I am attempting to make a sourdough bread starter.  It takes about a week of feeding flour and water.  Apparently, there are yeast spores in the air and in the flour which are captured and start working in the flour and water.   On Saturday I get to make my first bread!   As I read more about the process, I learned about hooch.   Hooch is the watery part on top of the mixture that you have to pour out every day.   I just like the word.  Hooch.....hooch...hooch.

  1. Lol, you crack me up! Tell me how the sourdough goes. I'm curious about starting my own. I hear that it takes a while to actually get your home atmosphere "yeasty" and your bread will improve over time simply because of your house! So cool :-D
