Mother Yeast

The first recipe I’d like to share with you is Mother yeast (or called sourdough, natural leavening, natural leavening dough, mother dough or natural yeast).

I started using it in 2010 and since then I’m very proud and happy about the quality and properties of the baking products made with this natural yeast.

I made research in the web about it and outside Italy there are no complete information, or is often used a liquid sourdough that I personally think that it’s more complicated to maintain in the future and it’s not stable with every kind of dough.

To me it’s like a pet now, it’s alive! you have to feed it every 4-5 days and it took about 10 minutes to refresh, and if you do big quantities it can last even more than 10 days as I’ve specified in the appropriate section.
