SEQUIM — Author Victoria Redhed Miller will present a simple approach to handmade bread with sourdough starter at 11 a.m. Saturday at Nash’s Farm Store.

The demonstration at the store at 4681 Sequim-Dungeness Way will be free and open to the public.

Sourdough starter, activated by wild yeast, can be used for making a lot more than just loaf breads and pizza, according to a news release.

Miller, author of the new book “From No-knead to Sourdough,” will present a simple approach to handmade bread for a hands-on experience where participants will learn to make and maintain sourdough starter to take home and use for making bread or pizza.

Miller will bring sourdough starter that participants may share.

It is recommended that each participant bring a clean jar with a lid to carry starter home. A wide-mouth, pint-sized Mason jar is ideal.

Miller also will talk about how to refresh and feed the starter to keep it going.

She grew up in Seattle and now lives with her husband, David, on their off-grid farm in the Olympic Mountain foothills near Sequim.

She writes and blogs about homesteading and self-reliance, as well as speaking at events around the country.

She is also the author of “Pure Poultry: Living Well with Heritage Chickens, Turkeys and Ducks,” and “Craft Distilling.”
