Nope! Guess again. This is not an audiobook of recipes for sourdough. Neither is it an audiobook on a new fad diet. It is, instead, an audiobook about sourdough - what it is, who it's for, where it lives, how to create it, when it was discovered, and why we need it. It does include a sprinkling of recipes to get you through the gate of the vast and confusing world of sourdough.

It's an education on flour and water paste, yeast, time, temperature, humidity and environment. It's a tool to simplify your life and help you sort through the myriad of information to get the culture you want according to what you want to do with it. Want a sprinkling of sourdough yarns? Here they are...

Do you want quick, easy, healthy, and yummy bread products? Go with simple wild yeast sourdough. Do you want to start a club? Here's how to grow big and share. Do you want to set it and forget it? Here's how...

Sourdough-Love it- Discover it- Hear all about it

The Skinny on Sourdough by Alexie Linn & Joan Freed
Narrator- Mecie Delffs -she was terriffic. A smooth voice easy to
listen to over any length of time. Clear never garbling, smalll words
to very complicated were never a problem to understand. Much appreciated

Sourdough. If you want to make or eat sourdough or begin
a starter. This is the book. It begins with the backstory, history
How sourdough starters were so important they were protected 
and bartered over as far back as ancient egypt.

The science many house wives know is lactobacilli & yeast.
Lactobacilli breaks down the carbs-literally eating them in the flour
to make sugar. The yeast devours the resulting sugar to survive &Thrive. Bacteria - eats carbo to feed yeast to create carbon dioxide
making bubbles to make the culture grow.

The book then goes smoothlly into basic starters,sourdough starters.

It gave a result study, that was interesting. Taste,richness came from

Lactic acid. Acetic acid brought sour through vinegar. Importance

on where your starter lives, is it humid? 

A nice piece on how good for you sourdough is because of good yeast.

The lactobacilli is  natural & keeps more harmful bacteria from growing.

You also eat less when your gut is happy.

Explains flours, who knew flours had so many tastes. Recipes for starters & plain white bread & sourdough hotcakes, friendship coffee cake.  

Cute section about traditions. My family has traditions, we gather for Christmas & exchange special ornaments that will get handed
down thru ‘the generations. We also have special dishes at these holiday meals that have come down thru the generations.
A delicious potato casserole from my grandmother & zucchini casserole, dessert of my aunt.  3 generations old now just as the ornaments.

A big Family gathering family Favorite Getaway for Everyone.

A Wild yeast & sourdough starter, Yeast is in all of us & the air we breathe, Local unbleached flour.
Some one can be made keeper of the

Starter. Leave the pot out and have everyone stir with wooden spoons that are set out so everyone
has their own wooden spoon they get to keep.
Many more cute stories about folks & their sourdough starters.
Each story realy give you fabulous ideas, really well worth your time, like eating warm sourdough. Yum.
