Its time for the Homestead Abundance link-up.
This week I did a guest blog on the Grain Mill Wagon, sharing my recipe for lacto-fermented rye bread. Its an amazing 7 day process to make the sour dough starter, using just 3 ingredients — rye flour, filtered water, and sea salt. The salt inhibits alcohol yeast while encouraging the proliferation of lacto-bacteria aka probiotics. No commericial yeast is necessary for this amazing tasting bread. The gut-damaging phytates are removed through the long fermentation process, making the bread easier to digest. The lacto-fermentation also increases the B-vitamins in the bread. Once you’ve made the sourdough starter, your next loaves of sourdough rye bread are made in a few hours, rather than days. If you don’t like the idea of keeping the sourdough starter alive for weeks and weeks, you can use it all up and make the starter again when you want to using this easy 7 day process. — Homestead Abundance that starts with planting some winter rye and harvesting the grain. Or even easier, let a neighbor do grow the rye, like I did. It helps if you have a Wondermill Grain Mill in your kitchen, too. This recipe is amazing when made using freshly milled rye flour, instead of commercial rye flour. Here’s my recipe for Sourdough rye bread at the Grain Mill Wagon.
