Cost is not the barrier to making sourdough. It is knowledge.
Sourdough has a reputation of being the preserve of the wealthy. This goes against everything I believe in, so this post is about knowledge. It’s about sharing the knowledge because the barrier to making sourdough is not financial. The ingredients are the most humble and affordable that money can buy.
So, I can share the knowledge. This bread is more nutritious, more nourishing and more delicious than yeasted bread and baking it is amazing. So, whilst sourdough in artisan bakeries can be expensive to buy it is not expensive to bake. The ingredients of sourdough are flour, water, salt and sourdough starter, which is also made up of flour and water.
My recipe is FREE. It works. Find it here.
MY GIFT OF SOURDOUGH
I have decided my New Year gift is to send out a starter along with the cost of 2 bags of flour 1.5kg of flour (£1.20) to the first 20 people to apply – and I will post these out on the last week of January – OPEN TO UK only.
WHO WILL QUALIFY?
To qualify you must be in a low-income bracket OR baking for charity. I have no way to check who is applying and neither would I want to… but please do NOT apply if you can afford not to. You will be taking the opportunity away from someone who needs it.
