Grissini (Piedmont-Style Breadsticks)
Crunchy on the outside and slightly soft in the center, these easy homemade breadsticks are a good way to use your sourdough starter. Substitute 1 tsp. of fresh starter for the active dry yeast, adding it with the olive oil and malt syrup. No barley malt syrup? Use molasses instead.
Tips: Brewer's yeast is a key ingredient in beer-making. It can also be used in bread baking to add a hint of beer-like bitterness. Find it in natural-foods stores or online.
Barley malt syrup, made from sprouted barley and water, is traditionally used as a sweetener in breads. Honey or molasses can be used instead but will give a less toasty flavor.
