Sourdough Bread

Some people may think I have weird items on my bucket list, but one of them was to make my own sourdough bread from an actual sourdough starter. I had tried to make my own sourdough starter twice. It didn't quite turn out very well. I got a starter from my friend's mom, and brought it back across the United States in a cooler. I made it one day, and totally loved it! I had to play with the temperature some, I think due to altitude, so some of my first batches were a little dry, but I think I got it worked out. It's so exciting to knock stuff off of my bucket list! I have to admit there are a few things on my bucket list that have to do with cooking...

I think it would be great to make your own starter, and give as a gift. Make something from the starter (i.e. bread, muffins), include the starter, directions and recipes. I would love a gift like that! A gift that keeps on giving!
