We’ve been baking bread with our own wild yeast sourdough starter for almost 6 years now and people are always amazed with the results; they love the sourness, the spongy texture, and the crispy crust. We don’t claim to be expert bakers, but we’ve had pretty good luck with this particular sourdough recipe.
The magic is in the vigor of your starter but also in the time you give the yeast to do what they do best – eat and expel carbon dioxide, causing the bread to rise. The more they eat and the longer they are allowed to do it, the more complex the flavour.
Finally, the reason we believe most people are amazed with the bread is because of the way it is baked. Bread from an earth oven is imbued with a certain quality that you simply do not get in a traditional oven. An earth oven gives the bread a flavour that is unmatched by anything else I’ve tried.
