sourdough bread

Definition

Food

  • Bread which uses in place of yeast, dough from a previous batch which has been allowed to ferment with a little warm water and sugar overnight or longer. About 10 per cent of a batch is reserved as starter for the next equal-sized batch. Less will require a longer time to prove. The method is simple and the taste of the bread is thought by some to be superior.
