Great deal OP, heat added

Great timing daffers, was looking at a garlic mushroom recipe served on sourdough just this morning. Heat added

Sourdough..... The oldest way of making bread with natural yeast, flour and salt.
This most definitely is not, Dont be fooled... what you save in price you will never make up in quality.
Genuine sourdough from a good artisan bakery may cost a bit more but these loaves have been fermented for up to 18 hours to achieve
the unique taste and crust

I quite often cheat and get some live yeast from any of the bakers in Tesco or Asda and make some bread the normal way but always keep some dough back and keep feeding it in a jar like you would do with a real sourdough culture, over a relatively short time the mix does sour and makes excellent sourdough. I have done this on more than one occasion with great results.

Heat from me, this is a great spot and thanks for posting

18 hours? Or do you mean 18 hours to proof?
The sour dough starter needs at least 5 days to ferment properly. Once you have made a batch you can keep adding to it and keep for months. Keep it in the fridge, take it out the day before you are going to use, feed it with equal quantities of flour and water and then you can use it the next day to make your loaf.

Great price Daffers, thanks and heat added

Yes as i said the sourdough can take up to 18 hours fermenting(proving) The sourdough starter usually takes around a week to become active enough to use as the yeast agent and can be refreshed on a regular basis,The Boudin bakery in San francisco uses a portion of sour dough starter that is over a hundred years old, Of course its been refreshed many times and contains all but trace elements from that era...

"Sourdough".. I find it hard to believe that some minimum wage teenager with "couldn't be arsed more" working at ASDA has mastered a real sourdough breadmaking techniques and applies them to sell proper bread at the price of sliced white toastie.

Most likely it's just one of those dry mixes added just before it goes to the oven.

Have some heat daffers.

Sounds like Trigger's broom

It's probably still better than the other normal bread they sell though. Sourdough minus time and a few small things is incredibly easy to make.

It reminded me of homeopathy but I like the Trigger's broom analogy.

If you've got a Whole Foods near you they do what is, in my opinion, the best widely available sourdough. It's usually £1.99 and every now and then on offer at 99p. The asda one is pretty good but lacks a bit of chewiness to the crust. Avoid the Sainsbury's one at all costs. It's fine as a loaf of bread but certainly doesn't taste like sourdough.

We make our own sourdough bread - it looks quite complicated to start with, but it's easy once you get into routine.
I don't trust supermarket bread, most of the "fresh baked" bread is actually frozen and re-heated.

It's so much nicer though! I've made loads now, can always mix it up and do various flavoured ones but the plain white one is my favourite. My starter is about 9 months old now.

Unfortunately the Sainsbury in-store bakery is usually poor.

Of the in-store 'bakeries' I've tried I'd rate them thus:
1 Tesco (they actually seem to bake theirs a bit longer)
2 Lidl (just ready made part-bake type stuff baked I guess but nice recipes)
3 Morrison
4 Asda
5 Sainsbury

No, none of them actually proof their bread but at least Tesco seem to let it cook a bit longer.
Nice to see some interest in breads though as most of the bread in the UK is awful. I guess the Chorleywood bread process
en.wikipedia.org/wik…ess
was invented here (probably the worst thing ever to happen to bread). Shouldn't the saying be 'the worst thing since sliced bread?'

I am partial to some rye or part rye bread but more importantly anything which is properly proofed: I would prefer some white rustic bread (Spanish or Portuguese for example) over sliced Chorleywood 'wholemeal' any day of the week. For sliced bread I usually buy that Polish one: it has some rye and is a bit better proofed than most sliced bread.

I like the Tesco one but I see they've increased the price from £1.30 to £1.50.
I was brought up with sourdough bread baked by my mother and aunt in South Africa and nothing I've had here has been as good. Like you I too like Rye bread which I bake myself

Anybody know the ingredients of this?

I'd imagine there's yeast in there.

Our favourite is a wholemeal with sunflower seeds

I aslo make my own bread. organic wholemeal flour, salt , water,....unlike the other breads on the market mine has only 3 ingredients. I occasionally add linseed, sunflower seeds and olive oil. if you want to discover the real taste, go for it! its a real addition.

As this is turning into a sourdough discussion thread.....

Anybody read 'Wheat Belly' or seen this video?

hail sourdough!!

i don't understand why `artisan breads` in supermarkets are sold unwrapped.

i don't want crumbs spilling everywhere when i unpack my shopping (attracting rodents).
