lol no you live after eating Bear bread =)
Experimental food is well.... experimental and can have experimental results
Spiderman? Superman? Sourpussman? Ahh... I'm Batman (coarse gravelly whisper)
Bear bread batman? I don't think so lol
HANZO Hawaii Hero! Much better.
@Bear is already the Hawaii Hero. Couldn't and wouldn't step on his toes, @Ganado. Maybe just Loafman. THAT sounds pretty good.
More Sourdough adventures... be warned... graphic grossness to follow...
OK.... so I promised my Daughters friend who is a vegan that I would bake her a loaf of sourdough bread after my Daughter explained to her that my bread just had flour water and salt in it...
Oh and a few little beasties that float around in the air... and help the dough to rise with their copious farts
So she tried some that my Daughter took for her and she liked it.... hence my promise....
Ok.... so you know us bears... always wanting to push the limit... and pretty much love things that are "low maintenance"... (our wimmins too )
So I had 3 mason jars full of starter.... one I left and used after reviving after 1 week with no feeding....
The second I left and used after reviving after 2 weeks with no feeding... remember that black diarrhea stuff I found and poured out.... that's the one I used to make @Hanzo a loaf....
Still here????? 3rd and last warning.....
OK.... this 3rd jar has been left in for over 3 weeks with no feeding....
Black dried up poop on the top....
oh wait... is that mold????.... who knows.... mold is good for you right?????..... I mean I like blue cheese....
Here's the pics.... carefully scraped off the black and blue fuzzy poop... with about multiple spoons... didn't want to recontaminate the starter....
Smelled it... the starter not the poop.... and yup... she smells like starter.....
This stuff is now the consistency of very very thick peanut butter....
So I fed it.... 6 table spoons water... 5 table spoons whole wheat flour....
mixed her up... and now she is sitting....
Think she is still alive?????
LOL.... ain't it fun baking with a bear?!?!? probably turn out to be the best loaf I make.... if she is still alive
So there's the latest update....
Now you know why you don't want a bear in your kitchen
Have a great day everyone!
Take Care and God Bless,
This is a really great thread!
I think you're right bear... about it being "basic bushcraft"
(will pass on the explosive diaper parts IF POSSIBLE)
I love your experiments! and you make me laugh, even your mold is neat and ordering lol, look at all those lined up spoons with mold on them such a scientific, orderly mind
and just goes to show you even bears cant kill sourdough starter
This is a recipe for using with pans that don't have a nonstick surface.
You can grease and flour pans but this is much easier.
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup vegetable shortening
½ cup vegetable oil
1. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients with a hand mixer until the mixture slightly increases in volume and the mixture looks smooth and creamy.
2. Place in a covered container and store on counter top or in the pantry.
To use: Use a pastry brush, clean paper towel or clean fingers to coat the inside of baking pans before baking. Use within 3-4 months or store in refrigerator for longer use.

@Ganado Its ALIVE!!!!!!!
Even with dried sludge and unknown fuzzy critters on top!!!!!
Bear did not kill his sourdough starter!
My babies are still healthy, eating and farting away!!!!!
Oh my the mad scientist is born! Lol
Moto makes note to self, when @Bear says be warned he means it.
Certainly delivered on the graphic grossness. Are you sure that is okay to eat? Have you made bread with it & fed it to @Hanzo yet?
...because hanzo eats anything...
He's related to Mikey.
DUDES!!!!!!!! (and Dudettes )
Sourdough loaf is out of the oven and is AWESOME!
Smell is amazing and came out the best so far...
Guess it helps to mess up, use gross starter and keep the faith!
Parchment paper this time.... worked like a dream.... just came right off...
This one is going to my Daughter's friend... so it's great it came out my best so far!!!!!!
Life is amazing (or maybe I am just easily wowed by the life's simplest pleasures and wonders )
Love this song (yeah I played cowboys and indians and love Gunmoke and Matt Dillon! )and it just goes with making your own
bread and so many others things on a terrific day!
Take Care and God Bless,
I make a motion Bear gets banned from this forum forever.....his crime? Bread porn!!!!! For shame!
Looks like your best loaf yet.
A beauty @Bear
Bread porn? Lol it does make me hungry when I look at his creations. I can almost smell them. I think @Bear is more likely to get banned for experimenting on @Hanzo. Especially if we don't hear from Hanzo for awhile. But heck what are friends for if you can't experiment on them.
@Bear, more sour?
@Bear -- I made the pretzels.
This is my first time actually making homemade soft pretzels.
Final results: Critical success!
Recipe - Use your flour of choice. I went with...
I'd like to start one but every recipe I see says to refrigerate after it gets going. That's where the problem comes in. No refrigerator here in...
Have not ever attempted this but looks like its good info...
Sourdough primer: bread without "store- bought" yeasts...
I'm familiar with stocking up on precious metals, and trade goods, but eventually all that will run out. Eventually, a free market will emerge,...
