National Sourdough Bread Day
Sourdough bread is a great addition to sandwiches, if there is one thing sandwich lovers know.
Bacon Lettuce Tomato sandwiches? They taste even better when sourdough adds a bite and tang to the sandwich. Burgers? Yes, burgers can be replaced with boring hamburger buns by butter-grilled sourdough bread. Tuna salad sandwiches? Sandwiches of tuna salad can be made even more delicious by adding a few slices of sourdough bread to it.
It’s no surprise that Sourdough Bread is celebrated on its own day. It shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Actually, the history of sourdough bread is quite long. Sourdough bread is made with dough that contains a combination of normal yeasts and Lactobacillus cultures. This is the name of the culture that gives bread its slightly sour taste. This is what makes it superior to other breads, depending on who asks. This culture gives the bread a longer shelf life.
Surprisingly, sourdough bread doesn’t have to be a staple in every household’s kitchen. It was actually the first form of leavening bread invented in human history.
For some breads to work, it is actually necessary to use sourdough culture. Rye bread is extremely low in gluten, which makes it difficult for traditional baker’s yeast to help it rise. This bread is perfect for using sourdough. Tuna is a great combination with sourdough bread. That’s why tuna on Rye is so wonderful.
San Francisco, California, is the home of Sourdough. Because French bakers brought leavening from France to California during the Gold Rush in the 1850’s, it was a way to provide food for those who were looking for precious gold.
Sourdough is no longer the most popular leavening agent for bread in many countries. Wheat-based breads do not require the same properties as sourdough leavening and were gradually replaced by beer barm. They became easier to use when purpose-grown yeasts were introduced and began to dominate the industry.
National Sourdough Bread Day is a reminder of the history of this staple of our diet and reminds us to remember that it remains one of the best breads on the market!
Celebrate National Sourdough Bread Day with lots of laughter, delicious bread, and great company!
National Sourdough Bread Day can be celebrated in the simplest way possible: eat it as a staple of your daily bread diet. Sourdough bagels are a great way to start your day. Then, prepare your lunch using sourdough bread instead of regular white or wheat bread.

For a surprise, try a sourdough cake chocolate cake for dinner. That’s right! National Sourdough Bread Day allows you to include sourdough in every meal.
Home baking sourdough bread will likely give home bakers a new appreciation for the hard work involved in running a bakery. Sourdough bread cannot be made in a flash. You need a starter. This is a living, wild yeast that has been allowed to mature for several days before being ready to use. Once the starter has been created, bread can be made at any time.
A friend willing to share a starter is the best way to obtain one. If you don’t have a starter nearby, you can make one yourself using whole grain flour, water and a mason container. Then, you will ‘feed’ it with organic bread flour every day. This will start the fermentation process necessary to make sourdough bread.
After the starter has been prepared, it’s easy to make the bread. It just takes a little bit of stirring, kneading, and rising.
The flavor of sourdough bread is so strong that you can eat it as a whole. Take a loaf with you to work and share it with your coworkers. You can also host a National Sourdough Bread Day party, where Sourdough Bread is the guest of honour! You can think of many ways to serve this delicious treat. Invite your friends to bring their own sourdough creations.
