Sourdough after a 156hr prove

Ever wondered how long you can push sourdough for? I baked these rolls  after a 156hr prove at 2C. They were very dry when they came out of the fridge and I slashed them with a bread knife, not expecting much. Cooked them for 8mins at 250C (fan) then 8mins at 220C (normal).

So you can go away on holiday for a few days and leave some sourdough rolls proving for a good few days. I think if anything, they rose up more than normal…

    Hi, how did you have them in fridge, are they just between couche folds – uncovered? in plastic bag? I only ever make big loaves, you are inspiring me to try these 🙂

      They are in between couche folds, yes, and covered with the couche cloth or a linen cloth. No plastic bag, no. Do give it a try and let me know how you get on!
