im not julie or julia but bread princes

i make bread with home made natural yeast.
its been nearly 2 years struggling with natural yeast.
but it taste better, and love crusty one.
sometimes it didnt work, so i gave unsuccessful bread to my dog.
it was very hard and sour...
he loved it somehow!
it was really good for his teeth. ;) munch munch
this time was fig yeast.
walnuts and raisin!
successful!!! yam yam
i think i am about to understand how to treat natural yeast.
its like a funny moody creature!;)
like me like me
