Jalapeño Sourdough Cornbread
Making sourdough bread is a process that takes time. Some recipes require lots of time. However there are some recipes that depend upon the sourdough more for flavor than leavening. Like the sourdough banana pancakes I like to make. Here’s a recipe that uses a sponge for flavor and a little rise. It’s easy to make. And soo tasty. I got my starter from Linda C. Wilbourne. A very cool, accessible baker, who shares her recipes. She is all things sourdough. She originally got her strain from San Francisco.
1/2 cup sourdough starter
1 cup flour
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup of milk
2 tbs flax meal
1 and 1/4 cup cornmeal
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
5 jalapenos diced
1 small onion diced
½ cup corn
2 tbs honey
Mix the starter, flour, water, milk, and flax, and let it sit for four or five hours in in a warm place (up to 85 degrees). I sometimes leave it overnight. This will be your sponge.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Saute the peppers, onion, and corn, then mix in the honey. For this recipe, I used dark, unfiltered honey. It’s really tastes great, and it gives the bread a beautiful tawny color.
Mix 1 cup of flour with soda, and salt
Combine wet and dry ingredients
Lightly oil a frying pan and add ¼ cup cornmeal
Shake it , coating the bottom with the meal
Add the bread mixture and bake for 30 minutes or till golden brown
Poetry in the Parking Lot
This may seem like a waste of time, a completely dull and dreary hassle to wade through until your life resumes. This may seem like adolescent drivel, an old man’s ramble, an inconvenience, a contrivance of little or no value, but I think not. I call it poetry in the parking lot. Like the twitch of the discount liquor salesman’s moustache, like the journey of a flea, like the boot heel print in the snow, fifty five gallon drums, silent, waiting. Like the silent howl never heard, way down in the counties that don’t count. In the backyards of the harbors, in the empty lots, in the delapidated residence across the street, a for sale sign in the window. Why bother with the winter’s cough, a nose full of snot? Because it’s poetry in the parking lot.
