I dedicate this post to Wade Smith who gave me the Sour dough starter. Thank you. I finally did it Wade. I used the starter and made something with it and it turned out delicious. Thank you thank you thank you.
1 cup sourdough started
4 Tbs melted lard or shortening
1 tsp Baking soda
8 cups flour (plus more if needed and for kneading)
2 and 1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbs salt
Combine starter, all the water, and 3 cups of flour the night before and place in a warm, draft free place. The next morning add other ingredients and knead until smooth and elastic. Place in greased bowl in a warm place and let rise to double. Knead down again, shape into loaves, and let rise to the top of the pan plus a little and bake in greased pans in moderate oven at 375 for about an hour until done. When it sounds hollow it is ready. Turn out on racks and let cool.
