Sourdough Bread

1 cup sourdough starter
1 pkg active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 to 1 cup flour

Preheat oven to 400. Bring sourdough starter to room temp. Dissolve
active dry yeast in cups warm water. Stir in all-purpose flour,
salt sugar, and the sourdough starter.

Combine 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour and baking soda, stir into
sourdough mixture. Stir in as much of 1/2 to 1 cup flour as you
can mix in with a spoon. On a lightly floured surface knead in
enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that
is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total). Shape into a ball
in a greased bowl, turn once.

Cover, let rise in a warm place till double (1 to 1 1/2 hrs).

Punch down, divide in half. Cover, let rest 10 minutes. Shape
each half into a 6 inch round or 9x4 inch oblong loaf on a greased
baking sheet. With a sharp knife make crisscross slashes across
tops. Cover, let rise till nearly double (about 1 hour). Bake in
a 400 oven 35 to 40 minutes. Cool. Makes 2.
