166. A Heritage Sourdough Method + Answering Your Questions | Anja of Our Gabled Home
If you have been around this community for long, sourdough is not a new topic to you; however, I would be willing to bet that you will hear some ideas and methods in this episode that you have never heard before!
Anja grew up in Germany and learned everything she knows about sourdough from watching her mother bake as a constant part of their family’s routine. In my chat with Anja, we walked through some of the most common questions we receive from sourdough bakers, everything from starter maintenance to baking timelines to discard.
Whether you are new to sourdough or have been baking for years, I am confident this discussion will give you new ideas to shake up your sourdough experimentation.
In this episode, we cover:
- Tips for creating your first sourdough starter
- How many people are overcomplicating sourdough and how to get back to basics
- Navigating the many variables of sourdough and what to do with imperfect bread
- A surprising heritage method of creating and maintaining starter (passed down through Anja’s family!)
- Are hundreds-year-old sourdough starters really ideal?
- Practical examples of sourdough timelines
- A discussion of good bacteria and bad bacteria in foods
- Answering the most frequently asked sourdough questions
