while i was offline this past month with my laptop down i have been making up homemade breads, cookies, jams and butters to sell at the local market for a little extra cash. my breads have been selling more than anything so im stuck in the kitchen for a couple days baking bread which is torture to smell and not be able to eat any!! lol most popular is banana bread of course but i also do pineapple, peach, zucchini, and pineapple banana. did zucchini last week because i had a few request for it and i only sold one damn loaf! then my dad gets me a bunch more zucchini so i made butter out of them last night. im making some apricot butter now... that i need to pay more attention to instead of typing this...lol... 

anyway as some of you may already know ive been making my jams for a few years now and have quite a collection that includes.. peach, apple maple, blueberry (need to do more while they are in season), strawberry (did fresh batch a few weeks ago), honey pineapple and pear (just did last week) also got apple butter but im runnin low on that and the apple jam. i cant wait for apple season this fall! had a lot of request for blackberry jam but cant ever find them in quantity. 

but i will start posting some of my recipes in the cookbook here when i can find the time. this way i will always have them even if my computer crashes and my house burns down destroying all my cookbooks! lol so stay tuned for my recipes and you will learn how to cook as good as i can..lol

Mrs. H  I recently did very well at the farmers market with my local sourdough.  I took a large mason jar and ran it in the autoclave. I also autoclaved half a quart of flour.  When it started to rain, I let it rain for 5 or so minutes and then placed my jar outside open and caught the rain water.  I added the water to the flour to make a paste and covered with a triple folded paper towel and secured it with a rubber band.  In about 4 days it started to bubble.  Nice wild yeast and native lacto bacteria. 

 

You can look up sourdough cultures online on how to handle them if you don't already know how to keep them going.  Im about on generation 40 from this and it produces great.  I like to add the yeast to the flour and let it set three days before baking to get nice and ripe.  Great for making pizza crust, rolls, bread and such....

Home grown sourdough = :)

My wife and I are working a culture that is coming up on its 3rd year birthday soon. It also makes really good cupcakes and lets not forget pancakes, just saying.

My sourdough culture died last year when it got buried in the fridge, and I forgot to bring it out and feed it. All attempts to resurrect it have failed. It was fun and delicious for two years........

I hope you start another my friend, but it is a lot like a pet, it needs attention and care to survive.

Funny story: My in-laws from Oregon had listened to my wife and I rave about out sourdough starter for about a year until they decided to try their own. Then one Saturday morning we got a call asking how we make our version of sourdough pancakes, as theirs was terrible. Come to find out my father in-law had just fried up cakes of sourdough starter and put butter and syrup on it. To be honest the thought still makes me shudder, but then laugh.

Peace,
Juth

I'll have to make some banana bread again. I haven't done that in so long. If you eventually post your recipe I will have to give it a try. I'm looking forward to discovering some of your recipes. It's nice of you to share them.

 

I also hope that you do well at the farmer's market. One of the colleges around here has one going and there's a lot of tasty stuff there. People who bake their own bread, especially if it's really tasty, seem to do very well for themselves there. Jams, bread, cookies, and muffins are big sellers.
