I have been called the queen of blisters…. ha ha ha! I love it! Now if you are from those countries where bread crust blisters are considered a fault, then you might want to skip this post.
Here in the USA we love blistered crust, holey crumb and sour tangy flavor in our sourdough bread. Who cares if the bread won’t hold our sandwiches together? If you can stick a finger through those holes in the crumb, you are rightly proud, and for good reason.
Now I like all kinds of crumb in my bread, but my favorite is moderately large holey crumb to eat plain with butter or use as dipping bread for soup.
