My mom worked in a bakery throughout my entire childhood gifting me a genuine appreciation for all breads and baked goods (que the Peloton!). However, with the bounty and variety of breads I inhaled in my youth, one stole my heart time and time again. Sourdough! The crisp, chewy exterior that gave way to rich, pillowy bites of buttered sourness--and evoked memories of sitting in swings, kicking my feet in the woodchips, laughing-- and sometimes crying--with my closest friend while picking bite-sized pieces of an entire loaf-- washed down with whole milk straight from the cow. Oh sourdough-- you feed my soul as well as my tummy. Feeling especially grateful for my precious childhood on the farm and all my momma taught me and provided for me!
Day one of our sourdough starter! Trust me, I'm counting the days until I can take all its bubbly goodness and work it into some tasty morsels for my own girls. #Baking #Homesteading #breadmaking #sourdough #memories #childhoodmemories
