Grissini is the perfect party food. You can serve it both as appetizers or as snacks, perhaps with a dip.
mature sourdough starter
topping of your taste
(fennel, flax, sesame seed etc.)
egg yolk or olive oil for brushing
Mix all ingredients, except oil or egg yolk and toppings, and knead until all flour is hydrated. I find it easiest to knead by hand.
Let the dough rest for at least 3 hours.
Pat out the dough into a plat rectangular shape with your hands.
Cut the dough into strips with a pizza cutter or sharp knife.
Brush the strips with olive oil or egg yolk and sprinkle with preferred topping.
Let the dough strips ferment for 1 hour. Preheat your oven to 480ºF / 250ºC.
Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Let cool on wire rack.
