I blend my flours with several types during the process of sourdough baking. Our organic sourdough starter (Mr. Bubbles) used for baking is fed with an 100% organic whole wheat flour from Great River Organic Millers. Our Classic and 7-Grain loaves have a combination of an organic seven grain blend (whole wheat, brown rice, corn, rye, oats, barley, & millet) and a white bread flour which consists of malted barley and rye from Great River Organic Millers. All flours are vegan and dairy free! We also offer a gluten free sourdough that is made with a rice flour blend, psyllium husk, EVOO, salt, local Arizona honey (maple if you're vegan) and water.
I did! I started Mr. Bubbles (our organic starter) back in October of 2020 by simply mixing flour and water on repeat for the course of about 2 months until activity and robustness was achieved. It is a delicate process of ensuring he is fed daily to maintain flavor in each loaf. He is a live, natural sourdough starter or "microorganism" that I have feed almost every day for over two years. He is so fun to take care of! Sweet Hazel is our gluten free hand made starter that was made with brown rice flour and H2O in December of 2020!
All of our sourdough loaves are vegan and dairy free with the exception of those with honey, which you can substitute for maple or coconut sugar! Our sweet infused loaves do contain coconut sugar. We also offer a gluten friendly sourdough that is delicious minus the gluten! All loaves are also soy and egg free.
Sourdough is a beautiful, delicate process to learn! Sign up for one of our classes and I would love to teach you how to learn this great skill in your own kitchen. You can also follow me on Instagram @loveofsourdough for tips and happenings in my desert kitchen.
