I’m about 2 weeks into my sourdough journey, and can honestly say, it’s been SUCH a fun adventure! After my initial starter died after about 36 hours, my second one – Harry – has been thriving. I’ve only baked one batch of sourdough bread, and the recipe called for added commercial yeast. So that one didn’t really count. I plan on diving into this Beginner’s Sourdough Loaf this week! I’ve been enjoying watching my starter feed and experimenting with various sourdough discard recipes. I’ve made the King Arthur Flour Sourdough Discard Crackers several times now; they are so far superior in taste to any store bought crackers I’ve ever tasted. AND they’re so so so simple! Here’s the recipe:

Hello! I’ve been dabbling in sourdough as well and, while I’ve found King Arthur’s Naturally Leavened Sourdough to be a strong guide, I’ve experience greater success with The Modern Proper’s Sourdough. The latter feels more directed at casual home bakers. Even after totally botching a batch with too much flour while shaping, the loaves were a little denser crumb but still delicious. Our family loves those sourdough discard crackers as well and don’t even get me started on the Sourdough Chocolate Cake from King Arthur!!
