Recycled Sourdough Bread

This is really cool - you can recycle all your stale old bread in this version. The best bit is that the bread turns extra juicy in the process, and tasted even better than the standard version. What's not to like?

Ingredients Starter

  • 125g old bread, dried and ground into breadcrumbs
  • 275ml water
  • 1 tbsp sourdough starter

Ingredients Bread

  • 400g starter
  • 11g salt
  • 80g mixed seeds
  • 500g strong white flour
  • 250ml water


In the evening, mix the dried old bread crumbs and the water, and boil whilst stirring. You want a stiff paste. Let the paste cool down, and mix in the tablespoon of starter. Let the mixture sit under cover overnight. It should be nice and bubbly and risen in the morning.

In the morning, mix all the bread ingredients together, and let the mixture autolyse for an hour. Then stretch 3 times every 30 minutes (4 times - 2 hours), then let rest for an hour.

Give the dough 3 more stretches, flour it and put it into your proving basket.

Let rest in the proving basket for 2.5 to 3 hours.

Bake at 230 degrees for 15 minutes under steam, then reduce temperature to 180 degrees and bake for a further 35 minutes.
