Step 1

The day before or early in the morning, refresh your sourdough starter with equal weights of flour and water. Let double in volume and use or refrigerate.

Step 2

Mix the starter with flour and water and let rest covered for 20 minutes.

Step 3

Sprinkle on the salt and knead the dough for 3 to 5 minutes on a lightly floured surface with floured hands until the salt is uniformly distributed.

Step 4

Stretch and fold by stretching the dough on an oiled counter with oiled hands into a rectangle and folding letter-style top down, bottom up and sides in to form a rough cubic package.

Step 5

Place in an oiled, straight-sided container covered. Clear containers work best to judge when the dough has doubled in volume.

Step 6

S&F every 30 minutes for one or two more times until the dough is silky smooth.

Step 7

When nearly doubled in size (about 2 hours), tip the dough onto a very lightly floured counter and gently form into ball or torpedo shapes.

Step 8

Place in floured or oiled bowl or a proofing basket (seam side up). Cover with oiled plastic and proof at room temperature about 45 to 60 minutes to bake or refrigerate overnight for baking the next morning.

Step 9

Preheat the oven to 425F with a steam pan (a skillet you add 1 cup hot water to).

Step 10

When the dough is 1 1/2 times the original volume (a refrigerated loaf should be ready to bake even cold), turn out the loaf (seam down) onto parchment paper (not oiled) and score with a sharp knife or razor blade.

Step 11

Bake for 15 min with steam, rotate loaf, remove steam pan, and bake for 20 more minutes without steam until 205 F internally.
