This was found at alaska.net and trust me works like a charm. Within 4 days I had the most active starter with a wonderful sour ordor. I made this starter on my counter top. After several feedings it continues to improve in flavor.
A very satisfying and tasty country bread from Eastern Europe, this is not difficult to make. The starter has to be left to ferment for a couple of days, so it does require a little advance planning. This makes 2 large loaves. Enjoy! Adapted from Classic Home Cooking. Prep time does not include time to make the starter or sponge, but does include rising time.
No machine needed. This recipe is yummy and very forgiving. It is a good bread to eat on its own or with cheese and wine. My friends and Family love it. Wonderful with a spinach dip. Perfect for hearty sandwiches.
This is an adopted recipe that I've not yet had the chance to try, although it looks wonderful. Any reviews by those who make this recipe before I do (or after, of course) would be appreciated. Thanks!
This recipe is based on an article in the San Jose Mercury News by Stacy Diaz. I tried it and didn't need near as much water as the recipe indicated. The dough should not be sticky. This recipe is healthier since it uses oil instead of shortening.
When I landed on this recipe while surfing the web, I had to try it. I'm so glad it did. They are delicious. Tip I: The dough should be soft but not sticky. It took me two attempts to get that just right. Tip II: I posted the recipe as written. After, several batches, I don't press the dough into a rectangle anymore. I divide it into eight equal pieces and pat each piece into a 1/2" thick round. Then, turn each round in dish of cornmeal.
This recipe has been a holiday favorite in our family for years! It's one that my Mom passed down to my big sister, Christine, and so, therefore, she became the "Keeper of the Rolls..." We ALWAYS have these at every Thanksgiving and every Christmas, and there are never any leftovers of these rolls! Truly soft, light, sweet and wonderful! NOTE: Prep time includes 24 hours refrigeration time plus 3 hours rising time.
