Sourdough Bread Recipe

Here is the recipe for sourdough bread using the starter:
1/2 cup oil 1 cup Sour Dough Starter
1/3 cup sugar 1 TBS. salt
1 1/2 cup warm water
6 cup bread flour
In a large bowl, make a stiff batter of all ingredients. Grease another bowl, put dough in and turn over (put oily side on top) Cover lightly and let stand till double in size. (I usually let mine sit overnight) Next, punch down, knead a little. Divide into 2 parts and knead on floured board. Put into greased loaf pans and brush with butter. Let rise 4 to 5 hours (all day is ok) Dough rises very slowly. Cover lightly while rising. Bake in 350 degree over for 30-40 minutes. Remove and brush with butter again. Cool on rack, wrap well and store in refrigerator. This bread can be frozen as it still tastes great.

Today is an outside day so I will leave you with the recipe and my scripture and thought for the day:
For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. 2 Chronicles 16:19
What a fearful world it would be if things just happened with nobody to manage or control!
Enjoy the recipe, enjoy your day, enjoy your family and friends, enjoy your work and crafts, enjoy a nice cup of tea and enjoy your blessings!

Thank you for the recipe. Ashley wants to build a wood fired oven under the pergola (big project) and I want to bake bread, roasts etc in it. Apparently it will be big enough to feed an army. I have been looking for recipies for sour dough bread and I think yours looks the best yet. Will wait for the weather to cool down a little before I attempt to heat up the kitchen trying it out though. Thanks for sharing, thanks also for the scripture. Just what I needed for today.

PS How much is one package of dried yeast, as in how many teaspoons? I buy my yeast in bulk and I'm not sure how much to add.

Thanks again
