Sourdough 101

Sourdough bread is made with a starter, which is a mix of flour and water that ferments and creates a bubbly, yeasty mixture. This starter is what gives sourdough its characteristic tangy flavor. The dough is then allowed to rise for several hours before being baked in the oven. The result is a thick, crusty loaf of bread that has a chewy texture and a slightly sour taste.

Why Is Sourdough Bread So Popular?

There are several reasons why sourdough bread has become so popular in recent years. First of all, it is delicious!
