In my house when we make baked goods it usually starts with a good sourdough starter. There are many benefits to sourdough. The fermenting process breaks down the phytic acid in the flour making it more digestible and it also adds many good bacteria. I have several different types of sourdough starters around my house. The one pictured above is of a friendship sourdough. This one seems to be my most active and most used pot. If you have not delved into sourdough, I would encourage you to give it a try.
