Making and baking a range of sourdough breads with @sandorkraut into which pairs of students incorporated other fermentation projects from throughout our past week and a half. Ingredients included spent forbidden rice grains from a pretty purple rice beer, kefirs, soaked seeds, fermented buckwheat groats, and, of course, our own beautiful, bubbling sourdough starter. #scvtsustainablefoodsystems #schoolofthenewamericanfarmstead #guthealth #sourdough #thesterlingkitchen #yourbeetingheart #krautsource #sandorkatz @yourbeetingheart @kraut_source
