Sourdough Dinner Rolls: Delicious and Easy to Make!

I love sourdough baking with my 5-year old starter.  My husband Jim says there traces of bread dough on everything in the kitchen ... Don't believe him!  😉

Sourdough Dinner Rolls

One of my staple sourdough bakes is Homemade Sourdough Dinner Rolls.  Tender and flakey, and oh so delicious.  The rolls can be used as dinner rolls or a sandwich buns.  They freeze well, so I can always keep some on hand.

  1. How do you make sourdough?

    1. Sourdough Starter is based on equal amounts by weight of flour and filtered water. That's it, no dried of active yeast, it just needs flour, water, and oxygen. Kept fed and in a jar that allows oxygen in, the flour/water mixture creates a bubbly, natural wild yeast in a doughy mixture that will raise anything just as well as active or wild yeast.

    1. No. True sourdough may have a bit of a tang, but it is not 'sour'. My sourdough changes in taste and smell slightly during the year, it typically smells like bread dough and ripe fruit of some type. Delicious. If you taste sourdough bread that is very sour, citric acid (aka sour salt) was likely added to give the sour taste. That's not true sourdough bread or sourdough baking, in my opinion.
