(Part 3) In a few earlier posts, I walked you through my sourdough journey, from nurturing my starter to baking my first successful loaves (and a few pancakes and bread flops in between!). There are LOTS of photos in that last post, but here are some videos for those who prefer video. They are very short snippets; I tried to keep them short so they would load quickly, or if you just needed to see one part.
Be warned that this is sort of rough video footage–this is new to me to begin with, and I had to do all the recording myself and that’s a whole new thing for me (adjusting the camera, etc)….so thanks for your patience!
The recipe can be found in earlier posts and in my cookbook, Everyday Cooking. (You know you need a copy–and it’s a great wedding or birthday gift!)
Part 1 Making the dough — Takes about 5 minutes (You need to have fed your sourdough starter a few hours earlier) Note: If I’d combined the water and starter first, this would have been easier to mix.
Part 2 Cleaning up the mess in a heartbeat
What it looks like before you leave it overnight
Shaping and baking the loaf
(For anyone concerned: I coughed away and into my upper arm.)
Part 5 Resting and baking the loaf
Part 6 After baking the first 20 minutes
Part 7 Finished loaf!

(Note on the Le Parfait jar: I wanted a straight-sided-all-the-way-to-the-top jar in this size so I didn’t have a collar to stir under, but I didn’t realize till after I got this that the lid is ATTACHED — not sure how I missed that, but…..So I had my husband remove the metal parts so I have a lid with a top that sits atop it. It does not seal down. My preference for this purpose.)
