Lori -- I haven't forgotten about the sourdough starter recipe. I can't find the one I used,
but that's not surprising because I got it started about five years ago. But I found one that
should work for you. I find this website extremely helpful on all things bread, so I bet it
will be of help to you.
Here's the link
Let me know if you want more detail about sourdough starter or recipes.
Same goes for anyone else who is interested. Sourdough really is an easy bread to make
once you get going. I'm very happy to help anyone even though I'm not an expert, just
My direct email address is peggybright at hotmail dot com
It's better to use that yuku funmail, because I never check that. Just not used to it.
And a big thank you Mary Pat and Lori for their leadership and hard work on this quest.
I am so impressed. And a big thank you as well to all my teammates. I haven't done a
ZWT in ages and this is my first quest. What a wonderful re-introduction.
So when is anyone coming to Australia? In person?
It's been such a whirlwind of activity here. Mary Pat and Lori, you have been amazing on this scoring exercise.
I'm exhausted just looking at your efforts. So with all this activity I thought the above might have been missed.
So Lori if you or anyone else is interested in sourdough starter and bread, here are some details.
Wish I could send you some of my starter. It's five years old now and it keeps well. During our travels, I have
successfully 'parked' it in the fridge, well covered, for up to three months. I also keep a small amount of
back-up in the freezer.
So if anyone wants more info, please use my email address of peggybright at hotmail dot com.
And a big thank you to everyone involved here. As Lesley has so eloquently said, this has been an awesomeand supportive team. I feel so honoured to have played a small part here and really value the chance to have
reconnected with you all.
I'm probably too swamped (and travel too much) to participate in other games, but this has been such a treat.
And a lot of good food too, but the companionship really outshines everything else.
We're off to India in early October and not home until the end of November. One of our daughters just returned
home from her five weeks in Rio de Janeiro (in relation to work and the Olympics). Soon after the daughter who
lives in Paris will be home for Christmas and New Year.
I'll do my best to keep tabs on all of you.
Peggy I am so sorry, I did miss this your offer for your sourdough started help. I found two photos of my very last try with starter and the first one is hard to see but I did get the bubbles going and the second photo I think it took a nose dive for me.
Cant remember but think it might have been duoynte that had the bread forum on Zaar and she was a sweetheart and tried to give me some tips but I just never got it right. Think I will be forever yeast challenged!
That is amazing your starter has stayed so well for five years! You've got the golden touch! I will email you soon hon!
Safe travels and have a wonderful time in India. Friends of ours went a few years ago for church and they posted photos of their trip. OH MY GOSH the spice shop they stopped at I swear I could actually smell all those spices and the fabrics beautiful bright colors with the gold trim....gorgeous! For being a poor country the people always seemed to be smiling and the kids playing like any other kid having fun.
Have wonderful holidays with your daughters both being home with you!! I am sure we will all "see" each other here and on FB so this is not goodbye. I have really enjoyed getting to know you better and spending this time with you.
