I found a recipe for our favorite Polish bread, zytni, and have started our second batch of sourdough starter. I had much better luck than the time I tried to make the starter for zurek in Tucson. My rye flour and water combination for the zurek grew mold rather than becoming a bubbly home for naturally occurring yeast – just wasn’t the right air I guess.
