The book I was after was Brilliant Bread by James Morton which I had read about on someone's blog recently. I am not doing too well with my sourdough starter, so kindly given to me by Molebags a bloggy friend of a friend last week. I don't know whether it is not warm enough in my kitchen especially during the night or whether it is sulking at being removed from its nice home in Sussex or what but it's not frothing as it should. I now have a second spoonful in another jar and am keeping that wrapped in a tea towel blanket to keep it cosy and with the aid of this book I will also have a go at making my own starter in case the ones I was given don't care for Somerset yeasts and are just feeling homesick! I made an ordinary loaf of bread yesterday and had it cooling in front of the starter jar hoping that perhaps it would get the idea of what was wanted. I haven't given up on them and I won't be beaten but it might be a while before I can post about my wonderful sourdough bread!!
Do you find that ideas for blog posts are like London buses - first there are none and then several come along all at once - as I do? I had another post all ready in my mind but since I took these photos this morning this is the post you got!! Another day I will write my original idea perhaps.
