Rustic Sourdough Bread Recipe

Use this recipe to create your own rustic sourdough bread, using sourdough "leaven" or sourdough starter, and you’ll have your own artisanal sourdough boule.

| December 2013/January 2014

Yield: One 1 1⁄2-pound sourdough boule

Ingredients:

1 cup leaven, or fed sourdough starter
2 cups lukewarm water
5 cups flour, plus up to 1 cup more for the work surface
1 1⁄2 tsp salt

Instructions:



1. Feed your starter by setting aside half of it and feeding the remainder with 4 ounces of flour and 4 ounces of lukewarm water. Stir to combine, and set the starter aside for 8 to 12 hours to complete the culture proof before you use it to bake.

2. In a mixing bowl, pour 1 cup fed sourdough starter into 1 cup lukewarm water. Add 3 cups flour, a little at a time. Stir until loosely combined, then mix thoroughly with wet hands. Cover the container loosely and set aside for a half-hour if using white flour, or 45 minutes for whole-grain flour.
