Sourdough bread made from egret's starter

Best described as a French sourdough, very mild everyday bread, good for sandwiches and toasting. I make bread a little more hydrated for extra softness of crumb while I try to maintain a good crunchy crust.



Nice toasting on the bottom.

After cooling this is ready to eat.

    I agree with Hoss, that bread is a work of art! Great job Clay. I would love to make bread like that, I used to but had to give up the carbs. Nice photography as well.

    Beautiful, Clay! :laugh: I'm very happy to see you getting use out of that starter. I have some perking as we speak for a bread making session this week......
  • I think the key to it must be the solid platinum, hand-sharpened, triple-honed, polished-with-fleece-from-newborn-mountain-goat, luxury branded blade used to create those beautiful slashes in the upper crust.

    Clay, I am certain egret will be delighted with the results of your sourdough bread from his starter! The bread looks perfect! :)

    P.S. don't forget to try egret's sourdough blueberry pancakes.
