      This bread is really great - I've made it several times now. From all the sourdough recipes on here, this has turned out to be my favorite. Thanks for posting!!

      This was a very good bread, really easy to make and tasty. I made it for a dinner party, 3 smaller round loaves and 2 large round loaves. One guest ate half a large loaf herself. Thank you for a new recipe to add to my cookbook.
