GLUTEN-FREE WonderFlour

Gluten free is huge in our culture now, and for me, I cannot understand how everyone thinks its a better option. Most of the gluten free out there is difficult, and far from being a health food. Most of the mixes are filled with garbage

How To BUILD Your Sourdough Starter

How To BUILD Your Sourdough Starter

Chef Brad’s Sourdough Starter works well for traditional sourdough as well. There is a process called a build that you do to build it’s strength over a few days to use it as your yeast. It is well worth the effort and this starter is powerful.

Mature Sourdough Culture

Day one

  • Initial Chef Brad’s Sourdough Mix           200 gm.
  • Organic Rye Flour                                          90 gm.
  • Natural White Flour                                        90 gm.
  • Water  90 degrees f.                                     225 gm.

Mix well and cover, leave in a warm place for 24 hours.  In a warm area.

Day two, three, four, and five.

  • *“Chef”                                                             200 gm.
  • Natural White Flour                                      180 gm.
  • Water                                                              225 gm.

*The “Chef” is what you make on the first day.  On day two, three, four, and five you will take 200 grams of it and add flour and water.  Discard the remaining.

This becomes your new starter.  Save the original one for future use.  The end one becomes your starter.  You can use it for a few days, but if you let it set you will need to go through the process again.  The process is what activates the natural yeast for baking the doughs.  If your bread is not responding just do another feed.

Quick process:

You can add kefir to the starter to give it strength and to use it quicker.
