King Arthur Flour Sourdough Starter Recipe

BUY This Starter on Etsy: Mom's Favorite Sourdough Starter

From the seller: "My amazing parents were married in 1969- My father was in the Navy and they traveled all over the country, in their travels they happened to be in San Francisco and my fantastic homemaker mother decided it would be a good idea to buy a sourdough starter while she was there. She has fed and taken care of it ever since, like her third child! I always wondered what that strange concoction of stuff was in the pantry, if only I knew then how amazing that yeast really was maybe I would have appreciated the hundreds of fresh loaves of bread it provided for our family."

You could make this bread, and no other, for the rest of your baking career, and never feel cheated.

Saveur Magazine Four-Hour Baguette Recipe

Traditional baguettes are 24 to 30 inches long and are baked in ovens that produce steam, which delays crust formation so the loaves can fully rise. This recipe reduces the length to fit in home ovens and calls for adding ice cubes to a hot cast-iron skillet to create steam.
