Looking for a good basic sourdough recipe
Hello! I’m new around here. I was given a bit of sourdough starter by my Grandmother this Christmas, and have since been feeding it and experimenting with it. (I wanted to call it Sir Percy, but my husband kept commenting on me needing to feed my “creature”, so… now he’s Kreacher.)
I’ve made a few batches of sourdough bread with varying amounts of success. My favorite so far is the most basic I’ve done, only calling for starter, flour, salt, water, and time. My problem is, the recipe I have is in cups. I’d like to find a basic sourdough recipe in using weight measurements. I bought a scale and I’ve been using it to feed my starter, but haven’t used it much for recipes yet.
So far the crumb of my breads has been OK, but tighter (is that the right term?) than I want it. I’d like to try for that artisan look with the big bubbles, but I feel like I need a recipe where I can watch my ratios more closely. My in-laws gave us a cast iron dutch oven (completely ignorant of my grandmas gift of starter–funny how these things work out) so I’ve been able to get a nice golden crust, its just the inside of the bread I’m working on. Any other tips on how to achieve this are appreciated.
