This is a picture of the starter I made last night before going to bed.
This is the starter the in the morning...
I forgot to take a picture of the dough divided into 3 equal parts but here is the picture after I braided them together and in the middle of the next rise. I didn't have any sesame seeds in the house but I did have a bag of the artisan seed mix you can buy via King Arthur Flour catalog (or at the store like I did during our visit).
Fresh out of the oven and looking/smelling really good.
Review: I enjoyed making this recipe and I will totally make it again. It was fun going to bed and waking up in the morning to see if my started had "started". The next time I make this I will braid the dough onto parachment paper which I didn't do this time. I will also try to bake it on my pizza stone if it will fit. I might go out and buy just sesame seeds to see how it taste with that because the seed mixture has some strong flavors...the caraway seeds I believe.
