I’ve been working on figuring out how to make a sourdough rye bread. I like rye bread, and I love sourdough bread, so I figured a sourdough rye would be pretty awesome. I have some experience making bread, both sourdough and traditional, but I wouldn’t consider myself to be an expert. I knew that making this sourdough would probably take some experimentation and involve several failures.
Usually in winter I can be just distracted enough by Christmas to not be overwhelmed by how much I miss gardening, but this year it’s not happening. The garden restlessness that usually doesn’t start plaguing me until February has been assaulting me pretty much since our first hard frost in late October. I don’t know if it’s everything I’m learning at school, or what, but I want to be growing something! Slowly, I’ve been building up a fairly descent indoor, winter garden to scratch that itch.
