Ever’ are several names that we can call our bread tonight. This bread was made from a wild yeast that is passed down from generation to generation. The Amish call it “Friendship Bread’, because you would pass the yeast to your neighbors. This yeast was contained in a flour and water mixture. The “Gold Miner’s” of California had a similar yeast concoction and called it sourdough. Today Zoomie of Zoomie Station gave us a small container of flour and water with live yeast. With the addition of sugar, salt, water and flour, it will be transformed into a loaf of fine bread.

What is great about this starter is that is a living and breathing organism. You need to feed your starter occasionally. With proper care this yeast will live forever. I would like to share this starter with you. Drop me a line and for the price of postage I will send you some. Instructions will be included. See you next time.

Alexis killed our yeast this year but at least we've managed to keep our chinchillas alive ;)

Chris, I will send you some starter if you are interested. Chinchilas?

Zoomie said...

I'm glad you have some, as I managed to kill the parent starter from which yours came!

Rustic hearth bread.Just wrap that around a bacon-sausage.. a little hot sauce. Perfection!

Is it really better using a starter rather than yeast? Sourdough flavor, I guess. And Zoomie is bonkers for sourdough.

Zoomie, The child is ready to take care of parent any time.

Greg, You know what I am talking about. Yes, Yes.

cookiecrumb, What gives a hippopatomous his patomous? Courage! Of cource it makes a difference of yeast. There is a yeast bank at UC Davis for beer. Every yeast has a unique character and I think you knew that already.
