Zvonko

Since 2018

I found out about sourdough when Anita Sumer published her book here in Slovenia. This bread is very healthy and i decided to try it because my husband has health problems if he eats bread from the shop. He has no problem eating fresh bread from sourdough. Now I bake almost every second day. And I love it.

Characteristics

My Zvonko is realy creamy starter with very nice yogurth smell. I love the colour of it, which is greenish. When I feed Zvonko he will be ready in about 8 hrs. He needs feeding twice a week.
