Quick look at the steps for baking my sourdough. My starter was homegrown from water, flour and patience.
Autolysis has been done overnight. Dough formed into a boule
Final Rising While Oven Heats
Bread is set near the oven as it pre-heats to 450F, 30 full minutes
Quick Reshape Before Cooking
Right before going in, quick reshape if necessary
Carefully Dropped Into Hot Pot
Ok, maybe not so carefully
30 Minutes Later
2/3 of the cooking is done, time to remove the lid and put back in for the final 15
Curing on a Rack
Ideally for hours, but it never makes it too far beyond initial cooling
Cut and Serve
This was a delicious loaf!
This is the what. I’ll add a post about the how, later.
