This post will be on cheating… the tasty kind of cheating. I made up some Kalamata, Artichoke Sourdough and I added something to make the bread sour… by cheating. It was certainly a fun and tasty way to bake up some loaves of bread!
I have been working on some 100% starter hydration recipes. A 100% hydration sourdough starter is a culture which is kept and fed with water and flour at equal weights. Like for instance 5 oz water to 5 oz flour. A 166% hydration starter is fed with equal volume of flour and water, which most typically is one cup of water (8.3 oz) and one cup of flour (5 oz).
