Cover and allow it to rise for 20 minutes. Remove lid, sprinkle salt over dough, and gently pick up one side of the dough, fold it in half. Repeat with all four sides of dough. Cover and allow to rise for another hour. Repeat 2 more times for a total of 4 folding times. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 12 hours or longer. Remove dough from the refrigerator. Flatten dough into a rectangle. Sprinkle heavily with cinnamon and raisins. Fold dough in 3rds, pinching the edges together to seal the edges. Turn dough and fold in 3rds, pinching to seal edges.

    To be plan approved for THM sourdough items made with sourdough starter needs a 7 hours room temp ferment OR 24 hour fridge ferment. You can combine room and fridge temp, also. 1 hour room temp equals 3.5 hours in the fridge.THE 7 HOUR FERMENTING TIME IS COUNTED FROM THE TIME YOU MIX THE DOUGH UNTIL YOU BAKE IT.
