Danish Rye Sourdough

Thanks to Nina from Denmark, I have a terrific Danish Sourdough Starter. She actually sent me two, but I’ve only tried one so far. I baked upĀ  a batch of Pumpkin sourdough muffins using the Danish starter which turned out great and was floored by the taste of a Danish Rye bread I baked up today! This Rye has spectacular flavor. I actually was pretty excited when I smelled the starter brewing as it smelled so good. Here are some pictures of the booty:

Pumpkin muffins

These are the Pumkin muffins, they came out very tender using a Rye starter, as the gluten was low, so no tough muffins.

Here is the Danish Rye Bread:

Thanks Nina!

I have these recipes written up but they won’t be available yet, as I am too busy to post them right now. I hope to have the Danish Sourdough starter for sale on my site soon. It will be nice to expand the selection and have more choices to experiment with. I know I am having fun!

Catching Up!

I have been finishing up home schooling for my kids, getting ready for a wedding and fixing up my house, besides trying to put in a garden, but I am still baking sourdough!

I haven’t had as much time to write on my blog because I am also converting my recipes and sourdough journey into a book. It will take me some time, but eventually there won’t be a “Special Recipes” online recipe printouts for sale. It will still be available for those who purchased it, but I will continue to convert it to a sourdough book instead. Here are some of the breads I have been baking while I have been away from my blog:

Here is a loaf of Basic White Sourdough(recipe on my website):

I am hoping sometime this Summer to have my boys build me a outdoor clay oven. I can’t wait!
