There's a saying "That's the Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread." Surely, sliced bread was a marvelous invention. It allows you to reach inside a plastic bag and procure two well formed sliced of bread that you can make toast out of. You can even use it to make a sandwich. Arguably, it's the greatest invention ever. So then, why is sliced sourdough such yuk? It's true. If you buy sliced sourdough at the store it's not nearly as good as the uncut variety you get in those paper sleeves. In fact, the sliced version stores sell is barely recognizable as the same product. I don't know why that is.
