Betty Boop

Since 2014

Artisan feel, rustic appearance, slow baking, challenging. All those!

Characteristics

It is a simple starter that I have started in 2014. In 2015 I dehydrated part of it in a low temp oven, overnight. The dried out starter I then crumbled up. I have filled a small plastic container I froze it. After about a year I made a starter from this frozen part and it is working like a charm again. The starter is very basic and I bake basic organic sourdoughs..

I love to bake! Sourdough is good for the gut as well as the mind :-)

I like to take pictures of it as well. I've got hundreds (thousands..maybe).
