~ Sourdough Bread ~

I finally ordered some sourdough starter from Cultures for Health. I have made my own starter in the past but it seems like it is good for a few batches of bread and them something happens and it goes bad.
I used the recipe on the back of the instructions for the starter and it is sooo good. Crusty on the outside, moist on the inside and stays together making it the perfect sandwich bread.
This is what your starter should look like before you bake bread.
The other thing I learned this week was that raw honey contains amylase. Amylase is an enzyme in your mouth that starts the breakdown of starchy food. If you spread a little raw honey on your bread about 15 minutes before eating it, it will begin to break down the starch in the bread ultimately making it easier on your digestive system. Real food is so cool!
