Helping make sourdough recipes and food preservation simple and easy!
Have you ever found yourself thinking …
- I dream of making fresh, homemade bread for my family. But the process of baking sourdough bread seems a little overwhelming.
- I'd love to be able to make my own jams and can vegetables like mom and grandma used to do. But it looks really complicated and hard so I'll just keep buying it from the store.
- Making a sourdough starter takes so much time is it really worth it? Seven days seems like a lifetime, maybe I should just forget about it.
I believe ANYONE can learn to bake amazing homemade bread for their family!
I believe the food preservation process can be fun and build confidence in the kitchen!
I believe that the time invested in cultivating a sourdough starter is worth every penny. Your starter can last a lifetime and be passed down for generations to come!
What others are saying!
"I'm super excited to have come across your site! Per your excellent instructions I have starter bubbling in a jar on the counter!! Thank you for helping me get started with sourdough baking!" Jennifer
"Amy: Hello from northwestern Iowa. I would like to take a moment to thank you for your littlespoonfarm.com web site and also for your YouTube channel as well. I am very impressed with the quality, layout, and the content of each. I recently retired and am living with my 90-year old father. Frankly, before the recents events, we both enjoyed eating out almost every night - I'm not a very good cook! Last week I started looking at how to make sourdough starters and, thankfully, I found your YouTube channel. Using your methods, I have created a bubbly starter that a friend named, Clint Yeastwood. Hey, I was an IT guy and am not very creative. Last night I baked your beginner's sourdough bread and this morning I baked your sourdough biscuits. Both got the "can I have more" seal of approval from my somewhat picky father!" Steve
"Amy, I just wanted to thank you for teaching me how to make a starter, sourdough loaves, using the discard and how to store starter when absent for a period of time. My wife and I went on holiday overseas so I stored my starter. However, because of what you’ve taught me, I easily “awoke” my snoozing starter, and am now (impatiently!) waiting for my sourdough loaves to cool before I eat some much needed fresh delicious bread. Not to mention the fantastic crackers from the discard 😋. You’ve become something of a hero in our household!" Roddy
"Hi Amy I truly appreciate your sample time schedule as it all seems overwhelming.....but you've done a superior job of explaining in simple detail each step. I've made your sourdough discard crackers and LOVE them! Very addictive! Thanks again!" Pamela
"Hi Amy, After trying many SourDough starter recipes and wasting many 5 pound of flour bags, I stumbled across your Beginner's Sourdough Starter recipe about 10 days ago. Yesterday, on the 7th day of feeding, my starter passed the "Float" test. Yippppeeeeeeeeeee." Hannoush
"Hi Amy! Your starter directions worked perfectly and I am ready to make my first loaf!" Debbie
"Just produced 2 amazing sourdough loaves using your technique, thank so much!" Dave
About Amy, and the dream that shaped Little Spoon Farm
In 2017 I was introduced to the magical world of sourdough. Wondering why gluten was being touted as something I should avoid, I set out to find a more natural way to make bread. I stumbled across a Youtube video about sourdough and was immediately intrigued.
I watched hundreds of tutorials before I could really understand the process, which left me frustrated to say the least.
Once I "mastered" baking sourdough from home, I decided that other people were probably facing the same frustrations when trying to learn how to bake sourdough bread.
This my friends, is how Little Spoon Farm was born!
I have taken the guesswork out of beginner's sourdough recipes and I’m so excited to share my tips and tricks with you!
Sourdough baking has NEVER been so easy!
Not only that, I’m going to show you what else we are doing here at Little Spoon Farm.
The skills of water-bath canning and pressure canning are very important in our life. We love the security of having a "working pantry" of natural, healthy food on our shelves to enjoy year round.
We will be sharing recipes like homemade butter and jams to enjoy with your sourdough, as well as ways to preserve fruits, vegetables and meat for short and long-term food storage!
Amy has been blogging since 2014 at her original food blog, Amy in the Kitchen.
In 2019 Lodge Cast Iron featured her tips and tricks as an expert sourdough bread baker.
Amy and along with husband Mike, are the brains behind the blog, Little Spoon Farm. They bought Little Spoon Farm in December of 2017 to achieve their goal of leaving the busy city life and getting back to their roots. At the end of 2019, they decided to start this blog in order to help others learn how they can live a more peaceful and self-sustaining lifestyle. Today, it’s a space dedicated to sourdough recipes, food preservation, made-from-scratch recipes, DIY pantry staples and simple farmhouse living.
When they're not busy blogging, they love spending time with family, hanging out with the cows and putzing around the farm.
Most people are surprised to learn that they have 7 grown kids and chose to leave the city for the simple life, near the foothills of the Tennessee mountains.
We're so glad you stopped by Little Spoon Farm, and hope you’ll continue to come back and hang out. Cheers!
Mike and Amy
