The year 2020 was, for lack of a better word, a doozy. Things changed dramatically, rapidly, and many of us spent more time in our homes than ever before. But one thing that also meant was that we adopted some new kitchen habits, healthy ones that support ourselves and our environments.
Some of the big things that defined our shifting attention to food this year? Self-sufficiency and maximizing our ingredients: leading to less waste, more kitchen projects, and a whole lot of learning. Of the things we tried in 2020, there's actually quite a few that we're hoping we can bring into the New Year:
1. Making all the sourdough.
Seriously, all of it. From pasta to drinks to brownies and beyond, this was both the year we realized we could make our bread with nothing but flour, water, and patience (and these tips, honestly) and the year we realized we could add a bit of fermented goodness, to, well, everything.In the new year, we'll continue experimenting with crazy loaf additions and work on trying out flour blends to get even more nutrients out of our favorite new hobby.
