Isn't it the truth that the only resolutions that stick are the ones that are easy enough to repeat and easy enough to enjoy? If you haven't had the pleasure of keeping a sourdough starter and making a no-knead bread with it, you don't know what you're missing! You can make artisan bread very easily.
Most people are surprised when we tell them the culture that receives the most hesitation to try is our sourdough. Sure kefir is different and kombucha might look creepy, but sourdough holds the prize for intimidation. Baking is intimidating. Is it just me that finds using the oven for anything to be intimidating? But I'm here to tell you that sourdough is incredibly easy to care for (scoop of flour and water, stir, you're done for the week!) and baking with it is just as easy when you use a no-knead recipe.
I always tell people you can make baking as easy or difficult as you please. Sourdough bread is incredibly forgiving, and almost always delicious (even if it looks like a truck hit it!). You don't need anything out of the ordinary. Or any skills. Or loads of free time - I promise, sourdough does almost all of the work itself!
No-Knead Whole Spelt Sourdough (from Eric and Denyse, who are mentioned in the Lisa Rayner's Wild Bread )
This is one of our favorites. Spelt is an ancient wheat grain that many people with wheat allergies or sensitivities can tolerate well. This grain is sometimes preferred to wheat because its less bitter and has a great flavor! It also gives beautiful 'open crumb' (airy bread with large bubbles inside)!)
