From Scratch

There are many things that I love to eat that are not available here. So - as in Costa Rica - when I couldn't find sourkraut - I made my own . So - this was the same thing with sour dough bread. Not able to find starter, I made my own starter, then made my own bread. The first loaf didn't come out so pretty - but it SURE tasted good! Dipped in EVOO and a smidge of basalmic vinegar, and some black pepper! Pure joy! The second loaf was much prettier - but I didn't get a picture of it.

The Starter:



Rising Dough:


Final product: Honestly - it tasted GREAT!

The bread looks awesome! I love making things from scratch...my sister used to make sourkraut from scratch in Colombia, it was really good!
