4-Pack San Francisco Sourdough Gourmet Bread Machine Mix
"This is an amazing bread mix."
If you own a bread machine, you owe it to yourself to try this sourdough bread mix! This is unlike any bread you've made. Now you can make wonderful, chewy, sourdough bread with that unique San Francisco sourdough flavor.
The California settlers relied on natural yeast spores to raise their bread and a good sourdough starter was prized and guarded. In the wet, cooler climate of San Francisco Bay, yeast spores and therefore starters, were different and San Francisco bread was distinctive with a unique sourdough flavor that is famous around the world.
With these bread mixes, you will make a San Francisco sourdough in your own kitchen, one that has the tangy, distinctive flavor of San Francisco Bay. It will be chewier and crustier than other bread made in your bread machine and will look like the authentic sourdough bread with its split white top.
This package contains:
- Four sourdough bread mixes, each make a large loaf--approximately two pounds.
- A SAF gourmet yeast packet is enclosed in each mix. You add only water.
- Directions and tips for perfect bread.

Notes to Bakers:
For a crusty bread: This sourdough bread naturally forms a more chewy crust than other mixes and a "medium" crust setting will be adequate in most bread machines. To maintain a chewy crust, store your bread in a paper bag, not plastic. (In plastic, the bread sweats and softens the outer crust.)
If you bake it in your oven: In your bread machine, this mix forms a very moist dough ball--too sticky to handle. You'll want to reduce the water by a couple tablespoons. You can make a wonderful sourdough bread in your oven but it takes a little patience. With less water, this is a slow riser. Allow at least a couple hours for it to rise on your counter.
If you make this bread in your bread machine, water temperature is critical. Please use a thermometer to measure water at exactly 80 degrees. A ten-degree difference in water temperature can double the growth rate of the yeast.
