Marshall's sourdough

A message from Joelle today:
"Also, since our visit with you a couple of months ago, Marshall has started the business of rye bread baking. He made a "starter" just before Passover (good timing when we were supposed to clean the house from any chometz..!.). And so far he made 2 loaves, and they were delicious. We put a pan of water in the bottom of the oven..., as you suggested. Last week, he took a piece of dough from his last loaf and put it in the fridge as a starter for the next loaf. And since he used a small jar, the starter actually rose in the fridge and has popped the lid out and got out of the jar!!! I noticed this today. Bread is a living creature..."
I ran out of rye flour this week so baked a 100% whole wheat (stoneground, organic) sourdough loaf and it is delicious.
