Parisian Sourdough Starter
Product Review (submitted on November 4, 2013):
I got this as a gift about 8 months ago. I left the unopened package of starter in my fridge until a few days ago, when I started the process of bringing it back to life. After about 4 days of following the instructions pretty carefully, I have a big foamy jar of starter. After feeding, it triples in volume in about 4 hours. This is exciting!
I just baked my first loaf. I used the no-knead method and baked in a covered, preheated dutch oven. The bread came out perfectly. It's just as light and airy as my yeasted bread. The crust and flavor are superb. The sour flavor is present, but not as pronounced as other sourdough breads I've had.
(CFH, I don't see a way to add a photo here, but am happy to submit them.)
