Bread of the Resistance: How to Make Sourdough Without Measuring
by: Tessalyn Morrison

Build your own culture and resist! Making sourdough bread can be intimidating for most of us. The idea that we need to have exact measurements, the unforgiving nature of sourdough, and the fear of failure drive many of us from even attempting the time consuming process. In this book, Tess Morrison walks you through how to make sourdough bread, as well as a few other recipes that use fermentation, in a straightforward, understanding, and measurement-free guide with wonderful, clear illustrations showing every step of the process.

The first half of the book is an introduction to the equipment, methods, and process - everything you need to know to start fermenting and baking. The second half contains recipes for crepes, crackers, and other delicious uses for your leftover starter, plus a wide variety of other measurement-free recipes for a wide variety of fermented and preserved foods, from yogurt to sauerkraut, tempeh to kombucha, and jam to salmon.In the process of making bread from scratch, with your own starter, your own hands, your own time, you will find that making bread is not only an act of creation, but an act of resistance.

It is resistance against consumer culture and against a society that has devalued quality and tradition in favor of convenience. Making your own bread will help you practice these traditions and rebuild these lost virtues. Put away your measuring cups and scales and learn how to truly see the bread, reacting to its needs and your senses, and in the process, make something that is uniquely your own.

Portland's most colorful, authentic, and empowering publishing house and distributor, Microcosm Publishing equips readers to make positive changes in their lives and in the world around them. Microcosm emphasizes skill-building, showing hidden histories, and fostering creativity through challenging conventional publishing wisdom with books and zines about DIY skills, food, bicycling, gender, self-care, and social justice.Microcosm has lived in milk crates, in closets, in a mud room, in a windowless basement, in a church, and under a desk at a major credit card company. We've brought our brightly colored books to infoshops, zine fests, media summits, bicycle conferences, parks, street corners, house shows, dirty bars, all­night coffeeshops, art museums, and every corner of the mainstream where we can clear away a little space to set up shop. We set out to save ourselves from not caring, but out there in the margins we've found communities worth always doing it better for. Now we have contracts instead of handshakes, a warehouse instead of a fanny pack full of zines. We have a staff, we have relationships in the industry that send our books to places we wouldn't have dreamed we could walk into ourselves. We're not as drunk or dirty as we used to be. But still, at heart, we've got this milk crate strapped to the back of a bike and we're riding wildly across town to hand you the book that might just be the one that saves your life!
