Mesquite Glazed Sourdough

I've been making some unbelievably good sourdough this winter. I start with slowly adding rye flour and water to my culture. This takes 48 hours at a temperature of 72F (I'm using a fermentation chamber).

I prep the yeast with 2 T honey + 1/2 c of water + 1 t of yeast and let sit for 30 minutes.

Mix the following ingredients with the yeast start and wait one hour:

- 2 c white flour
- 1 c sourdough starter
- 1 t salt
- 1T caraway seed
- 2 t onion powder

Mix dough (again).

Move to baking container, sprinkle on mesquite flour and let rise for another hour. Bake at 350F for 50 minutes.

Nice. Looks like dutch crunch, aka tiger bread.
