First Sourdough Bread

My first Spelt sourdough loaves! They turned out okay, though the flavor was a little weird – the “sour” taste wasn’t what I’m used to from sourdough. Maybe because it was only the first batch from this starter? They were also dense with some large holes, but again, I’m hoping that will improve with time. Everyone liked them anyway, and the four loaves were gone in a few days!

We sliced some for open-faced Reuben sandwiches, as a substitute for the traditional rye, and it was really good!

I kept forgetting to grind more flour, so I missed feeding the starter for two days, and therefore it’s taken me an extra week to get it back on track, but I should be making more bread today.
