I haven’t written about our Homestead Reference Library in a long time. It’s time to return to that topic.

One book that we rely on has come back to our attention in family discussions over the holidays: Pain Free: A Revolutionary Method for Stopping Chronic Pain by Pete Egoscue with Roger Gittines (check your local independent bookstore).

The Homestead Reference Library: Alaska Sourdough

By , February 20, 2013

It’s been a long time since I’ve written about our homestead reference library. In honor of our sourdough starter’s 21st anniversary today, It’a time to profile one of our most revered resources, Ruth Allman’s Alaska Sourdough (paid link) (check your local independent bookstore).

I’ve mentioned the book in an older post.This chatty, meandering, homely, yet wonderfully informative cookbook had been my mother’s guide in the care and use of sourdough through the years she raised it in our home. My parents gave us our own copy back in the early ’90s, and it has been our primary guide to all things sourdough ever since. In fact, I probably used a recipe from this book to start our own sourdough in the first place.
