No-knead Jalapeno Cheddar Sourdough Bread THM-E

After the busyness of the past few weeks, I got to spend all day in my kitchen doing something I love, Sourdough!! By now most of you all should know that I love to create recipes using sourdough starter. There is something so rewarding about taking flour, water, and salt and creating a warm crusty loaf of bread. Best of all, most of my family enjoys eating the recipes I create. Tonight this bread was served with Southwestern Chicken and Bean Soup for the men and I also made Beefy Cabbage Soup for myself.

Two Starters – Two Loaves

I decided to do an experiment with my two sourdough starters. My one starter as some of you know, is 6+ years old, has made many beautiful loaves of bread and has been sent all over the US, Canada, and even into Mexico. This starter is strictly fed with King Arthur Bread flour. The other starter is only 4 weeks old; was started and has been fed with a mixture of half King Arthur Bread flour and half white whole wheat flour commonly known as Prairie Gold Flour. There is a day to day blog post when I started this starter with pictures and detailed instructions.

Loaf made with mature starter on left and loaf on right was made with my new 4 week old starter.

No-knead Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread THM-E

Sourdough bread is so fascinating to me. I love to experiment with different ways, methods, and with my large family, they eat it right up. This method is very easy and the gluten is developed by the stretch and folds. It is a simple recipe that only uses 5 ingredients and is just stirred together using a large spatula or spoon. I found my clay baker at a thrift store for just a few dollars and I love it.

The key to a successful sourdough baking day is a mature starter. I do send small jars of starter for the cost of $6 for packing/shipping. Message me if you are interested in starter. You will find many more sourdough recipes in the spiral bound 600+ page Around the Family Table Cookbook. All recipes are sugar-free and label with the correct fuel.
