  • Welcome To A Sour Note You are listening to my voice, looking at my face, and reading this text because, I hope, you want to learn how to bake a loaf of very special bread. During this course, we are going to work together to accomplish a number objectives. One of the most lasting will be the creation of your very own sourdough base. This base, if properly cared for, will be your for a very long time. I have had mine for over 30 years. We are also going to go through each step in the process of baking a perfect sourdough loaf. Actually, during the course, we will be baking three loaves, one to eat immediately (You won’t be able to resist!), one to share (Show off your new skills!), and one to put away for later (I see toast tomorrow morning.). This is the introduction to the course, so I want to give you an idea of what is to come. In the next few moments, we will look at the content of the course, talk about what you will need to accomplish your goal, and chat a bit about the best way to use this CD. I’m running out of room, so why don’t you click on the forward arrow to move us to the next page? What to expect in this course. Introduction ll 1 1 2 n CONTROL PANEL
  • What We Are Going To Do We are going to accomplish a lot during the course. One of the first things you need to know about is time. Some of the steps, like those in Lesson One, can take a few days to initiate, and will continue for many years. Steps you will learn in the other lessons will take time to accomplish also. It will be a mixture of minutes spent in an activity, followed by hours waiting for the next activity to begin. So, how is the best way to go about all of this? One of the great things about having me here on a CD is that you can call on me at any time. I recommend that you use me now to go completely through the course, familiarize yourself with the steps, the things you need to get, and the time you will need to complete each step of the process. You can take your time, go back over items you aren’t sure of, take advantage of additional information prompts, and prepare for the big bake. We will even have some review to be sure you understand everything Then, when you are ready, use me as a resource and a reminder to provide you with support as you accomplish the lesson objectives. Oops, running out of room again. Click the glowing button to bring back the control panel, then click the forward arrow. What to expect in this course. Introduction

Next page, please Sour dough bread is traditionally baked in either an oval or round loaf, to present as much crusty surface as possible The sponge is the name for the dough mass after all ingredients have been added. It has been given this name because, as it rises, it filled with air pockets and becomes sponge-like in appearance Bread dough is kneaded to distribute the yeast and develop gluten for an even texture. To knead, pick up the far edge of the dough and fold over the bottom edge. Press down with the heels of your hands, pushing the dough away from you. Turn the dough one quarter turn and repeat the process. When properly kneaded, bread dough will be smooth and satiny, stretchy and no longer sticky. What to expect in this course. Introduction
  • At The End Of A Lesson After you have completed each lesson, I have included a self-check review. This lets you determine if you got all of the information or if you need to go through the lesson one more time. No one’s keeping score, and you can take the lesson quiz as many times as you want. Remember, your “grade” will be the quality of your loaf, and the health of your sourdough base. Remember, you are taking this course in a setting you are very familiar with – your kitchen. You know where all the items you need are. The great thing about this course is that you can use the first run-through to make sure you have everything you need as far as equipment (Now is the time to go out and buy that stove if you don’t have one!), and a chance to make a shopping list of the ingredients you will need. Well, this finishes the introduction. Now let’s begin exploring the yeasty promise of a golden loaf of the best bread you ever tasted! Click the MENU to select the next place you wish to visit. (Hint: if this is your first run-through, I recommend taking them in order so you will have an idea of the flow of the course.) CONTROL PANEL What to expect in this course. ll Introduction 4 1 2 n

  • Lesson One – Creating The Sourdough Base
    • This lesson is one that will take you some time to complete if you follow every step. If you wish to cut out some of the steps, here is the way to do it. Find a person who has a Sourdough Base and ask him or her for a bit of it. If you are able to do that, you will have eliminated several of the beginning tasks. I will place notes for you so you will know where to begin if you have done this.
    • Let’s take a look at what we will accomplish in this lesson.
    • The Objective for this lesson is:
    • Upon completion of this lesson, you will successfully demonstrate your knowledge of, and ability to complete, the procedures necessary to create, maintain and use the sourdough base.
    • The topics in this lesson are:
    • Creating the Sourdough Base
    • Achieving a Viable Sourdough Base for Baking
    • Maintaining the Base during Hibernation
    • Using the Base
    • Care for the Base

  • Creating The Sourdough Base The Sourdough base is going to be your companion for a long time, bring you pleasure in baking not only the loaves described in this course, but a variety of other wonderful concoctions. You will find yourself using it for all kinds of baked good, from pancakes, to biscuits, to pizza dough. We are going to complete all of the steps necessary to complete your own base in this lesson; however, if you have managed to secure a bit of someone else’s base, you can skip some steps. I will mark those with a ♪ so you will know you don’t have to do them. I do recommend creating your own base if you can. It is something you can always take pride in and other bakers will respect you for it. Notice that there is a static picture on this page. In that bowl is my base. I have removed it from hibernation, fed it and have sitting there eager and ready to be used. Later in this lesson, there will be a short visual showing you some of the steps that we will be going through during the creation of your base. ♪ Our first task is to explore the possible methods for obtaining the yeast for the base. We will look into that on the next page. Click the Forward Arrow to continue Lesson One
  • Choosing The Yeast ♪ Finding your Yeast Yeast is all around us. It literally is in the air we breathe. If you were to mix some flour, water, and a bit of honey and sugar, put it in a warm spot and let it set for a day or two, it would start to bubble and give off a “yeasty” smell. This is the first way you can obtain the yeast. There are some cautions if you use this method. First, there is more than one kind of yeast, and you might not find the one you want on the first – or even the second or third attempt. Second, you may be unfortunate enough to pick up bacteria instead of or in addition to the yeast. That will not result in a usable base. If you do want to try this method, here are the ingredients and portions of each. Water: 2 cups (480 to 500 ml) Flour: 2 cups (480 to 500 ml) Honey: 1 teaspoon (5 ml) Do not use additional honey for the mixture. You are only using it to entice the yeast to make your bowl their home. Once you have your yeast, they will be happy to live on flour and water only. Mix all of the ingredients together and place the open container in a warm area (room temperature of around 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius)) will be fine. Check the mixture every day for bubbling and a pleasing yeasty smell. At the end of 5 days, if this has not happened, of if you get something that has a non-pleasing smell, go to plan 2. To see a short presentation of the process, click the large button. Remember, you can control video and voice from the control panel.

  • ♪ Plan 2 There are two ways to get packaged yeast. If you want “sourdough” yeast, you can go to the internet and find a lot of sites that will sell it to you. If you do want to try this method, here are the ingredients and portions of each. Water: 2 cups (480 to 500 ml) Flour: 2 cups (480 to 500 ml) Do not use honey for the mixture. Since you have your yeast, they will be happy to live on flour and water only. You can also simply go the a store, buy a pack of yeast. While it wont immediately have the same tang as the sourdough yeast, after a while, your base will begin to take on the characteristics of the classic sourdough flavor. If you have done this, you can move to the next step. Choosing The Yeast Click the Forward Arrow to continue Lesson One

  • Achieving A Viable Sourdough Base For Baking After you have your base, you need to properly feed, maintain, and use it. Storing your base An important need is a container to properly store your base in the refrigerator. Note: if you happen to live in an area where it gets no more than 40 degrees F ( 4 degrees C) or less than 35 degrees F (1 degree C) don’t bother with the refrigerator, but you still need a container. Get a closed container for the starter. Crockery is best, but just about anything can be used, except metal. Try to get something with a clamp-on or snap-on lid. I use a vinyl plastic food-storage container. Actually, I use four 1-quart (960 to 1000 ml) containers, but at the age of 32, my base likes to spread out a bit. Where to place the starter for safekeeping Here is one best place. Place the container on the top shelf of your refrigerator, on the right side. This is the warmest spot in the refrigerator and will ensure the base does not die from cold. How often to feed your starter If you aren’t going to use it at the time, take it out of the container and place it in a large open bowl. Add 1 cup (240/250 ml) flour and one cup (240/250 ml) of water. Let it sit out overnight with a clean dishtowel over the bowl. Next morning place it back in the container that you have cleaned. What about the added volume? Time to do some baking! Click the Forward Arrow Lesson One ll 5 1 2 n CONTROL PANEL
  • When Disaster Strikes In case Disaster Strikes - Backing up your Base You never know when something can happen to your base. It is an easy process to dry some base. Lay out a small piece of waxed paper on a cookie sheet. Water down a bit of fully activated base (it does not take much) to a thin batter. Using a spatula, spread a very thin layer of base over the waxed paper. Set the paper on top of the refrigerator or somewhere dry and safe and leave it overnight or until it is completely dry. When dry, the paper will curl and the dried base will easily peel off. The dried base can be crumbled or pulverized and stored in a plastic bag. It will keep best in your refrigerator. About 6 months later make sure to re-activate some base to the fully activated state and then dry some more. Click the Forward Arrow Lesson One ll 6 1 2 n CONTROL PANEL
  • Using The Base When you want to bake bread or other goodies The night before baking, remove your base from the refrigerator. Divide it in half. Return half to the refrigerator. This is your insurance back-up in case anything goes wrong with the overnight growth of the base. Divide and grow the base To wake up and grow the base, place it in a large bowl, add two cups (500 ml) warm –not hot – water and two cups (500 ml) all purpose white flour to the bowl. Do not use bread flour or any other kind except white. This is food for the yeast in the base. Stir the mixture until the lumps are gone, cover it with a dishcloth, set the bowl in a warm place, and leave it. The next morning, the mixture will be all bubbly and will have a yeasty smell. Divide the amount you will use for baking from the bowl and set it aside. Bring out the other base from the refrigerator and mix it into the base remaining in the bowl. This lets it have a meal also. Leave it in the bowl for 3-4 hours, then place it back in covered containers and into the refrigerator, ready for the next bake. If disaster strikes If you check on the base the next morning and it does not bubble or it smells funny, THROW IT OUT! Now you know why you left half the base in the refrigerator. While you will have to go through the process again, your base is safe. To see a short presentation of the process, click the large button.

  • Care For The Base
    • Keeping the base healthy
    • Remember, your base is alive. If you don’t tend to its care and feeding, it can get sick and even die.
    • Here are some good things to remember. Mark your calendar so you won’t forget and leave your base to suffer in the dark silent cold.
    • Every three weeks, feed your base.
    • Each week, look at the liquid that has formed at the top of your base. It should look no darker that the color of ripened wheat, or about like this.
    • Any darker, and you need to open and sniff. If you still smell a yeasty aroma, empty the liquid off the top, add an equal amount of clean warm water, stir it in and reseal. If the smell is bad, throw it out and activate your emergency backup.
    • If you do this regularly, your base will live at least as long as mine.
