    I make sourdough bread twice a week. One sandwich loaf for breakfast toast and one round loaf for dinner.

    The starter was made by harvesting locally occurring yeast and bacteria. Here's what's in it. Nothing unusual.

    YEAST TAXA
    Saccharomyces cerevisiae (strain 1) 60.83%
    Wickerhamomyces anomalus (strain 3) 37.38%
    Wickerhamomyces anomalus (strain 2) 1.22%
    Saccharomyces cerevisiae (strain 2) 0.55%
    Saccharomyces sp. (strain 3) 0.02%

    BACTERIA TAXA
    Pediococcus sp.1 58.79%
    Lactobacillus brevis strain1 30.02%
    Unknown sp.1 5.24%
    Lactobacillus plantarum 3.46%
    Lactobacillaceae sp.3 0.74%

    Couldn't you just use a packet of yeast some water and flour?

    When you say locally harvested what do you mean? I am picturing you right now running around the back yard looking for bacteria.

    By the way, none of this is sarcasm. I enjoy cooking and was just curious. unfortunately for me, I don't have an oven. the bread looks good though!

    Stupid editor. Someone please delete this post. I want to remove one of the images, but the editor shows that this post has no images at all. And, I can't delete the post, so it will clutter up this thread until a kind admin deletes it.

    Right. I could just use a packet of yeast. But, somehow the uncertainty and variety of flavor offered by sourdough intrigues me. And, the bread tastes really good.

    The way to harvest yeast and bacteria that eat flour is as follows: Mix enough flour and water to make a mixture with the consistency of pancake batter. Leave it out in an uncovered bowl on your kitchen counter. In a few days it will start to bubble as the colonizing yeasts and bacteria consume the wheat and give off various gases. You can either use it right away, or store it, covered in the fridge. You need to use it to make bread at least once a week to keep it alive. Otherwise, throw some away and add more flour and water.

    I keep mine in a plastic bowl with a cover.

    Hers: some type of chicken salad
    Girlfriends: mimosa and salmon
    Mine: sandwich and the best.grits (the girlfriend ate half)

    Night before last we were with some guests at a new (for us) Thai restaurant on S. Beach for dinner.

    The girlfriend was able to get a picture of her drink.

    If youre ever in New York. Something you should do

    Last night it was dinner at the World Trade Center/One Dine (https://oneworldobservatory.com/en-US/bar-restaurant - https://www.wtc.com/) and then a visit to Oculus (https://www.panynj.gov/wtcprogress/t...ation-hub.html) to see how they decorated it for the holidays and to catch a ride home.
