Old Posts 2. Creating a Wild-Yeast Starter (Mother)
Now that you've gathered up the equipment you need and started a COUNTER MOTHER (pages 28-29), how's she doing? And her name? One of mine is named after my great granny, Hilda Matilda.

The variations of wild-bread batter bread are endless. Square, round, and/or flavored about sums it up. What are some variations that've worked for you? Tried any gluten-free?

Old Posts 7. English Muffins
Who doesn't think English Muffins make a breakfast? Maybe it's their slightly chewy texture that's soft at the same time it's also delicate and classy? Maybe it's the butter welled up in the eyes of an English Muffin? Maybe it's the jam? Ah, yes, strawberry. Raspberry? Maybe honey. Or cinnamon and sugar. Are English Muffins top of your list now for what you want to bake next?

Our Advanced Equipment Checklist on p. 61, along with basic kitchen equipment, will get you through the advanced section of our Wild Bread book. For a more detailed discussion, see Section 5, Equipment, p. 200. If you're already making bread, much of what is on our list is probably already in your kitchen. Feedback welcome!

Old Posts 2. Refrigerator Mother
Using the instructions on p. 58-59, you've determined you can take a step back from the daily care of your counter mother and turn her into a REFRIGERATOR MOTHER because she's finally ready for more advanced bread making. But just to make sure, did she double in height in 3 hours?

Old Posts 5. Advanced Cast-Iron Breads
We'd love to see your re-creation of the Advanced Skillet Bread on the front cover of Wild Bread. How'd your Advanced Dutch-Oven Bread turn out? What's your favorite flour to use for making cast-iron breads? Any tips? And wouldn't you know it, if you're thinking your cast-iron piece needs to be re-seasoned, there's a mighty good tutorial in MaryJane's Cast Iron Kitchen book.

Old Posts 6. Advanced Bagels and more ...
Who doesn't love a Bagel? Have you tried our Greek version, Koulouri? How about the Yiddish Bialy that's in a class all its own (kinda, sorta, but not really a bagel)? And when it comes to ceremonial breads, Challah (enriched with eggs and a little bit of sweetener) makes any table festive. Or you can pretend you're in Wales and enjoy a slightly sweetened loaf of Bara Brith.

Old Posts 7. How about some Advanced down-home loafin'?
Soft Pretzels dipped in mustard tops our Advanced loafin' list? After that, it's all about Sandwich Bread, Hamburger Buns, Parker House Rolls (divine), Flatbread, Pull-Apart Pumpkin Loaves, and Rustic Rye. Are there any others you can think of? Do show. And tell! Tips? Shortcuts? We can never get enough.

What are your favorite additions or toppings for Pancakes and Waffles? I like adding a dollop of cottage cheese to batches of pancakes. And my favorite flour for making waffles is quinoa.

For more detailed finger-shaking, don't neglect to click on "Read More".
1. DON'T RUSH THE PROCESS. This applies to everything from getting your mother started, to rising bread, to getting your mother established enough to convert your counter mother to a refrigerator mother. Read More
2. DON'T USE ANY OLE TAP WATER. Until you can get it tested to make sure it's pure, use either distilled or purified water. Trust us on this one. Read More
3. DON'T USE ANY OLE FLOUR. Choose one of the high-quality flours recommended in our Wild Bread book. Read More
4. DON'T FORGET TO CLEAN. Remember to give your mother a fresh towel on weekly Bake Days, and more often, as needed. Read More
5. DON'T SKIP FEEDINGS. It's incredibly important to feed your counter mother 2x/day. Read More
6. DON'T DO THE WORST AND HOPE FOR THE BEST. When it comes to your mother, remember, she's a living, breathing organism that needs maintenance and care. Read More
