Sourdough Bread

This recipe is based off of the New York Times' "No-knead" Sourdough. Though as far as I can tell most sourdough is "no-knead" so… Anyhow, it is at least a straight-forward and "simple" (in the world of sourdough) recipes.

  • 3 ½ cups (475g) bread flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon/6 grams kosher salt
  • ¾ cup (180g) sourdough starter, “fed”

The Day before

Feed your starter to wake it up.

The night before

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.

Sephardic Charoset

A few years ago I started making sephardic-style charoset for Passover... and I never stopped. Although it is not the classic apple and walnut dish of my youth, I like the flavors better and I find it easier to manage on a piece of matzah with horseradish.

This year, I discovered this Serious Eats recipe, which I found not only tasty but also easy to make. Win win!
