Hi, Rose and everyone -

My friends and family always rave about the Sourdough Wheat with Seeds (The Bread Bible), so I decided to enter it into the Routt County Fair in northwest Colorado in August.  It won Reserve Grand Champion!  In fact, the judges told me later that it really was a toss up between it and another (really gorgeous) sourdough.  Yea! As a side note, my sourdough starter came from a long-time resident who said it was brought to Colorado in a covered wagon by her grandmother settler well over 100 years ago.  Thanks for sharing such a great bread with us, Rose.

Good for you, Lura!  It is a great bread—and a great story about the starter, too!
