But here's the froth and bubble!
I decided to have a go at making my own sourdough starter last Monday. I fed it each day, and because I can't bear to discard three quarters of the brew each time I feed it, I kept it and started a new pot. Now I have starter to give to the whole neighbourhood, let along friends, and it's very lively!

What a hoot. Tomorrow I expect to have a bread-making spree and visit the Farmers Market. If you're interested in the ingredients for this living ferment, I'll be happy to post it. Of course there are as many recipes and magical mysteries as there are bakers but this one has given me a splendid start.
I must say it's a pleasure to be back to my blog, and in touch with those who have taken an interest in the past. Spring is here, and the late winter wattles are in full bloom. The freesias smell heavenly, and there are buds everywhere. Best wishes to you all.
