This 2lb loaf is made from the same dough as the wild sourdough levain but with a generous addition of roasted and chopped walnuts. It is leavened with 100% wild cultured sourdough starter.
It begins with a 12 hour leaven preferment, which is then used to build the main dough. The final dough is fermented at 80-90F for 4-5 hours, followed by 18-24 hrs of cold fermentation before shaping, proofing and baking.
This loaf has a gorgeous interior, delicious walnut flavor and satisfyingly hearty crumb.
