A family with a mission: to escape the fitna (trials) of this worldly life by getting away from it all and living according to Allah's Perfect Decree to the best of our ability; to heal the earth through our most perfect examples in the Qur'an and the Sunnah, which in turn heals ourselves; and to teach others how to do the same, and give them a place to go where Islam can be lived and a life of worship enjoyed, in shaa Allah.
My first sourdough loaf, crispy crust and simply beautiful...to me!
My first sourdough loaf, sliced and waiting for butter!
The starter is nothing more than 1/2 cup flour and 1/3 cup water mixed in this jar and the same amounts added every 12 hours until it starts to get that lovely bubble! Simple as that.
It's been a long time coming, bringing the fine art of sourdough leavening to our home. Now it's finally here, we are all excited at the new taste and nutrient adventures open to us! Traditional leavening means no reliance on store bought yeast and changes a loaf of bread into a giant vitamin B supplement with a plethora of other available nutrients. It also neutralises whatever is aggravating about the grains, as they are soaked and treated in the age old way...and we LOVE age old ways maashaa Allah!
