The main dish for Italian Mediterranean dieters is feeding sourdough starter bread dough processed with fermentation. It has a slightly sour taste and is similar to regular bread.
Really to make bread dough requires a long way, containing sticky flour fermented about 7 – 14 days. This makes me can’t wait for the perfect dough result. If you make it step by step, it will ultimately produce a satisfying one.
To make Feeding Sourdough Starter I made it with 3 ingredients namely wheat flour, breadcrumbs, and water with the same measure.
The reason I added wheat flour to it is that in addition to being a flavor enhancer, this flour also has many benefits because there is content in it. Wheat contains high flavonoids and antioxidants, nutrients in this wheat are thought to play a role in maintaining vascular health and reducing the risk of developing the disease.
The middle is soft, elastic, and frothy. You’ll be addicted to it. You can use this bread as:
