Also, Linda at the Witches Kitchen has a method for those that are at work during the day. She starts hers the night before, and bakes it in the evening after work I think.
I think there are as many recipes and methods for sourdough bread as there are bakers! It rather depends on your daily routine, and what time of day you want to begin, and when do you want to bake it.
I have been baking sourdough for about three years now, and have tweaked many methods to find the one that suits my lifestyle! I wanted a method…[Read more]

I plant mine in December … that way they get a good growth on before the cooler weather in about March when the female flowers come on. This is SEQ so it will be different depending where you are located.
I will send you seeds if you PM me you…[Read more]

I have had my starter for several years now, but I remember it being very easy to make the starter (if you can’t beg some from a friend….)
All I did was to get some organic, unbleached wholemeal flour from the supermarket and mix it with some un-chlorinated water (ie rainwater, or still mineral water). I think I used about a…[Read more]

Hi there. Just had a look at your blog. Good luck with your journey; it is scary when you start to ‘see’ the waste isn’t it!
I noticed on your Introduction post that purchasing cleaning items was allowed … you might like to look at some of the posts about making your own (and using simple, not-toxic items like bicarb and vinegar). There’s a…[Read more]
