    yes, this. You have to eventually throw something away because you're perpetually feeding the starter! otherwise your countertops and fridge would be taken over by the dough :D

    my mom made sourdough fairly often at one stage in my childhood. I am very reminiscent of that, as it's one of my very favorite things - and not commonly sold here in the UK so if I want it, I have to make my own. Reminds me to go switch my oven on and see how the first batch comes out!

    can I be a shorty too? 5'4", size (coughjusthadababycough) and wee tiny feet at size 4s!! :eek:
    :jAs I feel like a shorty too.

    I have lurked a bt on the sour dough thing as I used to make it years ago. I didn't want to have to answer any questions as I couldn't really remember what I did. We had a aga at the time so I could keep it going. There was a local shop sold sour dough starter kits although I remember I started my own without a 'kit'.

    As I am really not supposed to have yeast I should look into it. I use a breadmaker as I have a disability and can't knead but I presume I could use the BM for kneading and rising sour dough too?

    Also, on bread, as I have some flour I am starting my breadmaking for next week now and freezing it. Hopefully that means less to do on Tuesday. Or is that cheating?

    This thread is full of boozers...she says enjoying a beer while lunch cooks ;)

    i was thinking of making some bread early, but then I wondered if perhaps it would be even better to bake the bread, make into sandwiches and then freeze...did you have a plan along those lines weezl ?

    Can I come to the carribbean too? Though in all honestly, while I'd love to be known as curvey..I think I'm just fat! I'm so looking forward to starting your plan weezl

    If you do sourdough, you may not have added any yeast from a pkt or wherever, but it will still have yeasts in, they are in the air, and your sourdough aquires them from there. That's how they work I'm afraid, so no good for a yeastfree diet
