Basic Sourdough Boule - 70% Hydration

70% Hydration Sourdough Boule

This is a scalable recipe designed to yield one large sourdough boule. This is the exact recipe used in our "How To Make A Basic Loaf of Sourdough Bread Video." Please see video and show notes for further information. Also, if you have a smaller dutch oven (this recipe calls for a 7qt), try halving the recipe by clicking on the appropriate button in the yield box to the right.

Sushi Rice Seasoning Vinegar

The seasoning for sushi rice is different for each sushi chef, and the ratio at which they season their rice is usually a closely guarded secret. Here's what worked for me when I was rolling sushi, and at the very least, it will give you a good starting point to develop your own ratios to fit your taste preferences.

Ginger Brine

This all purpose ginger brine is a great way to add flavor and tenderness to pork chops, chicken or other lean cuts of meat. All ounce measurements in this recipe are by weight and the yield is set at 32 cups (1 gallon) to make scaling easier.

How to Make a Basic Sourdough Boule - Video Recipe

In a previous Stella Bread Video, I demonstrated how to make a sourdough starter that could later be used to naturally levin any type of bread you desire. In this video, we take that starter and bake our first sourdough loaf, a 70% hydration boule that uses a large percentage of poolish starter for a quick rise, a small amount or whole wheat for a complex flavor, and a cast iron dutch oven to replicate a traditional hearth.
