Hot water is the secret to great tortillas. Now that I’ve piqued your curiosity I will go on…

I have a member in my family that has issues with wheat. The individual has a skin condition made worse by consuming wheat products. However, the longer fermented sourdough baked goods don’t seem to be a problem.

Sourdough Biscuits in a HURRY…

OMGosh I have been busy! I wanted to bake up some sourdough biscuits this morning at the request of my kiddos. Of course I couldn’t just whip them up, I had to make a formula first! Well I was halfway through mixing when my boss called and said, ” Come to work stat!”   Jeesh!

Danish Rye Sourdough Bread and Pumpkin Rye Muffins

Danish Rye
.
Thanks to Nina from Denmark, I have a terrific Danish Sourdough Starter. She actually sent me two, but I’ve only tried one so far. I baked up  a batch of Pumpkin sourdough muffins using the Danish starter which turned out great and was floored by the taste of a Danish Rye bread I baked up today! This Rye has spectacular flavor. I actually was pretty excited when I smelled the starter brewing as it smelled so good. Here are some pictures of the booty:
