This has got to be one of my favorite past times. There is something primal about kneading dough with your bare hands and then watching it develop into a beautiful loaf of bread that the whole family devours within a day!
This recipe is truly a simple one with only three ingredients - the main thing you will need is bits of time throughout the day to complete each step (which only takes a few minutes each).
Don't be too daunted by the length of the recipe. I have just tried to explain the steps in detail to avoid any confusion throughout the process. I too was nervous in my first few attempts at making sourdough, however after a few tries you get to know what to look for at each step. Soon you'll be going through the motions without measurements and just using your intuition.
Okay enough rambling - let's get to the recipe!
