Salt Rising Bread
This bread necessitates a delicate, challenging process, but the end result will be absolutely delicious. Before bread is made, starter is made from salt, cornmeal, and sugar in milk, which can easily take an entire day.
Making the Starter: 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 tablespoon of cornmeal are added to heated milk.
Put this in a jar in a hot water-filled electric skillet or crock pot.
Keep the temperature between 105 and 115 degrees Fahrenheit (40 and 47 degrees Celsius) for 7 to 12 hours, or until fermentation is evident.
When the fermentation is complete, gas begins to escape.
It may take up to 24 hours for the bubble foam to form over the starter.
Continue baking bread only after the starter responds.
As the starter ferments, an odd salt-rising odor develops.
