Sourdough A to Z eBook: Win a Copy!

bowl of sourdough crackers

Sourdough is a champion traditional food (don’t miss Stacey’s post on sourdough next Friday). By slowly fermenting the grain during the souring process, it becomes easily digestible (sometimes even for those with allergies or particular grain sensitivities), it reduces phytates (for better mineral availability and absorption), it even lower the insulin response to consuming the carbohydrates.

Even better, sourdough baked goods are simpler than you might think to make and very frugal. There is no added yeast necessary (a beneficial thing, because store bought yeast contributes to systemic yeast issues in the body), and the overall result with sourdough is just good, wholesome, tasty and nutritious. It is quickly becoming my preferred way to prepare grains and make baked goods.

Last fall, I reviewed the Sourdough eCourse from GNOWFGLINS, experimenting and learning all of the varied ways that sourdough can be used. Far beyond basic bread, sourdough methods can be applied to breakfast foods (crepes, pancakes, muffins), crackers, pizza dough, biscuits, and even sweet treats like cinnamon rolls, cake, cookies and pie!

I absolutely loved the eCourse contents and especially the videos, but I know that the cost of such a course isn’t a possibility for everyone. When Wardeh let me know that she had compiled an eBook with the same basic contents of the eCourse, I was thrilled.

No, you don’t get access to the videos and some of the amazing tutorials or the member forums that come with the Sourdough eCourse, BUT you still get all of the printed teaching material, and all of the amazing recipes, with very detailed instructions. Another great addition to the eBook is tips and fresh ideas and adaptations that have been contributed by those who took the eCourse and participated in the forums.

The Sourdough A to Z eBook

sourdough coverThe Sourdough A to Z eBook sells for $20, which I think is a complete steal (unless you’re a GNOWFGLINS eCourse member, and then it’s even cheaper). The amount of information packed into this 150 page book is 100% worthwhile, and I have no hesitation in recommending it to you wholeheartedly.

This is honestly the best and most comprehensive resource on sourdough that I know of. With 5 different authors collaborating their knowledge and experience to write it, and 25 detailed lessons, it will answer all of your sourdough questions and have you preparing incredible foods for your family in no time. Though I rarely print out eBooks, this is one that I would consider printing out to have in a binder as an easily accessible resource and recipe book.

I know, it sounds like I’m being a bit over the top. I try not to gush about products, but it’s hard not to when it is one that I personally feel is an incredible resource and great value.

Although I’ve been making sourdough breads on and off for years, I’ve been recently looking into the science of sourdough in a more in-depth way recently. Since our family has been struggling with remaining grain-free for a variety of reasons (although I still absolutely feel that GAPS is an excellent diet for healing the gut, reversing allergies and helping other disorders and disease as well), I’m looking for other ways to help improve my family’s digestive systems and food sensitivities. Sourdough is promising in this regard, because it helps to pre-digest the grains (making them far easier on the gut than other methods of preparation), greatly reduces disaccharide content in the finished product (while most baked goods are very high in disaccharides), and can make gluten and grain proteins tolerable for many who usually cannot tolerate them.

What the book includes:

  1. Starting a Starter, Caring for a Starter, and Gluten-Free Sourdough
  2. Sourdough Routines: An Interview with Three Bloggers
  3. Tortillas & Tortilla Chips
  4. Cakes: Chocolate & Spice
  5. No-Knead Sourdough Bread with Many Uses: Pita Bread, English Muffins, Cinnamon Rolls and more!
  6. Spelt Sandwich Bread, Dinner Rolls, Hamburger Buns, and Swirl Bread
  7. English Muffins 
& Sandwich Ideas
  8. Skillet Pancakes and Waffles
  9. Cinnamon Rolls
  10. Crepes & Crepe Cakes
  11. Basic Muffins & Variations
  12. Crackers: Plain, Cheese, and Variations
  13. Honey Whole Wheat Bread
  14. Gingerbread
  15. Pizza Crust & Pizza Pockets
  16. Pasta
  17. Pocket Bread and Middle Eastern Pizza
  18. Cornbread & Corn Fritters
  19. Donuts
  20. Biscuits
  21. Pot Pie
  22. Basic Scones & Variations
  23. Dehydrating/Preserving a Starter
  24. Cookies
  25. Impossible Pies — our no-wait, healthy variations on the Bisquick impossible pie!

I’ve never gotten a sourdough starter that made my bread rise the way that I thought it really should however, and even my most successful efforts have discouraged me in terms of keeping the starter going.

  25. I’d love to be able to toke the video course, but where my husband and I work (W. Africa), our internet service is neither fast enough nor reliable enough for that sort of a thing.

  44. I would love to win this e-book for a few reasons. First off, I suspect that gluten sensitivity may be a part of my husband’s and my life. Nothing serious, but the more we’re exposed to improperly prepared grains, the more it could become more of an issue down the road. I already soak a lot of our grains, but sourdough would be better. Second, I didn’t know you could make things like crepes(!) and cakes, and desserts with sourdough until I heard about Wardeh’s e-course! Third, with a baby on the way, even though $20 IS a steal for this book, we are watching our money closely right now, so winning it (hint, hint) would be a wonderful blessing! 🙂

  141. I’m on GAPS right now to hopefully heal my wheat allergy. I’d love to learn about sourdough for transitioning off of GAPS and also for my family. My husband eats white bread and we’re delaying giving my son wheat (he’s 1) to hopefully minimize chances of an allergy.

Maybe “someday” will be here sooner than I think 😉 It’s been years since I made sourdough bread (for soup) and I can’t remember a thing about it. I’m not sure what intrigues me.

  192. I’ve never been a fan of the taste of sourdough, but I’m willing to try anything that is easy to digest.

I’d like to win the eBook because it’s the only way I can afford to read it now.

  193. 1. Sourdough intrigues me … initially I found it weird to think you could leave something ‘going off’ on the counter and still eat it. My sisters (who do not eat sourdough ..yet!) call it ‘Hayley’s festering foods’ as I also have kefir in a jar on my counter! However, as I read through articles on your “Keeper of the Home” website, the benefits are now cemented and I safely and happily feed myself and my kids sourdough bread and sourdough pancakes. My husband eats the pancakes with real maple syrup and fresh cream, but will not touch the bread 🙂 (I know he loves me exploring these natural whole foods though, as he has just bought and started milking a cow, Jenny, for me – we are LOVING the fresh raw milk and cream). ANYWAY, back to sourdough, I would like to win the ‘Sourdough A to Z eBook’ as I want to explore further how I can get sourdough into my husband and children in creative ways. I want to try cakes and tortillas and gingerbread and I love how you can use it in almost anything!! I am growing my starter on my bench in anticipation of all the new recipes I will be trying!!!

  196. I am intimidated by sourdough, but I have heard it’s so much better for you, I’d love to learn more about it. Sounds like this book is a great resource. Besides learning about the actual sourdough process, I’d love learning more about using the “extra” dough that needs to be removed when you are feeding it. I heard you can make all sorts of baked goods, and I hate wasting, so it would be nice to learn how to do that!

  197. I really like that the process of sourdough pre-digests the grain. I’ve been wanting to learn to make my own starter for a while and learn to make sourdough versions of things we often eat, especially pancakes, tortillas and crackers.

    I have made sourdough cookies, cake, english muffins, pizza dough, waffles, hotcakes and of course bread.

  228. I’ve wanted to start making sourdough breads and such for quite some time now. I occasionally make soaked grain bread, but this would open up new healthy meal items to me!
