Camaldoli Sourdough Starter
Product Review (submitted on February 7, 2014):
This is my first sour dough culture. I'm proud to say that so far I haven't killed it. The culture is working well as long as I feed it correctly. I am still struggling to make "the perfect loaf" but I've only tried to batches so far. I believe that the directions could be more clear. At first I was throwing out all but 1/4 cup of the starter every time I fed it because the directions did not specify what to do. As far as the bread I have made so far, it had great flavor but the first batch did not rise correctly and dried out and the second batch rose too much. I am finding that sour dough is trickier than regular white bread. The directions should include a trouble shooting guide. All in all, I'm very pleased and so is my husband. Also, the biscuit recipe included need more salt.
