There are many all-time favorite smells around the world, such as the smell of a new book or freshly cut grass, yet few rival that of freshly baked bread. Warm crust, spongy and moist crumb that melts in the mouth… Unfortunately, not every store-bought loaf can boast of such qualities. As a matter of fact, perhaps it is time to make your own? If so, using a flavorful rye sourdough starter perfect for rye bread is your best bet!

Today, Cook It will teach you how to make a leavening agent, which is considered one of the most beneficial. It is also called ‘eternal,’ and for a good reason, as you can use it endlessly. All you need to remember is to feed your rye sourdough starter with flour.



Day 1

Mix flour with warm water in a 2-quart jar and cover. Let rest at a warm place for a day. The appearance of bubbles will signal the start of the fermentation process.


Day 2

Feed the starter. To do this, add another 3 ⅓ fl oz (100 ml) of warm water and 3 ½ oz (100 g) of flour and mix until smooth before leaving to rest for another day.


Day 3

The fermentation process is plain to see: the starter expands in size and is bubbly throughout. Its smell may not be pleasant, but you should not worry about it. Feed the starter one last time and set it in a warm place.


Day 4

The smell has become sour, the sourdough has slightly decreased in size and is ready for making bread. Take whatever you need for the recipe and transfer the rest to a half-quart jar with holes in the lid. If you store it in a warm place, you need to feed it once every 12 hours; if in the fridge — every 5-7 days. It is truly an eternal starter!

Unlike purchased bread, homemade bread does not grow moldy but stale, and you can store it longer. Homemade yeast will be an excellent substitute for dry yeast (which is chemically processed to the detriment of taste and beneficial properties), and all the ingredients for fresh bakes will always be at your fingertips.

Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

I’ve been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours today, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty price sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the net might be a lot more useful than ever before.|

Superb site you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get feed-back from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Many thanks!|

Spot on with this write-up, I truly feel this amazing site needs a great deal more attention. I’ll probably be returning
to see more, thanks for the advice!

We stumbled over here coming from a different website and thought
I might as well check things out. I like what I see so i
am just following you. Look forward to looking into your web page again.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to
be really something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.

I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

Thanks for a marvelous posting! I truly enjoyed reading it, you may be a great
author.I will be sure to bookmark your blog and will eventually come back later on.
I want to encourage you to continue your great job, have a nice afternoon!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I
found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear
and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had
to tell someone!

I used to be suggested this website by my
cousin. I am no longer certain whether this put up is written by
means of him as no one else recognize such special about my trouble.
You are amazing! Thanks!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog
that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some
experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
Superb work!
