If you’re wanting to delve into the wonderful world of sourdough baking, you’ll need a good, strong and healthy sourdough starter. Follow this recipe to catch the wild yeasts of the air and grow your own sourdough.
- Mix together 3/4 cup flour and 1/2 cup warm water.
- Stir briskly to incorporate air and cover with a breathable lid.
- Let sit in a warm spot for 12-24 hours*.
- You may notice tiny bubbles after 24 hours, this means it’s working!
- Repeat the feedings every 12-24 hours (keep it consistent).
- Just before the 3rd feeding (and for all future feedings), remove half the starter and discard it before feeding again.
- Continue this process for 5-7 days until you have an active and bubbly sourdough starter.
- Your starter is now ready for baking!
- It’s important to use non-reactive supplies such as glass or food grade plastic.
- Feeding every 12 hours will speed up how quickly your starter grows, but will need to be maintained every 12 hours; feeding every 24 hours will take longer for an active starter to be ready, but will only require daily feedings from there on out.
