Connie MooreIt has been a summer of experiments. As noted in two blogs, we have been working on mastering salt rising bread, and we are happy to report it has been accomplished! Well, at least for this week. You never really know with this bread. All three stages have their possibilities to go awry.

It was especially gratifying to hear from Susan Brown, coauthor of the book, Salt Rising Bread. She read our Grit blog concerning the bread conundrum and responded in a very encouraging email. After taking her advice about timing of sponge to dough, it worked out to two lovely loaves today.
